    There’s no one better than Problem to give us a tour of the West Coast. So, ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino sat down with Problem for an exclusive interview about the three West Coast albums that impacted him the most.

    If you don’t know (and you should by now), Problem’s headed straight to the top of rap this year when his new album Diamond Lane America arrives. This is just the beginning for him...

    Take a look at what he said below.

    The Three West Coast Albums That Impacted Problem The Most

    2PacThe Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory

    Problem: “That song “Blasphemy,” for some reason, made that album for me. It completed it. You can’t sleep on it. True 2Pac fans feel that. You can feel every song. He means all that shit.”

    Dr. DreThe Chronic

    Problem:The Chronic introduced us to everybody, of course [Laughs]. Dr. Dre has this thing he knows how to capture those moments. He knows how to capture the sounds of the times.”

    DJ QuikSafe & Sound

    Problem: “It’s the fact that DJ Quik really was a one man renegade on that album. He produced the tracks. It was just well-put together. He addressed a lot of issues. He was one of his kind being from Compton. It was a moment, man. The music was a clean gangsta sound. It was fly gangsta shit. It’s not slept on, but I feel like it should still be mentioned with All Eyez on Me and The Chronic.”
