About the Series

“Power Book IV: Force” centers on fan-favorite character Tommy Egan, played by Joseph Sikora, after he cuts ties and puts New York in his rearview mirror for good. As Tommy leaves New York after losing Ghost, LaKeisha, and the only city he’s ever known, he makes a quick detour to close an old wound that’s been haunting him for decades. What was supposed to be a quick stop turns into a labyrinth of family secrets and lies Tommy thought were long buried. One step leads to another, and Tommy quickly finds himself in Chicago’s drug game, inserting himself between the city’s two biggest crews. In a city divided by race, Tommy straddles the line, ultimately becoming the lynchpin that not only unites them but holds the POWER to watch them crumble.

Problem – Don’t Be Mad At Me

Multi-talented Grammy-nominated Compton musician Problem returns to his day 1 collaborators Freddie Gibbs and Snoop Dogg to remix his stand-out track “Don’t Be Mad At Me” from his recently released Coffee & Kush Vol 1 album. The remix brings 3 artists together as they put aside their egos to make amends with their queens. 

Produced by DJ Kai and Miles Rose, the hypnotizing track adds Freddie Gibbs’ raw scorching bars followed by Snoop Dogg’s smooth and seductive flow while Problem charms his way back in. Coffee and Kush Vol 1 is available now via Diamond Lane Music Group/Rostrum Records. Problem explains, “Freddie has been my dawg since we first started. He was on Mollywood 1 & 3. Snoop is a king. Any time he grants me with his presence, I honor it. I appreciate what these two bring to the game. And it was fun taking them out of their element.” Problem continues, “I want this song to help couples get through these tough quarantine times together. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Being the bigger person is the key. 

The song was actually recorded as a real apology. I was wrong about something we had a small argument about and instead of just saying sorry, I went and did the song and sent it to her. It worked lol.” “Don’t Be Mad At Me” has gained millions of streams on DSP’s and has landed on sought after playlists.
