    Default Anderson .Paak

    This dude is probably my #1 of the weekend only because I've seen Kamasi so many times this year and have yet to see him. Rapper/R&B singer/cool ass mfer. His new album Malibu is coming out in ten days. He's one half of a rad duo called NxWorries with a producer named Knxwledge who produced "Momma" on To Pimp a Butterfly. They put out a friggin great EP last month called the Link Up & Suede EP. He won't be there with Knxwledge tho but with his band the Free Nationals. Not quite sure what to expect but I'm so excited.

    He was good at Low End Fest the last two years.

    "Suede" was one of my favorite songs of 2015:


    So was "Animals":

    He's known to put on a great live show. Lots of energy. This will be a slept-on set.

    His set at Low End Theory in August was straight up fire. Do not miss him!

    I'm watching these "Animal" shorts of his tonight and it's making me even more excited. Watching Dre, Busta, Schoolboy Q, Domo Genesis, The Game, and Kendrick all get totally blown away by him in the studio.

    His new album Malibu comes out on Friday and just got an 8.6 on Pitchfork. I know we don't care about those kinds of things but for a smaller artist it's still pretty cool.

    Kendrick's spirit feels present at many points on Malibu. .Paak's quicksilver flow on "Your Prime" feels teleported in directly from To Pimp a Butterfly as the music flows expansively from creamy soul harmonies to trap cadences. But .Paak is a confident and unique presence, with a strong command of style and genre as a producer and songwriter. He leapfrogs three eras in a festive suite of songs mid-album that examine heartbreak: '60s soul on "Put Me Thru," club grooves on "Am I Wrong," and '90s hip-hop on "Without You." His musical and emotional generosity ties everything together, making Malibu an expansive opus that flows in multiple directions like a classic '70s double album.

    He's playing in New York this month if any of you can make it. Only other tour dates right now are European.

    I can't even count how many times I've said I'm sooooooo excited and grateful to be living in this city right now. There's a current in the air. Everyone talks about it.

    Absolutely. I am way behind on this shit. I go back and see old shows over the past few years and just cry inside. Cause they're all playing bigger venues now. I missed out big time on the intimacy. I'm just glad I have my Piano Bar nights for the time being.

    Lately it's been Ryan on trombone, Tony on drums and then a mix of non-core members. But we've definitely had everyone in WCGD come through in the past few months including Kamasi altho that's super rare now.

    Yup this scene has been going off since at least 08, it's really awesome to see everyone getting their due. I remember going to a show that had Kendrick opening for GZA and someone else in like 09-10. I missed Kendrick cause I didn't like his music at the time. Alot of those early Odd Future shows were fire too, same for Fly Lo and that whole camp. Low End Theory fest at the Shrine felt like the ultimately pay off, it was cool to be there.

    yeah, I had more fun the first year but last year definitely felt like a kind of celebration.

    Has anyone heard the .Paak record? as far as I can tell it hasn't leaked yet... I've had the single on repeat the last couple days.

    I haven't. I know they had a listening party here in LA a couple days ago but haven't seen anything come out from that. So far I've heard probably four songs off the album? Come Down, Room in Here, Am I Wrong, and The Season / Carry Me. I feel like I've heard one more but maybe not. I really wanna hear Put Me Thru. Oh well, only two more days.

    Malibu is out tomorrow, but it leaked today and is floating around for those interested.

    I'm getting more and more excited for this set the more I listen to his music; that split EP he did with Knxlwedge last year is really great too.

    Just had my first listen of Malibu and Anderson Paak just sky rocketed up my must see list for the weekend. Big things are coming this guys way. I'm guessing Action Bronson's spot on the main from last year. I'll be having this album on repeat for weeks.
