Anderson .Paak 'Malibu' 2xLP
This is the second album by rap / hip-hop / nu-soul wunderkind Anderson .Paak. It features production from 9th Wonder, DJ Khalil, Madlib, Kaytranada, Pomo, Dem Jointz, Callum Conner, Hi-Tek, Anderson .Paak and The FreeNationals. Featured vocalists include ScHoolboy Q, Talib Kweli, BJ The Chicago Kid, Rhapsody and The Game. 'Malibu' is the maturation of .Paak's journey from soul and R&B over into hip-hop and even soulful house / disco, all the while giving listeners a deep look into his personal experience.
First focus song, the disco funky 'Am I Wrong', has already picked up 30+ plays on Radio 1/1Xtra since mid-November, including a Jam Hot 'Record of the Week' slot from Mistajam. 'Am In Wrong' and the soulful confessional 'The Season/Carry Me' (premiered by Dr Dre on his Beats1 show) have racked up 350K plays each on Soundcloud since mid-November.
