“Music is not music without soul” and the 29 year old Oakland native Anderson .Paak is the definition of soul. Following his debut album Venice .Paak delivers yet another masterpiece with Malibu. The 16-track project is full of energy thanks to his funky beats, witty wordplay, and a charisma that the music industry has been lacking for a while now. You definitely can see the fruits of his labor from Dr. Dre’s Grammy nominated Compton album as he scored features from BJ The Chicago Kid, Rhapsody, and hip-hop legend Talib Kweli to name a few. .Paak shows his versatility as an artist as well as he not only sings but displays his rapping ability. The album doesn’t just sound good though, his music has a message highlighting the real life situations and perspectives many artists of his stature seem to either conveniently forget or consciously neglect for financial gain. .Paak is gearing up for a huge 2016 with his band The FREE NATIONALS as they are set to tour Europe in February and to perform at Coachella this upcoming April. Malibu is available for purchase on iTunes and Google Play.
