It’s been a busy 2016 for Anderson .Paak. 48 hours ago, the Cali native announced that he signed to Dr. Dre’s legendary label, Aftermath Entertainment. A few weeks earlier, he released his fantastic indie offering, Malibu. Before embarking on the European leg of his Off The Ground tour, Anderson talks about working with the Doc, Compton contributions, DJ Premier, writing process, family, and more. Yes Lord!

    “Malibu” is dope and with Dre really behind him now imagine the production for his next LP? This guy is going to be a problem

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      I agree. He killed Compton and Malibu is already one of the best albums this year

      • Ghost

        The legendary B.Dot!

        • SaniAbacha

          Lol.

      • Winston Wolfe

        So dope! Been on repeat all week. No fillers.

    • mac DIESEL

      With Dre behind him…Pause???

  • Gargemels tracksuit

    Genuine artistry who surrounds himself with true craftsmanship. Y’all got his story out of him too. Excited for the extended project with knxwledge to drop. Upper echelon podcast status!!

  • el jim chapo guzman

    I can see a Kendrick and Anderson paak collabo coming soon.

    • Lil Uzi Vert

      Me too

      • Donn

        Sonic, just stop! Seriously. The shit isn’t funny anymore. We know it’s you. Why? No clue? Can’t explain crazy.

  • I like his nose ring and tongue. No homo.

    • Lil Uzi Vert

      Cosign bro

      • Bruh?

        Bruh? Now you’re talking to yourself? These trolls ain’t loyal.

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      Nah i don’t think this is gon be the case

      • $₱₳ṝ₭≳.

        Exactly . I think its all about what you can do on your own when you get with Dre!… Malibu is clearly a STRONG body of work .. All AP has to do is get in the right song & do his part & his name will ring!…Dude has a Lenny Krav Style with a mix of Hipster .. This should work! lol

      • Neighborhood Soup..

        It’s not…This nigga Anderson Paak is ready to go… He’s the truth.. That Malibu is everything…

    • Arizona Ron From Tucson

      How when hes putting out his own material and Dre give him creative control! Marsha is a permanent songwriter for Dre, Rakim was washed up, Stat is the Co-CEO for Game’s label Blood Money and Bishop wasn’t marketable!

  • Ghost

    Not hating on Dre or Aftermath but the amount of artists over the years who have signed with the label and not released any albums or even music. Hopefully this changes, I know Em and Kendrick release albums but it’s Em and Kendrick man.

    Jon Connor, Justus and Anderson .Paak are signed to the label now as well let’s hope they get a chance to release music through Aftermath. If Dre isn’t going to make any more albums, why can’t he get Aftermath as the top lable in the game? He knows a talented rapper when he see’s one, why can’t he sign more artists and start releasing a nuber of albums this year?

    Make that aftermath roster bigger and better, take over the game.

    • The Incredible Creation

      I don’t see Jon ever coming out tho ..sadly

  • i might actually check this out

    • Lil Uzi Vert

      Anderon paak should work with 50.

  • Da Business

    • ilexx

      Ive heard u screaming this ghostwriter crap before.

      You do realize Anderson Paak has never ghostwritten anything for Dr. Dre before right?

      Dude was featured on six songs on Compton but that’s about it.

  • ilexx

    RR decided to strike while the iron is hot. Perfect timing for an Anderson Paak interview. This is a must listen.

    However it would have been nice to see you guys give this man some support before he signed a major label deal. I guess this is a bit out of character for u guys though, just for stepping out and supporting somebody who hasn’t had any REAL mainstream success yet.

    Dude is hella talented. I’m just glad he seems to be getting the attention he deserves.

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      Fun fact. he was booked last week. But the snow fucked that up. So, here we are.

      • ilexx

        Hey I’m definitely acknowledging that you guys have great timing with this one.

        After listening I realized your friend hit u up about Malibu, you eventually listened, you guys have the podcast, its a good look. Was a good inciteful interview too.

        Just want to see more of these, they are alot of dope artists you guys could actually be the tipping point for, just shine that light on it when you get put on to it.

  • Sina Mailer Daemon Djavadkhani

    Wow excited for this ! Malibu is fire!!

  • Sina Mailer Daemon Djavadkhani

    paak is so cool! Family story is crazy , great to hear the Dre behind the scene stuff, cool to hear about the Australia tour!

  • ImKing

    This was an excellent interview. Anderson is gonna be huge. I play “Malibu” every other day. PeAcE.

  • Brokeback Cowboy

    Yeah Rap Radar got in early with this one! And nice to see an artist smiling too, rather than trying to look like they just murdered someone. I do think this guy will do well and he deserves it.

  • El Funk

    are they are upping RapChat as a “way to craft your art”?
