Malibu – Anderson .Paak
The aforementioned Malibu from Cali sensation Anderson .Paak is a personal favorite for this year. Many fans were introduced to .Paak on his scene stealing features on Dr. Dre’s Compton album last year, which with an extraordinary range of rapping and singing talent on his project that opened 2016. Malibu has it all, jazzy records that will make you dance, bars that illustrate past experiences in his life and collaborations with some of your favorite stars in The Game, BJ the Chicago Kid and ScHoolboy Q among others. Most importantly his band, The Free Nationals, will slide you into a continuous rhythmic funk that’s irresistible to your ear drums. All around excellent listen, give .Paak a chance.
