Anderson .Paak is more of a critical darling than a household name.
His upcoming album Oxnard will have the type of features that are befitting of both.
Paak's third album and first on Aftermath will have Dr. Dre, Q–Tip, Snoop Dogg, Pusha T, J. Cole, and Kendrick Lamar on it.
He told Angie Martinez how the Cole feature came about
"Him and Dre was working and I was opening up for him on his last tour. He was like ‘Yo Dre played me something, this crazy one,” .Paak said, explaining how Dre’s snippet won Cole over. “It was unfinished, so I needed something…he was in town when I was working on it, I was wrapping it up. And I was like ‘If you around, pull up’ and he pulled right up.”
Oxnard drops next Friday, November 16.
