New Music: Anderson .Paak - 'Who R U?'
In just one week, Anderson .Paak will unleash his new album Oxnard.
After dropping the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Tints,” the Aftermath signee delivers a second offering with “Who R U?” Over the Dr. Dre and Mell-produced beat, .Paak reflects on realizing his dream (“I had the vision back in 12th grade, that I’d be killing shit with Doc Dre”) and elevating his game (“I”m on anotha wave”).
Oxnard, the last album in .Paak’s “beach series,” will be released Nov. 16. The 14-track follow-up to 2016’s Malibu includes appearances from J. Cole, Pusha-T, Q-Tip, Snoop Dogg, and Dre, who serves as executive producer.
“One of the most amazing, hardest, funnest, happiest, saddest times in my life,” .Paak told Beats 1 of Oxnard. “Just so many different experiences. I’m just so grateful and blessed to make this record with [Dre]. It’s my best work.”
While promoting Oxnard, he recently stopped by Power 106’s L.A. Leakers, where he spit a freestyle over Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s “Get Money.” Watch him show out below.
