How Dre Anointed Anderson .Paak

Dre hasn’t just declared ‘Its All On Me’ on his new album Compton but he’s also done what he does best – introduce the world to future legends in the making.

Fellow Cali native Anderson .Paak has laced a number of tracks with his raspy R&B vocals on ‘Compton’ and Dre clearly knew what he was doing when he added this gritty vocalist on 4 tracks, “All In A Day’s Work,” “Issues,” “Medicine Man” and “Animals”. There’s no doubt it’s definitely perked curiosity around .Paak.

Anderson .Paak’s road to glory couldn’t have come from a better co-sign then two of the most legendary producers in Hip-Hop from the East and West Coast  – DJ Premier and Dr Dre – when their roads collided. When .Paak wrote the fiery ‘Animals’ in support of the Baltimore uprising, Dre knew the powerful and deep spirit of the track was essential to the soundtrack for the movie ‘Straight Outta Compton’.

Still indie although for how much longer who knows – Anderson .Paak, has been honing his craft as a singer/songwriter, rapper and drummer and released his debut album ‘Venice’ last year. Setting his tone with an experimental ’70s soul and funk beat loaded R&B sound, he’s pushing the cart to create a new genre in music.

Previously known as Breezy Lovejoy .Paak ooze’s a confidence when he sings ‘smooth as a motherfucker, suede on the inside’.
