Anderson .Paak & Knxwledge Deconstruct Their Favorite Cuts, Talk NxWorries + More On NPR

Two weeks with Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge‘s debut album as NxWorries and we’re just beginning to uncover the dusty loop-digging magic within. Though the album itself is all we really need to get to knxw the geniuses behind-the-scenes, both singer and producer have graced NPR with an interview that should pique the interests of newcomers and seasoned vets alike. Sitting with Timmhotep Aku, Paak and an uncharacteristically candid Knxwledge delve into how they came across one another’s music and their earliest introductions to hip-hop, deconstructing the cuts that are nearest and dearest to their hearts.

You can peep the full interview down below along with Anderson .Paak’s touring itinerary. But if you’ve yet to grab your copy of NxWorries’ debut album Yes Lawd!, drop everything you’re doing and hit iTunes to cop what is hands down one of the year’s best offerings regardless of genre. You can also purchase the album on wax via Stones Throw.

Anderson .Paak Tour Dates:
Oct 29 @ FreakFest – Madison, WI
Nov 12-13 @ Exposition Park – Los Angeles, CA
Dec 02 @ The Forum – Inglewood, CA
Dec 10 @ Hollywood Palladium – Los Angeles, CA
