Anderson Paak‘s got the world talking. Fresh off the release of his sophomore album, Malibu, the Cali-bred crooner has left a massive mark on the game with an album that already seems poised to conquer in 2016, even just a few weeks in. It’s a mark and a sound that’s been embraced by his west coast constituents, which is on full-display in the latest installment of Snoop Dogg‘s GGN program, where the brothers in herb and geography burn down and discuss how an early encounter with Superfly set a satiny and swagged-out tone for a life in music.
Elsewhere they touch on the influence of Juice and how the film inspired Paak to take up a creative outlet, which was well nurtured by a family that spun classic soul and r&b around the house. Peep the full interview of Anderson Paak below to find out who his dream collaborators are, what records he’d bring with him to a desert island and so much more. And then once you’re properly acquainted, grab a copy of his absolutely stellar Malibu LP on iTunes today and hold tight for that follow-through with NxWorries, arriving imminently via Stones Throw.
