Everything we know about Anderson .Paak’s new album.

Written by LN Team / September 27, 2018

It’s now been over two years since Anderson .Paak last released an album (with ‘Malibu’ back in 2016, the album that saw him receive a Grammy nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album), and 2018 looks to be the year for a new album.

In an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this month, the SoCal rapper revealed the title of his upcoming record is ‘Oxnard’, and that it was executive produced by none other than Dr. Dre.

The album, that was named after the city he grew up in, is expected to see a release later this year, and is described by .Paak himself as, “the album I dreamed of making in high school, when I was listening to [Jay-Z]’s The Blueprint, The Game’s The Documentary, and [Kanye West’s] The College Dropout.”

Later in the interview, it was also revealed that the elusive DJ and producer Madlib has contributed beats to the upcoming album - “He sent me this one, the one that I’ve got on the album, it didn’t even sound… Like, I could tell it was Madlib from the jump, but it sounded different from what I was used to.”

The album is described by the journalist as featuring “sprawling psychedelic grooves and confident verses,” and will also be his first release on Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment.

Outside of that interview, .Paak took to his Instagram account where he posted a photo of himself with Kendrick Lamar alongside the date October 4th, meaning that perhaps a collaboration between the two artists will be dropping on that day…
