Oxnard – Anderson .Paak (November 16)
This California crooner already had a celebrated release with 2016’s Malibu. Now Anderson .Paak is returning with his much-anticipated release Oxnard. The project, which is being released through Aftermath Records, supposedly got the Midas touch from Dr. Dre and fellow iconic hip hop producer Madlib. “This is 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,” .Paak told Rolling Stone in September.
It seems like we can expect some hip hop-tinged soul come November. Paak’s latest collab with one of rap’s biggest stars, Kendrick Lamar, proves greatness is in store.
