Anderson .Paak’s ‘Ventura’ Got ‘Oxnard’ The F*ck Outta Here

So, before I begin, let me say that I’m a fan of Anderson .Paak’s Oxnard. Yes, I know that a lot of people were lukewarm about it, but that album had a couple of bangers, son. I mean, “Headlow,” “Anywhere” and “Sweet Chick” are some of the best songs he’s ever made, man. Side note, I dug “Anywhere” so much that I couldn’t help but play it on Instagram, fam. In any case, despite some high moments, the album wasn’t as great as we all wanted it to be. With that being said, he destroyed shit on this new Ventura album, bruh.

Ok, let’s address the elephant in the room, son. Listen, we all know why Oxnard wasn’t what it should’ve been. On the real, it’s Dr. Dre’s fault, man. Now, before the internet flambés me, let me explain, fam. Look, Dr. Dre is the greatest Hip Hop producer of all time. Like, everyone can have their own personal favorites, but no producer in the history of Rap has accomplished as much as Dre. Despite that, he didn’t need to produce shit on .Paak’s album, bruh. Frankly, .Paak has already established his sound. Keeping it a buck, Dre should’ve just let him do his thing, folks.

Real talk, .Paak is an incredible musician and live performer, son. Because of this, I want all of his songs to embrace his strengths, man. Why would I want to hear “Who R U?” when I can rock out to “King James”? The truth is, Ventura encapsulates all of .Paak’s abilities, fam. All I know is, I can’t wait to see him perform this shit live, bruh.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say here, son. Ultimately, Anderson .Paak’s new album is dope as hell, man. By and by, everyone needs to go out and listen to Ventura, fam. For God’s sake, he has André 3000, Smokey Robinson, Lalah Hathaway, Jazmine Sullivan, Sonyae Elise, Brandy and Nate Dogg on the same project, bruh. What else needs to be said? Nothing. LC out.

P.S.Reachin’ 2 Much” with Lalah Hathaway is my JAM right now, son. That is all.

I’ve Got Anderson .Paak’s ‘Bubblin’ On Repeat

Keeping it a buck, I like days like this, son. I like the days where I don’t have some soul-crushing current event weighing me down, man. Real talk, on these days, I just get lost in the music, fam. In any case, when it comes to dope artists, Anderson .Paak is high on my list, bruh. I mean, I’ve already written about my fan-dom in a previous post, people. Anyway, after dominating 2016 with two fire albums (Malibu and Yes Lawd! with Knxwledge), .Paak is back with his new joint “Bubblin.” All in all, I’ve had this jam on repeat since it dropped, folks.

Now, I won’t take up too much of everyone’s time today, son. Basically, everybody needs to familiarize themselves with this song, man. On the real, the shit is high energy and makes me want to relive my college days, fam. Side note, my body literally wouldn’t be able to handle that level of alcohol anymore, bruh. Shit, sometimes I wonder how I’m still functioning, people. For God‘s sake, I drank A LOT, brethren! In any case, the song was produced by Jahlil Beats and AntMan Wonder. In addition, the record was mixed by Dr. Dre, so the bass is HITTING, folks. All I know is, the joint will keep on spinning until .Paak drops his next album.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, son. Ultimately, all of the fine folks out there can’t peep the music video below. By and by, no one can say that I didn’t look out for my supporters, man. That is all. LC out.

Anderson .Paak Is The Truth!

To be real, I don’t have much time to write today, son. The Man has his foot on my neck right now, bruh. In any case, I still wanted to give some shine to a dude I’ve been listening to for some time now: Anderson .Paak. While I’m still giving repeated spins to his Malibu album, he just released his new album Yes Lawd! with beatmaker extraordinare, Knxwledge. Together, they form the group NxWorries. So, everyone should do themselves a favor and peep the new record that dropped today.

Now, I don’t want to be the “I was up on that artist first” guy, but I’ve definitely been listening to Anderson since he went by the name Breezy Lovejoy. I first got hip to him through his collaborations with Tiron & Ayomari. Side note, if anyone isn’t familiar with the names I just mentioned, as Fredro Starr would say, “do your Googles.” In any case, Anderson has been dope for a while and it’s awesome to see an artist like him get his just due. Shit, he was just on Ellen, son. Ellen! With all of that being said, the good folks out there can check out some of his music below. Do the right thing, man. No “mumble rap” over here, bro. Unless it’s Future. Good day.
