Release Date: April 12, 2019 “The combination of Dre’s perfectionist production with AP’s unparalleled musical talent has made for a modern classic that reaches Malibu status.” Ventura is breathtaking.

People often credit Tupac Shakur as being the pre-eminent and greatest rapper of the golden age of hip-hop (early-mid ’90s for those of you playing along at home). To say otherwise is seen as a sacrilege – even career-ruining (Looking at you, Lil’ Xan, or Lil’ Whatever). I think there’s some truth in 2Pac being […]
The White Household administrations of equally George Bush senior and Invoice Clinton criticized the style. “The rationale why rap is beneath assault is mainly because it exposes every one of the contradictions of yankee culture … What commenced out as an underground art variety has become a motor vehicle to reveal loads of vital challenges […]

Anderson .Paak has been feelin’ it lately with an ever-versatile, high-stepping vengeance. In case you’ve been stuck under some rocks, the Malibu singer/songwriter/rapper/drummer/producer helped end 2018 on a strong note with his Dr Dre-collaborated, rap rave-up Oxnard.
