Anderson .Paak has had us waiting with baited breath for Malibu for months, and its landing has confirmed that it’s been absolutely worth it. Packed with production from himself, 9th Wonder, Madlib, and Kaytranada, the beats are mellow and soulful. Appearances from Talib Kweli, Rapsody, Schoolboy Q, The Game, and give the album nice stylistic diversity, but .Paak’s signature R&B/Hip Hop combo style is still laced carefully through every track. Enjoy this masterpiece that’s sure to bring .Paak into the mainstream conversation.
