“Just two Aquariuses going at it: two control freaks, perfectionists that just can't stop working on a project,” .Paak said. “I love it.”
.Paak channels his mentor in his new musical creation, finding inspiration in the smooth, jazzy notes of old school hip hop and rap.
.Paak includes other famous names in his album, with features from artists Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Snoop Dogg, Pusha T, Kadhja Bonet, Norelle, Q-Tip, BJ the Chicago Kid and even Dr. Dre himself.
The second track on the album, “Headlow,” also begins with the same style of heavenly vocals, this time contributed by rising artist, Norelle. While .Paak raps much more on Oxnard than previous albums such as Malibu and Venice, he reminds us of his stunning vocals on this track especially, taking advantage of the chorus to add a melody to his lyric, making it one of my favorite songs on the album.
