Anderson .Paak: Malibu
Buy! - (EMPIRE/OBE/Steel Wool/Art Club)
This Oxnard, CA rapper's second regular studio album is a masterful set of expansive hip hop and cosmic R&B/soul inflected with jazz, funk, gospel and other styles, combining a warm, melodic and often-breezy sound with his relaxed, slightly raspy vocals and smartly detailed lyrics of love and struggle. Many special guests contribute, with on-point production from Madlib, 9th Wonder, DJ Khalil and other luminaries. 1/21/2016 - Don Yates
