The new crown prince of hip-hop, r&b, funk and soul. ‘Why Anderson .Paak is one of the most daring artists for 2017' went the headline in Billboard midway through last year. According to the American music site, that's because the Californian singer, rapper and drummer is so artistically diverse. His music contains funk and soul but also electro and indie rock. And .Paak is authentic. His story is personal and gripping. Life has not been easy for this young man. .Paak's star began to rise when hip-hop legend Dr. Dre put him on his 'Compton' album in 2015. Shortly afterwards, his own ‘Malibu’ (2016) showed the exceptional breadth of his possibilities. It won him Grammy nominations for ‘Best New Artist’ and ‘Best Urban Contemporary Album’.
