#DJFreedomLives with daily updates!
Artist Spotlight is on my dude Anderson.Paak today!
Born Feb 8 (happy belated born day!) this multifaceted recording and performing artist sings, raps, plays drums and music producer...and innovator.
His song "Am I Wrong" is everything. A smooth nu-disco vibe is featured in a current Google/Verizon commercial. It is of course a breakout hit for me and many of my DJ peers. Get ready for loads of remixes.
He performed on this year's Grammy Award ceremony with A Tribe Called Quest ("Come Down"...his song, and "We The People" their song). It was a great look.
Last year he was named as one of the XXL Freshman...in my opinion the most talented artist to come out of that list.
He came into the business of music through Sa-Ra (Shafiq Husayn), and has since worked behind the scenes and out front with The Game, American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart, Dr. Dre's "Compton" (2015), ScHoolboy Q and one of my favorite hip-hop producers 9th Wonder.
Keep your eyes open as AP begins to surface more and more...but never loses sight of staying musically credible.
