His raspy vocals were all over Dr. Dre’s Compton album released in lieu of the Straight Outta Compton film.
Two full LPs in and now Anderson .Paak is an official Aftermath artist. The 29-year-old, along with the Doc, announced the news via Twitter.

With a tremendous following across social media platforms which include 40.4K fans on Instagram and 36.5K on Twitter, the Oxnard, Calif. bred artist got his break by chance, after an Aftermath A&R rep requested his services for the then-unknown Dr. Dre project.
Success then skyrocketed.
Anderson’s fusion of 60s funk, 70s soul with a modern twist of R&B, hip-hop and electro-music, births a melodic aesthetic that grabs attention sonically and lyrically.
