Anderson Paak has made huge strides forward in a relatively short space of time. He is one of the most exciting young talents on the circuit today. Paak’s talents were first recognized by Dr. Dre who asked the youngster to work on his album “Compton.” Now that was a big risk to take as the record was Dre’s comeback album but he knew he had a special talent on his hands.
Paak did more work on the album than Eminem and Snoop Dogg who also featured on the record. That was because of the confidence Dr. Dre had in his abilities. Paak repaid the faith and is now among the fastest rising names in hip hop music. He is all set to fly Down Under and perform in New Zealand and Australia soon. Who knows he might just hit the road for his fans in the US too. Get ready to grab your Anderson Paak tickets when that happens because you would not want to miss out on the chance to see him live in concert.
Anderson Paak was a student at Foothill Technology High School and that was when he first began to produce music – from his own bedroom. He first got a taste of performing in front of people in a church as a drummer.
It was in the year 2011 that his life began to turn around and he first began to make his mark in LA. He started to work on his first album and “O.B.E. Vol. 1” came out as a digital download in the middle of 2012. Paak then went on to play drums for Haley Reinhart. In November of 2013, he released “Cover Art,” an EP. That was a follow up to “Lovejoy” another LP that had been released for digital download on October 31, 2012.
