“Growing up in Oxnard gave me the grit and the church to find this voice of mine. One town over I went further and found my depth. The duality of each place inspired me greatly and from that I made two albums at the exact same time but held one back because that would have been too many songs to perform live for you all! I like ending things on an even number so welcome to ‘Ventura’” –Anderson .Paak
With 2018 came the start of these next chapters in Anderson’s much-celebrated career as we saw the release of his critically acclaimed album Oxnard with it’s single “Bubblin” that went on to win him a Grammy® for Best Rap Performance, a coveted debut slot on Saturday Night Live performing “Tints” with special guest Kendrick Lamar as well as “Who R U?” and a flurry of press accolades and opportunities showcasing Anderson’s talent and personality (a rare couch spot on Fallon starting off 2019 for example).
The Oxnard album marked a career high for him debuting as the #1 Independent album in the country according to Billboard as well as debuting at #5 on the Rap chart, #6 on the Hip Hop/R&B chart and #11 on the Top 200. The phenomenal album was executive produced by Dr. Dre and features the likes of hip-hop legends Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, J. Cole, Q-Tip, and Pusha T. Following the album’s release, .Paak has been on a sold-out tour in both the US and Europe, with fans anxious to see his energetic and captivating live performances.
