Listen to Anderson .Paak’s Live ‘Spotify Sessions’ Album
Anderson .Paak has dropped his first live album. The Aftermath artist linked up with Spotify to release his own entry to the streaming service's ongoing Spotify Sessions series. The project features Paak's performance at the Spotify House during the 2016 South By Southwest Festival.
The set is mostly comprised of tracks from Anderson. Paak's breakthrough album Malibu. But the talented rapper/singer also performs a song from his 2014 album Venice, "Suede" from he and Knxlwedge's debut EP as NxWorries and a past collaboration with Southern California rapper Jonwayne.
Anderson .Paak's latest release comes on the heels of his criticism of fellow 2016 XXL Freshman Lil Yachty. Paak called out Lil Boat for his ignorance of hip-hop history.
"Don’t be cocky in the fact that you don’t know anything about hip hop history," Paak tweeted on Aug. 27. "Real artists are students of the game first."
Lil Yachty has received plenty of scorn from hip-hop fans due to his comments about the genre and culture. The Atlanta native called serious rap boring in addition to claiming that he could not name five songs from The Notorious B.I.G. or Tupac Shakur. Anderson .Paak was one of the first contemporaries of Yachty to condemn the "Minnesota" creator's lack of knowledge.
With the release of the Spotify Sessions, Anderson .Paak can get the focus back on his music. The former Breezy Lovejoy's project serves as a nice holdover as fans await his highly anticipated Yes Lawd album with Knxwledge. The official tracklist and stream for the live LP are below.
2. "Green Light"
3. "The Waters"
4. "The Season / Carry Me"
5. "Put Me Thru"
