NxWorries - Suede
Months after breaking through with his vibrant, heartfelt album Malibu, Anderson .Paak continued to drape himself in his most garish threads—literally and metaphorically.
On Yes Lawd!, his collaborative project with bohemian beatmaker Knxwledge, you can picture the satin-smooth soul man peacocking in a blaxploitation joint, draped in a gaudy-as-hell coat with matching fedora. Knxwledge, meanwhile, chops up the samples into quick-fire sonic sketches; this is a beat tape of lean soul, grubby basslines and hard drum loops. .Paak delivers his low-level hustler anecdotes with a broad grin etched across his face.
This is old-school gold, as vintage as .Paak’s pla!d jackets. For best results, try bumping it on a convertible’s tape deck.
