The boy’s done well. Brandon Paak Anderson’s parents and stepfather had been sent down by the time he was 18. As a newly wed, he had become homeless with a baby boy in tow. Today, he’s a musician at full pelt, anointed by Dr. Dre and able to attract the who’s who of hip hop to work with him. Malibu is his third long player and his second as Anderson .Paak. Rather like Chance The Rapper’s Surf, the album is a community project, featuring friends and peers (The Game, ScHoolboy Q, Talib Kweli). ‘Come Down’ takes its turn towards the end of the album as an intoxicating marriage of hip hop, R&B, funk and soul.
