Nate Dogg is Featured on Anderson .Paak’s Upcoming Album

Anderson .Paak is gearing up to release a new album six months after the release of Oxnard.

The Grammy-winning artist unveiled the tracklist on Thursday and the collection notable features Nate Dogg, who’s featured on the last track, “What Can We Do.”

After his departure from Death Row, Nate Dogg collaborated with artists like Fabolous, Eminem, Mos Def and Ludacris to deliver catchy choruses on their songs.

It’ll be a treat to hear his posthumous vocals on Anderson .Paak’s project, Ventura which is slate to be released in April.

The collection also notably features Andre 3000 and pays homage to LeBron James. Check out the tracklist below:

1. “Come Home” featuring André 3000

Anderson .Paak’s 1st Song From His Next Album Is All Heart & Soul (Audio)

On March 4, Keith Flint of the Electronic music group, The Prodigy, was found dead in his Essex, England home. Tragically, the 49-year-old took his life just one month after his final performance with the group.

The British collective crossed over into the mainstream upon the release of their third studio album, 1997’s The Fat Of The Land. The Prodigy made waves with the album’s singles, “Firestarter” and “Breathe,” both reaching #1 on the UK charts. Eventually, the band’s third single from the project, “Smack My B*tch Up,” found its way to the charts with an alley-oop from a nod to Hip-Hop innovators, the Ultramagnetic MCs.

Ced Gee, TR Love, Mo Love, and Kool Keith Thornton are all listed alongside Howlett as songwriters on the 1997 Dance hit. The chorus vocals placed on the multi-platinum record are sampled from Critical Beatdown‘s “Give The Drummer Some.” In an interview with HipHopDX contributor Dana Scott, Kool Keith and Ced also explain how the recognition and paycheck from another genre came at a really important time in their personal lives.

Keith remembers The Prodigy approaching him. “They had called me up. Liam [Howlett] was a great friend anyway.” Howlett co-founded The Prodigy with Maxim Reality, Leeroy Thornhill, and Flint, who served as dancer and vocalist.

Ced Gee follows, “Let me tell how he got his number. What happened was they were working with the president of Next Plateau, Eddie O’ Loughlin, at the time. He cleared the sample. So Eddie said, ‘Why don’t you just do it fresh with Keith?’ Because I was working at Next Plateau at the time as the head of A&R and we gave them Keith’s number, and that’s how the reach out became. That’s how they started working together.” Next Plateau, who put out Critical Beatdown, had also worked closely with Salt-N-Pepa, Paperboy, and Antoinette, in addition to a roster of Dance acts.

Kool Keith explains how friendship transcended collaboration. “I did shows with [The Prodigy] when the record [The Fat Of The Land] came out. I did one or two shows with them. One of them in New York and another, I think, in Melbourne, Australia. I was backstage with them and [Keith Flint] was a cool person. They had a lot of champagne, a lot of girls and cool Electronic music. That was a nice tour out there with them. And for the first time, it was good that I had real fun with those guys.”

Kool Keith, Dan The Automator & QBert Revive Dr. Octagon With A New Album & Single (Audio)

Later, Kool and Ced talk about other records The Prodigy used their lyrics for, and the compensation they received for “Smack My B*tch Up.”

Kool also recalls how the 1997 hit, which he and Ced received platinum plaques for, led to more work. “They had another album [Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned] with the big lips on it where they sampled our stuff, too.” Those compositions included “Wake Up Call” and “You’ll Be Under My Wheels.” As Scott points out, Keith’s “Critical Breakdown” vocal (“I’ll take your brain to another dimension / Pay close attention“) was sampled for The Prodigy’s 1992 single, “Out of Space.”

Ced Gee, recognized for his revolutionary sample techniques, said the re-purposed music was a blessing. “I was under a levy from the IRS at that time. The ‘Smack My B*tch Up’ sample paid off the levy which was about $100,000. After it was over and all corrected, I still had $18,000. That’s how sweet that was. [Laughs] I got that, so imagine what [others] made.”

Keith expounds, “I never had to run around to chase that money, and I was provided for well. And I hope that band didn’t break up, but Keith was such an important person as the lead singer in the band. That’s like Michael Jackson in Jackson 5, Kurt Cobain [in Nirvana], so it’s kind of hard.” Recently, Lord Finesse, another Bronx O.G. whose vocal was used by British Electronic star Fatboy Slim, says he regrets the terms of licensing his material. That appears not to be the case for Ced and Keith. In the late ’90s, Keith was battling against Ruffhouse/Sony Records to release his Black Elvis album, which he discusses at length in the interview.

Outside of remembering Flint and Prodigy, Kool Keith unveils an upcoming release of a new album he recorded with one of The Beatnuts. “I just did an album with Psycho Les that’s coming out. I got Paul Wall, Jeru The Damaja, Erick Sermon and B-Real from Cypress Hill on it. The two Ultramag’ co-founders also confirm upcoming work together.

Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let Ambrosia For Heads fight through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, is better than it’s ever been. Not only are we able to go back and listen to all of our favorites, at the click of a button, there is also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and veteran alike…if you know where to look. To help with that task, we’ve created a playlist with recent music—songs that have been released within the last year or so. We update it regularly, so, if you like what you hear, subscribe to follow us on Spotify.

2018 was a pivotal year for Anderson .Paak. Last November, .Paak paid homage to his California hometown with the Dr. Dre-executive produced album, Oxnard, with features from Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Pusha T, J. Cole, and Q-Tip. Additionally, .Paak wrapped up the year with a Grammy win for his Oxnard preceding loosie single, “Bubblin,” in a tie with Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Future, and James Blake’s “King’s Dead,” from the K-Dot-helmed collaborative project, Black Panther: The Album.

Anderson .Paak’s Song With Q-Tip & Dr. Dre Is A Reason To Celebrate (Audio)

Just two weeks after his Grammy nod, .Paak announced the release of a brand new project, Ventura, and his biggest national tour schedule to date. This week, the man formerly known as Breezy LoveJoy unveiled a studded tracklist for the album with guest appearances from Andre 3000, the late Nate Dogg, Smokey Robinson, Brandy, and Sonyae Elise. In anticipation for the record, The Free Nationals front-man drops his first track, “King James.”

The mood for his latest single is chocked full of Soul and Jazz influences that .Paak has been praised for. “King James” is a labor of love to push through troubling times, and Anderson makes his point heard as he takes an empowering political twist on a funky, plush production. .Paak sings, “We’ve been through it all, though it could be worse / We’ve been moved around in a state of alert / There’s nothing new or sharp about the cutting edge / If they build a wall, let’s jump the fence, I’m over this.”

Anderson .Paak Flexes On A New Dr. Dre Production (Audio)

Saluting the activism displayed by professional athletes like Colin Kaepernick, Eric Reid, and more, .Paak interpolates NBA All-Star LeBron James into the record, becoming the catalyst for the change .Paak is seeking in the world. He continues, “We couldn’t stand to see our children shot dead in the streets / But when I finally took a knee / Them crackers took me out the league / Now I’m not much for games / But I play for keeps / And we salute King James for using his change / To create some equal opportunities.”

The song is produced by Callum and Kiefer, who did “Smile / Pretty” on last year’s Oxnard. Anderson .Paak is set to release his fourth studio album, Ventura, April 12. It will be through Dre’s Aftermath in conjunction with Doug Morris’ 12 Tone Music.

In addition to new music from Anderson .Paak, the official AFH playlist includes songs from Billy Danze, 2 Chainz, J. Cole, Nas, Atmosphere, Boogie, Eminem, Big K.R.I.T., Pharoahe Monch, Denzel Curry, Benny The Butcher, Masta Ace & Marco Polo, Apollo Brown & Joell Ortiz, Drake, AZ, Bun B, Wu-Tang Clan, Evidence, and others.

Anderson .Paak Salutes LeBron James on New Single “King James” [Listen]

Anderson .Paak

Source: Shun Atkins / Radio One

We’re a little less than a month away from getting a full helping of what Anderson .Paak‘s been cooking up when he serves up his next album Ventura. But until then he’s giving his fans an appetizer with his latest single “King James” to hold them over till it’s time for the main course.

Like most of his prior work, “King James” is a funk/neo-soul driven cut in which he uses the music to pay homage to one LeBron James for his work in the Black community. Don’t expect LeBron haters to bump this joint any time soon but don’t be surprised if it’s played a lot at Lakers home games.

Check out “King James” below and let us know if you’ll be checking for Ventura when it drops on April 12.

Anderson .Paak’s New Album Features Andre 3000 & Nate Dogg

In less than a month (April 12), Anderson Paak will release his fourth solo album, Ventura. It marks the singer/MC/drummer/producer’s second release with Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment, arriving less than six months after Oxnard. Last month, Paak took home a Grammy Award for 2018 single “Bubblin’,” his first solo release with the label. Before today, fans did not know much about the project other than its name and drop date. Now though, not only are they getting the first single, Andy has revealed his tracklist to an album said to be more soulful than his 2018 LP. André 3000 Delivers His First Rap Verse In More Than A Year. Listen Here. The 11th and final track on Ventura, titled “What Can We Do?” will feature posthumous vocals from Nate Dogg. Nate, like Anderson, was a Dr. Dre-affiliated singer who incorporated Hip-Hop themes and lexicon into his music. After leaving Death Row Records in 1997, he worked extensively with artists including Fabolous, Ludacris, and Eminem, in addition to his solo career and co-founding status with 213. Notably, tomorrow (March 15), marks exactly eight years since the Long Beach, California representative died from complications related to a stroke. Also of note, on the Ventura intro “Come Home,” OutKast’s Andre 3000 is slated to make an appearance. The LP is reported to also feature Smokey Robinson, Lalah Hathaway, Brandy, and Jazmine Sullivan, among others. Six Years After His Passing, We Still Have Much Love For Nate Dogg (Video) Anderson .Paak’s Ventura tracklisting: 1. “Come Home” (feat. André 3000) 2. “Make It Better” (feat. Smokey Robinson) 3. “Reachin’ 2 Much” (feat. Lalah Hathaway) 4. “Winners Circle” 5. “Good Heels” (feat. Jazmine Sullivan) 6. “Yada Yada” 7. “King James” 8. “Chosen One” (feat. Sonyae Elise) 9. “Jet Black” (feat. Brandy) 10. “Twilight” 11. “What Can We Do?” (feat. Nate Dogg) Interestingly, Heads are also learning that Dr. Dre will be quarterbacking a lot of the production on the album. During an interview posted by Esquire just days ago, the Oxnard, Cali native said Dre had much less input on his forthcoming effort. “He let me have a lot of leeway on Ventura,” he said. “He was like, ‘it seems like you got it.’ I spread my wings on the production and on the writing and on these collaborations.” As mentioned above, Anderson released a new single called “King James.” It’s a groovy number that echoes many of the vibes pronounced on Oxnard. According to Paak, it will be available on all platforms tomorrow.

The 21-date tour will begin in Nashville, Tennessee and end on the West Coast in San Fransisco. Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, Mac DeMarco, and Jessie Reyez are all slated to accompany Paak during different legs of the tour as well.

Anderson .Paak Confirms Coachella ’19 Performance: “No Lawd I Ain’t Got No Extra Passes”

Anderson .Paak

West Coast hip-hop artist Anderson .Paak is really pulling through for Coachella this spring. The rap crooner has confirmed he’s performing at the annual music festival.

On Thursday, .Paak went to Instagram to let followers know he’ll be hitting the stage.

This spring, hip-hop star Childish Gambino is set to headline alongside music heavyweights Ariana Grande and Tame Impala.

Yesterday, reports emerged about rap star Kanye West pulling out of Coachella over a set design dispute.

Kanye made it clear he wouldn’t perform on a traditional 60×40 foot stage because it was “artistically limiting.” Goldenvoice, which produces the festival, would not allow the stage to be altered or removed for Ye’s performance. In the end, we’re told Kanye passed. A Kanye source says after the Saint Pablo tour, Ye wants to give groundbreaking performances. As you know, the Saint Pablo stage moved over the crowd, and Kanye loved it. (TMZ)

Last fall, speculation developed about Kanye, Gambino and singer Justin Timberlake getting recruited for the music festival.

Informed sources tell us that the Coachella 2019 lineup will be headlined by Childish Gambino (Friday), Justin Timberlake (Saturday) and Kanye West (Sunday). Believe it or not. Stay tuned for updates, and try to lay off the molly until the festival starts. (HITS Daily Double)

7 Things We Learned From Anderson .Paak on The Breakfast Club

Instagram Photo

A week before Thanksgiving last month Anderson .Paak released his highly anticipated album Oxnard and while Dr. Dre isn’t exactly known for working with singers/rappers, people agree that the two do seem to have some pretty good chemistry together.

After rocking his musical performance this past weekend on Saturday Night Live, the rapper/singer decided to check the Breakfast Club where Angela Yee and DJ Envy continue to hold the fort down while Charlamagne Tha God is out sowing his royal oats (we kidding, y’all).

Touching on topics from how religion had him ditching Hip-Hop to his role in getting his father locked up, Anderson .Paak shows and proves that he’s really lived a life and it’s shaped him into the star he is today.

Here are the 7 things we learned from Anderson .Paak on The Breakfast Club.

1. Soul Survivor

At the age of 13 Anderson was introduced to church and took to it so hard that he threw away his Snoop Dogg album and other CD’s and began to bump Kirk Franklin and church music to save his soul. Naturally he ended up signed to Dr. Dre as an adult.
