Spoilt for choice so far this year with some of the best album releases we've seen in a long time such as Kaytranada's 99.9%, Anderson .Paak's Malibu, Terrace Martin's Velvet Portraits and Kendrick's Untitled Unmastered. We peaked a little too soon in 2016 so getting excited about new projects was not really on the cards till we read @AndersonPaak's tweet:
For those that haven't yet heard of the NxWorries project, singer/rapper/drummer Anderson .Paak and producer Knxwledge have teamed up & are making waves with their funky futuristic sound. The pair will be released their new album soon (within the next few weeks we hope) through independently run Stones Throw Records.
You've all definitely heard Knxwledge on Kendrick Lamar's "To Pimp A Butterfly", he produced the song "Momma" and also had a lot to do with the genre-blending sound of the album. Anderson .Paak has already released one of the best albums of the year and has been collabing with all the hottest artists in between. With all that said, it's evident there's going to be a lot of greatness oozing out of this upcoming album.
Have a listen to the NxWorries work so far and you'll start to believe the hype:
