Anderson .Paak Signs to Dr Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment [VIDEO]
Anderson .Paak is making huge strides. After dropping his critically acclaimed album, Malibu, the crooner got signed to Aftermath Entertainment.
Dr. Dre made the announcement himself in a video shared on Paak's Twitter page. "I want y’all to say what’s up to the new Aftermath representative,” before the camera pans over to Paak who answers with a enthusiastic "Yes sir!"
Paak's Malibu only dropped a few weeks ago, but it has already become a favorite among music fans -- including one of our writers from The Boombox.
"Anderson Paak may be relatively new to the scene, but Malibu sounds like a seasoned veteran. It’s the first great rap album of 2016 and the first great R&B of 2016," read the review of Malibu.
The new joint venture doesn't come as much of a surprise. Paak is featured on more songs than any other artist on Dre's Compton with an appearance on six songs. The California native also shows up twice on The Documentary 2 by former Aftermath signee, The Game.
Aftermath has been behind some of the biggest heavyweights in hip-hop including Eminem, 50 Cent and Kendrick Lamar. Jon Connor and Justus are currently also under the label which holds six total on the roster.
And it seems Anderson .Paak is already on his way to superstardom. As he continues to tour the U.S., his second show in Paris, France was reportedly sold out.
