Anderson .Paak Breaks Down Dr. Dre's Involvement With His Upcoming Album

The Aftermath Entertainment artist drops the new single "Bubblin".

(AllHipHop News) Andre "Dr. Dre" Young played a role in constructing the successful music careers of Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, The Game, and Kendrick Lamar. One of the West Coast legend's latest protégés is rapper-singer Anderson .Paak.

The Oxnard, California representative debuted his new song "Bubblin" on Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1. Zowe also questioned Paak about working on his next project with Dre.

"He’s got a whole lot of trust in me. He lets me just run free. He told me, 'Just do your thing. I would love to be a part of it.' He told me, 'Do I have to be part of it? No, but I really want to be,'" said Paak. "I was like, 'You're definitely going to be a part of this, bro.' And we’ve just been going back and forth with this music for over two years now and just getting the right album that we really feel proud of."

The 2016 XXL Freshman Class member continued, "He's been very instrumental to taking it to the next level. That's the whole point when you’re working with a really good producer, you let them produce. It's dope, we got a lot of mutual respect for each other."

Dr. Dre is helping the ascending star by producing melodies and coming up with ideas for videos. Besides the visuals for "Bubblin," Anderson .Paak already has at least one other vid filmed.

Paak's critically acclaimed discography currently consists of the LPs Venice and Malibu. He also joined with Knxwledge to release Yes Lawd! under the group name NxWorries. In addition, Dre recruited the vocalist/instrumentalist to contribute to several tracks on 2015's Compton.
