Anderson .Paak at Hype Hotel
loading...

Soul/funk/rap hybrid Anderson .Paak was one of the artists we were most excited to see at SXSW. I caught him twice, including a set for a packed house at the massive Hype Hotel on Friday night, and he more than lived up. Like I've said before, Anderson sings, raps and drums, and he's genuinely great at all three of those things. He's got an ace band, including a guitarist, a bassist and a DJ, and they're not just impressive on a technical level, they're genuinely fun too. The cheering crowd on Friday night would probably agree. Pictures from that show are in this post.

Meanwhile, Anderson, who also caught up with Nardwuar at SXSW, appears on "Dapper" on Domo Genesis' debut LP Genesis, which is out today. Check out the video for that song, which also stars Tyler the Creator and other Odd Future members, and more pictures, below...
