From Sea To Shining Sea, Anderson .Paak Never Stops ‘Til It’s Over

It’s not even March, and Anderson .Paak is already having the kind of year you only dream of. He won a Grammy for best rap performance for his song “Bubblin.” He has Ventura, a new album executive produced by Dr. Dre, due out April 12, with a tour promoting it featuring support from Thundercat, Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, Mac DeMarco and Jessie Reyez. He just wrapped a sold-out North American tour and is set to embark on a three-week European jaunt. MAGNET photographer Wes Orshoski caught up with the magnificent Anderson at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom, and that’s when things got trippy.
