AK Monthly Recap: December 2018

And just like that, 2018 is over. December was a nice way to end it, though.

(Though I did get one urgent press request on December 24 with a due date of D...

With Dr. Dre behind him, Anderson .Paak is feeling epic

NEW YORK (AP) — Getting Dr. Dre to produce his entire album had Anderson .Paak feeling like “the prodigal son,” as he put it, since it’s rare that you’ll find Dre overseeing an entire music project these days. “To see him so inspired and genuinely having fun with a project is really dope, because I […]
