A TAV Essential Listening Album.

Malibu is the second studio album by American rapper and singer-songwriter Anderson Paak.

After dropping his debut album Venice in 2014 and then being featured on six tracks on Dr. Dre's Compton album in 2015, his star and profile rose. He has toured with Jhene Aiko, Tokimonsta, and others.

Malibu is the follow-up to Venice and features Schoolboy Q, The Game, BJ The Chicago Kid, and more.

The album has been described as Paak's potential commercial breakthrough, following his prominent role on Dr. Dre's album Compton (2015), where he featured on six songs. One song in particular, "Animals," which was co-produced by Dre and DJ Premier, was recorded for Malibu, before Dre decided to have the track featured on Compton.

Pitchfork Media's Marcus J. Moore awarded the album with a Best New Music rating, drawing comparisons between Paak and Kendrick Lamar, writing that "much like Kendrick Lamar, .Paak skillfully depicts his surroundings while remaining in the foreground" and that ".Paak's quicksilver flow on Your Prime feels teleported in directly from To Pimp a Butterfly as the music flows expansively from creamy soul harmonies to trap cadences." - Wiki

 "Malibu is an expansive opus that flows in multiple directions like a classic '70s double album." - Pitchfork
