Anderson Paak's first experience as a musician came as a teenage drummer in a church band. As an adult, he helped manage a marijuana farm while working on his debut album, but when he lost his pot job, recording costs put him in deep debt. Shafiq Husayn of Sa-Ra hired him as an assistant, and with access to the Sa-Ra studio, Paak finished his debut album. O.B.E., Vol. 1 landed in 2012 as a Breezy Lovejoy album, and he soon hit the road as drummer for American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart. His 2013 all-covers EP, Cover Art, arrived as the first Anderson Paak release, and a year later he issued Venice. In 2015, he was prominently featured on Dr. Dre's Compton. ~ David Jeffries
