Anderson .Paak – L A Lakers Freestyle (Video)
Anderson .Paak stopped by the Power 106 studio to deliver a two-minute freestyle over Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s 1995 cut “Get Money.”
The West Coast rapper kicked things off by saluting the late Biggie Smalls, and then proceeded to rap about everything from his childhood dreams to his sexual conquests to his career wins.
“I was made to beat the odds, something outta nothin’/You afraid to take a loss, I lost my older brother, sister, father, auntie, cousin/I got nothin’ left but y’all,” he spits. “[…] I rep the ‘Nard, even when you never knew it with my first release party, until n****s came through it/First I got a lawyer, moved my mom to Georgia, got my sister a Honda, talk about spoiled/If I can’t get radio, I’m snatching up the products/Apple, Google, Amazon, Spota.”
.Paak spoke about the project’s impressive guest features, including Pusha-T, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg.
“Everybody that I wanted to be on the album, they came through. It was no Hollywood, label stuff,” he said. “If they didn’t show up to the studio, they sent it right in and they was like, ‘I got you.'”
