“I thought this was a more cultured, mature… So y’all like getting called bitches around here?”

We’ve seen Anderson .Paak step behind his drum set on plenty occasions, whether it be for a late-night performance or sets at Coachella or South by Southwest. But for his latest trick — a four-song set for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series — Andy sat behind the drums the whole time while performing softer versions of various Malibu cuts.

Backed by some of the members of The Free Nationals, the group performed “Come Down,” “Heart Don’t Stand A Chance,” “Put Me Thru” and “Suede” — a song by he and Knxwledge that caught the attention of Dr. Dre, which accelerated his ascension in the music world.
