Anderson .Paak's media tour in support of his highly anticipated Oxnard album is well underway. The California native stopped by The Angie Martinez Show on Tuesday to discuss a multitude of topics surrounding his upcoming project and even touched on how some of the features came about.
At the tail end of the discussion, Martinez brought up the fact that his "Blessings" collaborator Chance the Rapper was noticeably missing from the effort's high-profile track list. "He wasn't on this, but we got a bunch of stuff that we've worked on. It might be on his next stuff. We'll see what happens," Paak teased.
The Malibu artist's follow-up LP is definitely a star-studded affair, featuring the likes of West Coast legend Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Pusha T, Q-Tip, Snoop Dogg and many more. Anderson detailed what went into having the Dreamville frontman land on "Trippy."
"Him and Dre were working and I was opening up for him on his last tour. He was like, 'I got to get on there.' I was like, 'Let me take my little verse off there,'" Paak jokingly explained. "It was unfinished, so I needed something. He was in town when I was working on it and I was wrapping it up. I was like, 'If you around, pull up.' And he pulled right up."
Watch the interview in full below. Oxnard is slated to release Nov. 16.
