The Oxnard, Calif. native was surrounded by his band as he took center stage on the cool-hued set to perform the R&B track — which originally features J. Cole — telling a story of lasting love.
“You and I will always meet somewhere in between/ Sweet Trippy, I’m yours for the gettin’/ Talkin’ foolish at the moon, I was gone, 1800, sippin’/ I can’t get rid of you, all the places that I used to go and kick it/ All this weight that I’m liftin’, trippy,” .Paak sang.
Back on the couch with Fallon, the father said he couldn’t make it to the Grammys ceremony on Feb. 10 because his son, Soul, had a “stuffy nose.” “He’s like our only boy, our oldest boy, and every little thing that happens we’re like ‘okay, straight to emergency,’” .Paak joked. He did manage to take an adorable photo while holding his Grammy with Soul.
The 33-year-old also spoke about working with Dr. Dre, and how he buts heads with the legendary producer at times. “Both of us are perfectionists so it’s really frustrating sometimes,” he said. “His head is bigger than mine, too, so it’s just like, he’s bigger so it’s like ‘alright Dre, sounds good to me.’”
