NICE AS F*CK! : The Albums, 2016.
Malibu is for the California dreamers. For those who have made it over the hump and are now seeing brighter days. It's for all the little dreamers. And the ones who never gave a fuck. The products of the tube and the free lunch. For those who enjoy some of the old and some of the new, and that fine balance that exists between the two. It's for those who like Hennessy and record players; Teddy Pendergrass and Sammy Davis. And Rick James. And Ray Charles. Curtis Mayfield, Kool and the Gang, Prince; the vibes of DJ Quik. It's for those who like rhythm, and for those who find solace in the blues. For the old heads and the young bucks. For the parking lots, the roller rinks, and the kick backs. It's for those who have let it go and are over sitting back and talking about what could have been. It's the party and the soundtrack, brought to you by Mr. Anderson .Paak, so get up on the good foot and celebrate as he wants us to, and while we still can.
