After working on Detox for more than a decade, Dr. Dre finally cancelled the long-gestating project in 2015 and released Compton. Apart from hearing what Dre had been up for all these years, the album featured a host of up-and-coming artists vying to become the next big thing discovered by the producer who introduced the world to Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, and Kendrick Lamar. In the months since the release of Compton, it has become clear that the next name on that list is Anderson Paak. The 30-year-old polymath can sing, rap, produce, and play drums, and he does all of those on his masterful second albumMalibu, bringing old school R&B and soul to contemporary hip-hop in the way that Lamar did with To Pimp a Butterfly. But while Lamar’s album is built for Black Lives Matter rallies, Paak’s is intended for bedrooms, beach parties, and barbeques. Anderson Paak performs with The Free Nationals at 8 p.m. at the Fillmore, 8656 Colesville Road, Silver Spring. $20. (301) 960-9999. fillmoresilverspring.com. (Chris Kelly)
