Without a doubt, Anderson .Paak is the new “it” guy of that place where R&B and hip-hop overlap. It sort of happened overnight, and we can kind of credit Dr. Dre, who gave .Paak permission to leave his fingerprints all over Dre’s long-awaited return to music, 2015’s Compton.

Miguel: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

[youtube]http://youtu.be/n7w0-KgZMdY[/youtube]

Miguel turned up in the NPR Music offices early one morning accompanied by just his guitarist. Miguel went big on small gestures — ingratiating ad libs and voice control that kept the songs close to his chest but emotive enough to translate to the back of the room.
