.Paak sat down for an interview with CBS host Anthony Mason recently, where he described his Oxnard, California upbringing. “My pops, you know, battled with drug abuse,” he said. “There was domestic abuse with my mom, and I saw a lot of craziness. Then he went off to jail. I never got to really develop a relationship with him before he passed away.” Asked how he responded to that as a younger man, .Paak said that he made a point to “put everything into music.”
This tour hones back in on his roots creating a soulful expression and strong connection with his audience.
