Prior to the release of his break-out album Malibu, .Paak was heavily featured on Dre’s 2015 album Compton, which coincided with the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton. After the release of Malibu, the artist announced that he signed to Dre’s label Aftermath Entertainment, which will release Oxnard.
In addition to his work with .Paak, Dre has served as a mentor to fellow Compton native Kendrick Lamar, who is also signed to Aftermath Entertainment. Dre served as an executive producer for every solo album release made by Lamar since 2012’s Good Kid/M.A.A.D City.
