As .Paak continues making his way up the California coast, he's sharp on issues from immigration to criminal justice protests within the NFL on the lead single. "We couldn't stand to see our children shot dead in the streets, but when I finally took a knee them crackers took me out the league" he continues. The song which name checks Lebron James is a blistering start to his next era, coming only five months after his third studio album Oxnard was released. Ventura is due out on April 12th, and features a deep list of features.
