NXWOrries EP Dropping Friday, Here Is A Taste


I was writing about Paak to click in 2016 earlier, and may I just note that NxWOrries have been high on my list for 2016 since I saw the duo in concert last September. Paak, the great utility player is all over Compton, and the band’s first single, “Suede” was a masterstroke. Here is another song off the EP, “Link Up”. A little out there for my tastes, but still a solidly strange take on modern r&b. Much better than neo-soul that’s for sure. Grade: B.

So who are these guys? Here is their PR release and below that the track.

NxWorries (pronounced No Worries), the collaborative project between R&B vocalist Anderson .Paak and producer Knxwledge is proud to announce the release of the Link Up & Suede EP due out December 4th via Stones Throw. To celebrate, the duo is sharing “Link Up”, a new single which debuted earlier today on Beats 1 as Zane Lowe’s ‘World Record’.

About NxWorries:

A breakout performance on Dr. Dre’s Compton catapulted Anderson .Paak to mainstream relevance; however, that journey actually began when NxWorries’ single “Suede” caught fire last Spring and reached the ears of Dre. Now, “Suede” is being officially released alongside new single “Link Up”, a Knxwledge remake of .Paak’s “Droogs”, and bonus beats.

Anderson .Paak went on to record eight tracks with Dre prompting The FADER to declare him, “the L.A. savant all over Dr. Dre’s new album” but his own credits go beyond vocalist – he’s a songwriter, drummer, an incredible live performer and producer.

Knxwledge (“knowledge”) is a prolific hip-hop beat maker from Los Angeles whose record Hud Dreems came out this year. His production credits include tracks for Joey Badass and Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly (2015).

NxWorries recently completed a national tour with Earl Sweatshirt and are putting the finishing touches on their full-length album for Stones Throw Records, set for release in 2016.
