Bottom line:

Damn. It's been about 2 years since I posted my last GIF review, but here you have it: Anderson .Paak's Malibu is THAT good it warranted my response. It's hard to pick GIFs for an album that's so congruous, but I just had to give it a shot. It's gonna be real difficult for me to not overplay this record because it's PERFECT for Spring and Summer. (Maybe we'll get a vinyl release by then? Please!?) 'Til then you can pick up a CD/digital copy. I highly recommend it. With Hip Hop Is Read back and plenty of great music available, 2016 is shaping up real nice... Stay tuned for more! ;)

Once again, I'd like to thank all the amazing HHIReaders who have contributed to the tip jar so far. Much appreciated! Like I said before, if you're feeling generous, please consider a contribution to Hip Hop Is Read. It's not tax-deductible, but if my work receives a nice amount of financial support, I can promise I'll keep doing this for years to come... Thank you!
