Anderson .Paak is currently sitting on a lot of unreleased music, but having a stash of ready-to-go records tends to come in handy whenever a trusted collaborator or respected brand reaches out about working together.
In a recent interview on Hot 97, the Oxnard, California native revealed that whenever his phone rings for a feature, all he has to do is hit send.
"When Mac [Miller] hit me up, he was asking me if I had anything for [his] album," .Paak said, "and I already had ["Dang!"] with the hook and the idea. And I just dished that off to him. I love doing that with artists. I just did that recently with Busta and different artists. I just have so many songs."

We talk to the Surf Gang artist about microdosing alternative music in his raps.
Another one of those songs is "'Til It's Over," which premiered in March during Apple's HomePod campaign. As it turns out, the record is almost half-a-decade old.
"You know the Apple thing ["'Til It's Over"], working with Spike Jones and FKA Twigs, that was huge, that was another song that was four years old that I just had in the tuck," .Paak added.
