Times Infinity was executive produced by early supporter Russell Simmons, co-produced by longtime collaborator Kush Mody, with additional production by Anderson.Paak and contributions from 21 Pilots drummer Josh Dun. Watsky’s early career as a poet has impacted everything he’s done since. Whether emotionally raw or subversively comedic, lyrically gymnastic or narrative-based, the emphasis has always been on the words. A relentless stream of mixtapes and videos has built Watsky’s fan base, racked up over 250 million total YouTube views, and opened the door for international headlining tours and festival appearances, including Van’s Warped Tour, Outside Lands, Bumbershoot, Soundset and Wireless.
After ”Suede”, a song he recorded with beatmaker Knxwledge under the name NxWorries, caught Dr. Dre’s ear, .Paak became a significant part of Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre, making six appearances on the album. Not surprisingly, those songs combined for .Paak’s big break, and now, eight years after deciding he wanted to make music his livelihood, he’s released his best project yet, an affecting album that masterfully marries hip-hop, R&B, and soul.
