It's been a hell of a year for California vocalist Anderson .Paak. With two stellar albums at his back (since dropping his old moniker Breezy Lovejoy) and an album with producer Knxwledge as Nxworries on the way, .Paak is quickly becoming a household name. But all the hype is worth nothing if it can't be backed up by live performance.

Thankfully, .Paak is as much of a beast onstage as he is in the studio, and the next nine clips are proof. From Jimmy Kimmel to SXSW, from France to Germany, .Paak shows his talent both behind the mic and as a multi-instrumentalist. We scoured the internet for the artist's best live sets from 2014's Venice to the recent Malibu, and the results speak for themselves.
