Speaking with VIBE  early last month, the Grammy-winning star revealed Ventura was influenced by to OutKast and the late Notorious B.I.G. 

"It’s one of those crazy things where you need some chill stuff, something that’s soothing but also still got that bop to it," .Paak told the publication.

He continued, "I was able to do that with [Ventura] probably the most and at the same time, kind of an ode to Speakerboxxx/The Love Below and albums that really molded me, Life After Death and the era I come up in."

Ventura is now available on all streaming services
