Anderson .Paak has been working briskly to try and get his new album to the masses, and he’s been teasing some potentially exciting collaborations as well. Paak has previously claimed to be working on a masterpiece, he recently joined Sway on TRL to talk about a song that won’t be on his album.
The song, which doesn’t have a title, is apparently a collaboration between Paak, Compton rapper, Boogie, and Marshall Mathers, himself. When asked about the track, Paak says, “That track was hard, it was like a dance track. I don’t know what he’s going to do with it, I hope he uses it.”
It seems that Sway actually had a better idea of what might be done with the song than Paak did, and suggests that the song will be appearing on the soundtrack to the film Bodied, which is set to premiere sometime this year.
The film, which is executive produced by Eminem, is about a young white man who becomes a competitive battle rapper, after being immersed in the scene when trying to write his graduate thesis on the subject. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and won an Audience Choice award. Bodied will also feature roles by Charlamagne Tha God and Dumbfoundead. The movie will be distributed through YouTube Red sometime this year.
While Eminem and Paak is a bizarre thought to begin with, Eminem on a funky dance track sounds even weirder. But knowing those two, they should be able to pull it off easily.
