Anderson Paak and Pusha T on the same track is not fair. #OXNARD— Jarry Benkins (@klond00) November 16, 2018
J Cole sounds SOOOO much better on beats not made by him. Might be time to work with outside producers next project. #Oxnard— January 29th (@KevCoke6) November 16, 2018
Just finished listening to #OXNARD. Masterful production. Soulful vibes. Vibrant lyricism. Excellent features. The middle portion of the album is definitely the strongest where I felt like the album opened and closed on a weaker note. Stellar performance all around. 9/10— Jade丨new year, new disaster (@blackgrlfly) November 15, 2018
Update on #Oxnard: .Paak may have written the classiest blow job song ever.— Kitty (@kitrichardsonuk) November 16, 2018
