12. On his all-covers EP ‘Cover Art,’ Paak covers only white artists.
"During the 1950's there were a slue of ‘white' artists and bands who made a pretty lucrative career out of remaking songs from ‘black’ 'blues and r&b acts'” Paak writes on his website. "Unfortunately the original writers hardly ever received credit and or were ever properly compensated for their songs.” He decided to deliver a similar process but in reverse homage. On it, he covers The Beatles, The White Stripes and Neil Young. Picture: Instagram
