R&B and rap sensation Anderson .Paak gave Coachella fans a fun-filled performance yesterday during the kick off the festival's second week. The singer literally lit up the stage with pyrotechnics including flames and fireworks while reportedly performing much of his recently released Ventura record. A surprise appearance came from fellow R&B singer Brandy who made her Coachella debut by performing alongside .Paak who featured the Moesha actress on Ventura on their collaboration "Jet Black."

.Paak also delivered a performance of his Grammy-winning single "Bubblin'," but if you recall, when he took home the award just a few months ago for Best Rap Performance, he actually tied with "King's Dead" from the Black Panther soundtrack by Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Future, and James Black. During his Coachella performance, .Paak played Lamar saying "miss me with that bullsh*t" at the beginning of "King's Dead" before Jay Rock hit the stage.

.Paak also paid tribute to slain rapper Nipsey Hussle by shouting out his love for him while closing out his set with a cover of Mac Miller's "Dang!" In an emotional end to his performance, .Paak displayed a picture of himself and Miller on the screen onstage where the two friends were photogaphed as they laughed together.
