L.A. born crooner Anderson.Paak and TDE rapper Schoolboy Q put on a stellar performance of their joint  “Am I Wrong” from Paak’s highly acclaimed album Malibu on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. Veering from the original version, this rendition takes more of a  smooth Jazz approach to the track with the multi-talented Paak on both the vocals and drums.
