In 1991 the west coast gangsta rap scene was introduced to DJ Quik. Quik became a main player in west coast rap and hip hop. At 20 years old his debut album was very successful and was the start of a west coast legend.
Working with almost everybody in the music field DJ Quik has, with help from a solid growing fan base, made his mark not only in west coast music history but in the music industry itself.
His production skills and mic skills make him an all around artist that can do it all.
Being from Compton he grew up along side greats in the rap game like Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, MC Eiht, and Above the Law. He has worked with icon rapper Tupac Shakur, and other rappers Xzibit, Kurupt, Truth Hurts, Eight Ball & MJG, Rakim all heavy weights. He works with today’s hit makers too like Ludacris and Chingy and others. He has proven his skills are ever lasting and he stays on top of the pack.
I had a chance to talk to DJ Quik and I have to say he is one of the most articulate rap artist I have had the pleasure to speak with. Just talking to him you know you are speaking to someone who is intelligent and has his priorities all in order.
Quik gives a lil history and a lil insight of things to come. This was truly an enjoyment to do. Even I might have had a ‘twisted’ view of this man until I had this opportunity to speak to him. Sometimes the image we have is not the reality. And I can honestly tell you that in reality DJ Quik is a intelligent well thought out and a well rounded individual. Check this out and watch for his album in the first quarter of 2005. We will keep you up on when it drops.--Enjoy
