On Death Row

“Death Row was fun when the money was being spent but it wasn’t fun when N*ggas started to get violent and fight, tear up the studio, and come running through there with guns.”

On the Young Homie Kendrick Lamar

“I knew Kendrick Lamar was going to be a beast; I didn’t know that he was going to take over the whole game.”

In this exclusive video interview, Dj Quik calls out a few people, describes  Suge Knight fight, recalls his most iconic moments, and his work with the “youngsters” Kendrick Lamar, Problem, and Dom Kennedy.

      Quick is great but you are pushing it.

    • Jeffrey Wilson

      Rick Rubin is greatest producer ever. He can do all types of music. From slayer and slipknot, to legends like Beastie boys and Run DMC. But I do think Quik is better than Dre.

  • Quik is a living legend and personal favorite. he slept on on the mike and the boards, but he gets his paper

  • I gotta say my fav Quik moment is the way he decimated his Loyal to the Game verse, shit was TOO cold.
