Quik was not clear exactly who he was angry with. The creator of Quik Is the Name has admitted he has taken shots at Beats co-founder Dr. Dre in the past. His 2000 track “U Ain’t Fresh” was a diss aimed at Dre. The two later settled their issues and worked together on “Put It On Me” off the Training Day soundtrack.

    Legend in the game. No music at all?

  • F.U.

    I’ve been saying this for years. DJ Quik is the best Rapper/Producer to ever do it! In my opinion he’s the best producer in hip hop and maybe music period. He plays instruments and just creates great music. I guess Dre feels some type of way about Quik after all these years. That Tupac tweet was about Dre lol. I guess Quik and Pac had a conversation during the All Eyes On Me sessions.

    • TheAfroRican

      Best west coast producer in my opinion. I have always liked his productions more than Dre’s. Heck, I put Quik and Battlecat over Dre.

      • F.U.

        What ever happened to Battlecat! He use to lace Snoop, Tha Eastsiders etc. I’m an East Coast cat but those West Coast beats used to go hard! I’m not on that DJ Mustard crap. His shit sound like the Bay a few years ago. I never liked that hyphy shit.

      • AlbertoRipRon

        Good question. Battlecat used to have tracks that had a nigga feeling fly in his whip while I cruised down streets.

      • TheAfroRican

        Word. Tracks like Kurupt “We Can Freak It” and Ras Kass “Marinate” stay on repeat.

      • TheAfroRican

        I think Battlecat still produce music. I know he is still Snoop’s tour DJ. Oh yeah, I also put Daz Dillinger over Dr. Dre.

    • Charles Austin

      He’s mad bcuz he know’s people put Quik over him on the west coast.I live in the Midwest and of course if you say Quik better then Dre people will think your on drugs.I like Dre but I just prefer Quik’s music any day of the week.I think back in the day Quik was making his music for certain people but he ain’t cool with them anymore not to mention 2nd to None so his music ain’t fun or fly like it use to be but it’s still better then 90 percent of what you hear on the radio.

    • Johnny Boy

      His music is actually on the app. He took it back later.

  • j_pullia

    It has to be personal. Why else would Dre leave off one of the greatest to ever do it? Quick is a WEST COAST LEGEND!

    • Ipullcards

      To much stuff

  • Reg Young

    But, I just pulled up the Beats App on my phone and DJ Quik’s music IS on there. Is he talking about new stuff?

    • stealth

      You didnt read the part at the bottom where he came back and said he was wrong.

      • Reg Young

        No, the bottom part was an update and was added after the original story ran. I was commenting on the original story.

  • Black people.

    As if Dre owns Beats.
    Jimmy does. He knows what music goes in there.

    Any rap beef in the past 15 years. It was only
    jimmy cashing in. 2Pac was not signed to Death Row
    first. Death Row entered a cooperation deal with
    Interscope to produce and manage 2Pac.
    Pac was the first rapper Interscope ever signed.
    And he is the reason why they became so huge.

  • baller187

    this peasnt cant touch the 300 bili man

    • Arrie Mental Woodard

    • The Black Fist
