DJ Quik Sentenced To 5 Months In Prison

Rapper/producer DJ

Quik has begun a five-month stint in jail for assaulting his sister.

The rapper (born

David Marvin Blake) surrendered in Fontana Superior Court last week to begin

his sentence.

The incident occurred

in 2003 when Blake pulled a gun on his sister during a family argument, according

to police reports.

The rapper was

ordered last year to spend 45 days in jail on weekends after pleading guilty

to the assault, but never served his time, sources told AllHipHop.com.

The avoidance resulted

in a violation of Blake’s probation, causing Judge Keith Davis to increase Blake’s

jail time Thursday (June 22) to increase the beatmaker’s time behind bars to

150 consecutive days and ordering him to begin serving his time immediately.

DJ Quik is currently

enjoying success as a featured guest on the west coast remix to Chamillionaire’s

#1 hit, "Ridin’ Dirty."

The rapper/producer

also recently released Greatest Hits Live at the House of Blues, a 20-track

set recorded live in February 2006.

The album features

a 12-piece band and boasts guest appearances from Chingy, Nate Dogg, B-Real

and others.
