Quik, AMG Talk New Group ‘The Fixxers,’ Debut New Material

Veteran

Compton, CA rappers Quik (formerly known as DJ Quik) and AMG recently debuted

material from their new group, The Fixxers. The

Fixxers performed material from their upcoming debut album, The Midnight Life

during a performance Sunday (Mar. 4) at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip

in Hollywood.The

performance was one in a series of West coast dates that Quik has embarked upon

since being released from prison. Quik served a five-month stint in jail for violating

the terms of his probation, surrounding the assault of his sister.

In June 2006, Quik surrendered to authorities for violating the terms of his probation

for an incident in 2003, in which the rapper/producer, born David Blake, pulled

a gun on his sister and another man during a heated argument. Quik

was originally sentenced to 45 days in jail on the weekends after he pleaded guilty

to the assault, but he never served the time. The

result was a probation violation, causing Quik’s jail time to be increased to

150 consecutive days behind bars. "The

record is sick,” Quik told AllHipHop.com after the performance. "When

I first got out of jail, I felt as though my career was over, I was all broke

and hungry and sh**, but my accountant opened up my eyes and said that my career

is just now beginning.”According

to Quik, The Fixxers are halfway through recording The Midnight Life and

are looking to land some big name talent to support the project, which is being

produced entirely by Quik and AMG. "There

are no collabos on the album as of yet," AMG told AllHipHop.com. "We

are looking to work with Young Joc and Young Jeezy. We also are putting YoYo back

on the map by doing a record with her as well."The

Fixxers’ first single "Can You Werk With That" recently hit the net

and various radio stations. According

to Quik, who recently dropped the "DJ" from his rap name, the album

will feature the quality production he is usually associated with.In

addition to his album with The Fixxers, Quik has produced records for artists

like Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Snoop Dogg, 2Pac, Talib Kweli, Ludacris,

Jay-Z and others.“With

our new record, we are doing all the work ourselves," Quik said. "Its

definitely going to be hot, because we are both perfectionist, and with whatever

we do, it has to be nothing but the best. I make everything I do absolute and

not relative.” The

Midnight Life is slated to hit stores this summer.
