DJ Quik Makes A New Style Of Beats With Bishop Lamont On The Mic (Video)
Just over six months after DJ Quik threatened to hang up his production talents following two stolen MPCs, the Compton veteran is back in the saddle. “Trapped On The Track” perhaps explains why the longtime Profile Records star who worked closely with 2Pac, Eazy-E, and Hi-C is unable to fully let go. However, Quik features a sparse visual alongside former Dr. Dre protege Bishop Lamont with a Bounce track.
Notably, the record features David Blake, which is Quik’s government name. In the mid-’90s, during some label woes with Profile, Quik’s then manager Suge Knight signed David Blake to Death Row Records, to coax Profile into bettering their terms. Old Row rosters include the Compton DJ/producer/MC on their roster, while he was in the studio with ‘Pac, Snoop Dogg, and Danny Boy.
As Quik’s gone from sampling to galactic Funk to Trap and back, how do you feel about this style?
