DJ Quik Pitches In On A Rolling Skate Party In This “Fonky” DJ Set (Video)
Before he was rapping and producing, DJ Quik was a top mixmaster from Compton, California. In the nearly 30 years since getting career launched, Heads have become well acquainted with the smooth (sometimes belligerent) raps from David Blake, and his funky grooves behind the boards. What not all get access to are the DJ sets.
Boiler Room and Ray Ban change that, with a newly-released video of the onetime Profile Records star getting behind the wheels for a little Southern California rollerskating jam. Filmed on August 20, Q-U-I-K ‘s crates favor the sounds of MC Breed, Eric B. & Rakim, Tony! Toni! Toné!, EPMD, N.W.A., Tupac, and even some Suga Free. The vet plays the types of music he likes to hear in a cool setting, presumably similar to some of his first paid gigs.
