If you've never listened to DJ Quik before, be prepared to be amazed by his production skill. Quik is very similar to Dr. Dre in that he is an outstanding producer and doesn't hurt the songs by his rapping. His music is very easy to listen to as his beats immediately attrack your attention. They are so smooth and feed off of his influence from p-funk.
"Tonight" is the type of song Quik is famous for by being able to make an old school funk rhythm sound futuristic and is unbelievably smooth. "Born and Raised in Compton" Quik scratches through the record in a song that is reminiscent of N.W.A. "The Bombudd" was Quik's first showing of his ability to mix different styles of music, using a reggae beat. This works very well as he has used it on many of his CD's since. "Quik is the Name" is another song where he shows off that he's not just a great producer, but a great DJ, mixing music together. "Loked Out Hood" is one of the most enjoyable songs Quik has ever made and Quik shows off his rapping to the fullest on this song as he takes you through his hood on this song. "Quik's Groove" have become one of my favorite reasons for getting his albums as he can make great beats without rapping that you can just groove to. After listening to this everyone should see Quik as one of the most talented producers ever in rap. In "I Got That Feelin'" Quik shows all the youngsters how to talk their game to women. It has one of the most memorable hooks I've ever heard with a woman singing and Quik breaking it up with his mixing skills. Classic.
DJ Quik is becoming more of a household name with his production on "Addictive" by Truth Hurts, however it's on his albums where Quik has really gained his loyal fans because he never puts anything out that disappoints. This album is worth getting for anyone who wants to see production at its finest.

DJ Quik is one of the many geniuses in the history of hip-hop. He is not a common musician. He is an excellent producer and an amazing rapper as well. He also does some impressive scratching with funky summertime music. All California rap fans know what I mean here. Quik's debut is actually somewhat reminiscent of some previous Compton releases, such as NWA's Straight Out Of Compton, and The D.O.C.'s No One Can Do It Better, plus some other releases that resemble the aforementioned. The music is originally innovated and well polished. Quik has completed some daring work as well, such as the Penthouse Players Clique album. Here, Quik worked with Eazy-E and a group he had come up with. This album was not edited and totally freely recorded and spoke. Quik was not afraid to release it, and it was an instant underground classic.
The highlights on this album include the nicely bumping "Sweet Black Ladies", which has a bouncy guitar-laced beat and Quik putting in a great performance. The album's hugest single, "Tonight" is one of rap's greatest classics. Though BET and MTV didn't play it, the video with a laid-back party mood still was a big hit. The song made it on the top ten on the Jukebox. Quik's introduction to the world, "Born And Raised In Compton" came out in late 1990 and was an instant classic. The little party loop is unforgettable. On "Deep", Quik creates a hardcore horn-laced beat and joins himself with Second II None, his proteges. On "Bomb Bud", Quik makes an experiment with Reggae-tinged keyboards and a Jamaican style, which works wonderfully. "Quik Is The Name" is one of Quik's hits, and is extremely fast-paced with Quik tearing it up.

This is one of the coldest albums of 1991. When Quik released "Born & Rasied In Compton" in Dec. '90, everybody was bumping that song. Then he came with "Tonite" and he blew everyone away with it. Even though BET didn't play any of Quik's videos until '98 (the only played Hand & Hand, etc.), the video for "Tonite" was in the top ten on the then Juke Box (now, "The Box") for several months. That video was the bomb. But he didn't stop there, he dropped "Quik Is The Name" video sporting a "2nd II None"-logo Swap Meet black baseball cap and Playa Hamm of PPC, 2nd II None, and AMG made cameos in this video. It's the bomb. Anyway, this entire album is tight and you'll never stop playing it. His scratching on this album is unbelievable. He's the tightest West Coast producer ever, not Dr. Dre. If you beg to differ, buy this album and you'll be amazed.

If DJ Quik's "Quik is the Name" isn't on your top 10 list of rap CD's, you gotta problem This CD is on my top 10 list and "Tonight" is a classic. This is of the same caliber of my other "Top 10's" such as "License to Ill" by the Beastie Boys, "Diary" by Scarface, and "Born to Mack" by Too Short. The unique thing about Quik is that his beats and grooves are highly influenced by Roger and Zapp Troutman. He is also very original and produces most of his ish, which is more than I can say for most rappers. DJ Quik still tears it up in his latest release "Trouble," but "Quik is the Name" is definitly a must have. Quik has the winning formula here.
