Thursday, April 21st, 2011, prolific multi-platinum producer and recording artist, DJ Quik, returns to the illustrious Ruby Skye the day after the release of his eagerly awaited 8th studio album, “the Book of David,” available on 4-20.
The album partially takes its name from Quik’s government name, David Blake. According to DubbCNN.com, Quik’s longtime collaborator, Suga Free, will be featured on the upcoming album.
Since the Platinum selling Quik is the Name hit stores in 1991, DJ Quik has carved a well defined and respected niche in the rap game. With four gold and platinum albums and production work with 2Pac, Talib Kweli, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Janet Jackson, Tony, Toni, Tone and Dr. Dre to his credit, DJ Quik stands as one of hip-hop's most consistent artists and musicians.
With a slew of Billboard Awards under his belt, this Compton, California native set the bar high for street oriented hip-hop, raising the standard with well crafted production and dense musicianship. His lyrics are always honest and straightforward and his beats stay dense and funky.
Considering his conspicuous beginnings as a gangster rapper, Quik eventually transformed himself into a funk driven band leader and front man. Because of this, he has an unusually varied fanbase, from die-hard roughneck rap devotees to the most erudite backpackers and everything in-between.
