DJ Quik (born David Martin Blake on January 18, 1970) is a West Coast rapper and record producer from Compton, California. He was raised at 436 West Spruce Street in Compton, California. As a teen he took up an affiliation with the Tree Top Piru Bloods, hence why his name is spelled Quik with the C conspicuously missing.

    Had my Quik > DRE phase, but at the end of the day for sheer impact on the form and the *level* of albums - Quik has not produced an album better than The Chronic or Doggystyle, and artists Dre backs changed the game as well (Snoop, Em, 50, Kendrick, the list goes on) whereas Quik's crew never went beyond niche (and I love Suga Free). Fairness to dude though, he's put out great to solid album after album, Dre has certainly been more conservative.

    With all that said, I don't think The Midnight Life is so bad it's shocking! Anyway, Quik's been putting out good albums for years so he can afford a dud. I will always remain a fan.

    LuxDel! I knew I couldn't be the only one. It's as if people are riding it to death because, frankly, it's cool to like Quik these days. I mean, just look at the reviews. There's nothing today's music critics love more than a story and good timing. (I think Quik's become a lot more outspoken yet press-savvy during the last few years). Quik's currently getting a lot of love and long-overdue acknowledgement, which is GREAT but not an excuse to label a mediocre album anything other than what it is.

    dont be nice v. Midnight Life is bad, so bad it's shocking. 2nd II None's 2014 album was a million times better.
