The resurgence of West Coast hip-hop in recent times has seen a new breed of artists such as Kendrick Lamar enjoying critical acclaim and commercial success. The resurged interest in the genre has assisted in movies like ‘Straight Out Of Compton’– the NWA biopic, top the cinema box office. One of the biggest names in the genre is the legendary Compton rapper and producer DJ Quik, who will forever be identified with the West Coast for creating an instantly recognisable sound that fuses funk, R&B, soul and everything in between. Such is Quik’s influence; LA Weekly named him the Number 1 West Coast producer in the history of hip-hop ahead of Dr. Dre, DJ Muggs and The Alchemist. With eight albums to his name, production work with a who’s who of R&B and Hip-Hop including 2Pac, Toni Tony Tone, Jay Z, Snoop and Dr. Dre, and over 100 million sound scanned recordings, DJ Quik stands as one of hip-hop’s most consistent artists, producers and musicians.
