Although the fork were always down with Quik. Just got around to listening to that K.R.I.T too, hands down best mixtape of the year. Everyone who said so can pat themselves on the back.
with the BlaQKout release, rightfully so.
This is a good review to be honest, name-dropping Radiohead is my only gripe, but I understand the reasons for it, kind of.
Quiks work is undeniable, a joy to listen to, so effortlessly smooth and addicting.
Good publicity nonetheless.
You should bump that thread, maybe someone else will discover it through that. I think the general DiS public would really like that one.
Same as with The-Dream last year. I expected a good score but not BNM, just didn't think it'd cross over to most of the p4k audience. Hopefully it will. Better late than never.
Happy for the man, much deserved. Maybe now 19,487 more people will mediafire his album ;)
sometimes they get it right.
Listen to him go off on his own kin. Slice your heart out type stuff.
AND YOUR SON LOOKS LIKE A FUKKIN AL QUIDA

YOU GOT THE BOOT
AND NOW I'M CHIPPIN LIKE FRI-TO LAYS...
good innit? was not expecting it to be so good. it's good.
When's the full UK Release?
Flow For Sale and So Compton is pretty much gonna be on repeat all summer.
I wasn't to ripped on the singles that came out prior, but they sound so great in the context of the album, Luv Of My Life in particular has become on of my favorites, the warm organ tones sooth my soul.
Can we talk about how great Quik's taste in washed-up r&b singers is too? Jon B sounds great on here. The Quiks Groove is awesome, of course, dude needs to release an album of all his Quiks Grooves.
Had this on my headphones chilling in the sun the other day & it really comes into it's own. Great summer album and one of the best of 2011.
Please tell me you've heard the DJ Quik/Kurupt album BlaQKout from a couple years back?
Alongside Balance & Options and Safe & Sound. I should probably get on that
Then BlaQKout, then Safe & Sound.
Turn that up^
Somebody done kicked the extension cord out....
artist that I can confidently tell people to get their whole discography. And then even go beyond that and get all the stuff he did as a producer; Suga Free 'Street Gospel', Hi-C's solo stuff, 2pac 'All Eyez on Me' etc etc. Street Gospel in particular is top 50 material in my collection.
Its all good.
The first two records are two of my favourite gangsta rap records & Rhythm-al-ism is surely one of the most criminally underrated rap albums of the 1990s. Definitely going on a bit of a Quik binge now though, haven't really listened to him since Trauma came out.
I friggin' love these guys, the last minute is just him and Suga Free bouncing around to the beat, with their sexy manes. If you dont have Street Gospel, GET THAT pronto-like.
