Yall need to stop !! The man been in the game 15+ and he still one of the best.Yeah the beat is'nt so complex or what you used to hearing from him ,but when you go out to the club outside of the west coast I'm pretty sure this will be in rotation.Plus it's him and G how long you been waiting for this.Work with that!! Let quik get that money he ain't gone crossova. ;)

Thing is....it's one thing to take a formula of what's been hot on radio, and put your own twist to it to where people are like damm, that is sick...but when you have talent, especially at Quik's level, you should never aim to make a beat that sounds exactly like what's been done, without innovating it at all.

It's like this....yeah, "Laffy Taffy" and "Lean wit it" were very simple, and wack in many people's eyes, but many producers since then took those elements and ended up making dope beats with that same structure...so we got songs like "You should be my girl" and "She likes that" from Jazze Phe. Or how "Wait" and "Vans" have just drums..but other producers took that formula and made beats like Rhymefest "Stick" and Ray Ray "Tell em what they wanna hear" which built off of that.

So with Quik doin this track...he didn't do anything to change up the game, or help it evolve...so the beat just blends in with everything that's already been done. Not only that...but for all of us sayin "well he wants to make a nationwide hit" that makes plenty sense...but it's two major things we aren't thinkin bout....number one, this song isn't nearly as catchy as most of the down south songs that blow up...and two, it's never about how dope the song is, but how much it gets pushed. If they pushed "Black Mercedez" hard as hell, and pushed this song just as hard, people would like Black Mercedez just because it's a much stronger song, even though this one seems as if it'll appeal to more people.

Overall....this is like a 15 point, 2 assist, 3 rebound game from Jordan, Kobe, or Magic....that's decent for a role player, and very good for a bench player....but definitely not for a superstar.

If you listen to AMG's new tracks from 2005/2006, he changed his voice.

everyone needs to relax


it's obvious that this track is intentional, he did that Southern accent intentionally

I'm sure this isn't his new picked up style, take it for what it's worth and stop worrying about it

I think, quik lost his own style. he wants to make money. everbody know that quik didn't sell well with his old albums

Thats one thing, he is trying to make money at this stage of his career and i don't blame him at all for that. Personally tho i don't have to buy it either tho. It reminds me of e-40 i used to lie hi but then he tried making money and he did but now i don't like him anymore.

haha what a bunch of retards

so you know for a fact he put out this track to get with the in crowd and make more money?

Exactly.

DJ Quik has made southern tracks before, check out his work with 8 ball and MJG, that shit was hot. This way way way below Quik standards and sounds liek everything else out there, just mediocre.

This song is just OK, nothing special.

Alright...  The beat is pretty boring other than the loud booms, which I thought was kinda hot.  The vocals on it are terrible, Quik and AMG don't even sound recognizable.  I'm sure they just did this as a single to make money, or even as a joke to make fun of the South shit, but overall the song is decent.  I like the hook, and it bangs, but this is definitely not what I want from a new Quik album.

Yeah I'm beginning to think the same shit. Quik is waaaaaay more talented than this. He just showing that he's not just a 1 demensional artist. He can flip it, splash it with a Quik twist and rip it...Dude is nice...I'm still supportin dude...whatever it is...the shit does knock tho'...WestUp!!

Quik sounds drunk as hell.  Almost like Game sounds when he did Start From Scratch.

THIS IS NOT THE SONG I HEARD WHEN I MADE THAT THREAD. QUIK HAD A COMPLETELY DIFFRENT SONG ON POWER.

this shit is awful. west coast rappers suckin the dicks is wack needs to fuck stop.  we already had enough with too short & e-40. we dont need a guy like QUIK doing this shit. i'm dissapointed in this garbage. Quik hasn't been the same since 2000. his best beats were 97-00. he needs to take it back to those days cuz those beats still bang hard today.

Seriously,is this kind of beat authorised? ...it should be not.
He tried something new here so i can't hate but  this ain't my for me.

Well actually it's more about the hook that i complain about...the beat is what it is, with a greater hook the track could be decent.

missing a bassline?  that's about all it has.  And to the other dude, I don't think Short should get lumped into the "Sucking the south's cock" category.  He went to Atlanta way before anyone gave a fuck about that scene.

Nah, all it has is a 808.  It don't have that Robert Bacon, G-one, Quik type bass guitar bassline.  You know, when you hear it you say, "Thats a Quik beat" That's all this beat is missing.

it's not as bad as you're all making it out too be. atleast it's a clean beat and not the sloppy usual south shit.
