Quiks biggest mainstream record is Dollars and Sense, that is what everyone knows quik for.  Even peeps who don't listen to rap know that one.

thats true. dollaz an sense is famous. i listen to some dance tracks. a guy sampled it.

IMO the biggest mainstream record was addictive and bitch betta have my money

I don't live for the man, but I do study him so I can hope my pimp hands one day become as strong as his. When i first started listening to him, my hands were only strong enough to crush a beetle.  Now that i've studied him for 15 years, my hands are strong enough to crush a dog.

quik as a solo or featuring artist or produced?

produced prolly the truth hurts track, featuring i'd day lets get down but solo track it's a tough one, maybe something quite early like dollaz and sense or tonite...

I was too young to remember or know Safe + Sound or anything before that

the songs I remember hearing most on the radio were "Hand In Hand" and "Pitch In On a Party"

Dollars and Sense was on the MWTC OST.  Thats how I got into quik.  That is when Deathrow was straight running the rap game.  I dunno if it got played on the radio or in clubs much back then, but I would definately bet that it got quik more exposure than any other song he has ever done.

Yeah I was referring to DJ Quik as a solo artist.

And "Dollaz + Sense" was a big record, but I dont' think it was anywhere close to his biggest mainstream record. In fact, I only remember hearing it on the radio a few times throughout my entire life :(

I donno....I'd say "Tonite" because it came out when he was on the cover of the Source....and because that's the only Quik song I've heard on radio in Tallahassee FL since I've been out here.

Dollaz and sense prolly is up there too. For songs he's produced...shit it's a grip, Addictive, Heartz of men, and definitely Let's get down.

I'd say Tonite, I still hear it on the radio from time to time now, and everyone knows that song.  But I remember "Hand In Hand" was pretty popular back when Rhythm-al-ism came out, that's the first Quik song I ever heard, that's how I got into him.  But they used to play "Down Down Down" and "You'z A Ganxta" on the radio too back in those days.

I saw him get X'd on The Jamie Kennedy Experiment show once!!! And that was on Danish TV, I was shocked as a mutha ;D


About the question in the question: Quik Is The Name is, to the furthest extend of my knowledge, Quik's biggest record ever. Think Way 2 Fonky did pretty well sales-wise too. But most of his records sold at least 500,000 copies I read 8)
