DJ Quik – Under tha Influence

1. Tha proem…Good opening track.  Laidback beat, with a gangsta touch.  It features Talib Kweli, Shyheim, and Hi-C.  I would’ve liked to hear Quik on a verse, but still a good song.  3.5/5
2. Trouble…I love the production.  It’s a light beat, with a heavy hitting bassline.  Quik has 2 very tight verses.  4/5
3. Come 2nyte…Quik has a good flow and the production is nice, but the guitar gets a bit repetitive.  Truth Hurts provides a nice hook.  3.5/5
4. Put it on me…Typical Dre production.  Quik and Dre sound great trading verses.  Dre’s voice sounds quite different, but great.  Dope hook.  4/5
5. Murder 1 case…Crisp production.  Average flow from guest artists, but Quik’s got a dope flow.  Tight chorus.  4/5
6. Ev’ryday…Quik and Hi-C spit faster-paced rhymes to the beat.  Flow is good, but I’m not diggin’ the production.  3/5
7. Get loaded…Nice laidback production.  Hook is reminiscent of early 90’s hooks.  AMG appears for a tight verse.  4/5
8. Gina Statuatorre’…Track about underage girls.  Good lyrical content.  Chuckey appears to add a Jamaican touch to the song, which surprisingly sounds good.  3.5/5
9. 50 ways…Softer production.  Quik speaks of life and his deceased friend Mausberg, with intensity.  The only thing I don’t like about the track is the chorus, which could have been a lot better.  4.5/5
10.   Quik’s groove 6…I don’t rate the instrumentals.
11.   Get the money…Solo track by Suga Free.  He puts down a tight flow against the dope production.  4/5
12.   One on 1…R&B track.  Very slow beat and Quik’s voice is soft and quiet.  El Debarge provides the “Roger Troutman-like” vocals for the hook.  Doesn’t fit on the album.  1.5/5
13.   Sex crymee…The production is repetitive and annoying.  It’s a club sounding song.  Quik’s voice is quiet, but his flow isn’t that great here anyway.  2/5
14.   Birdz & da beez…Smooth production.  Tight verses from Quik, Hi-C, and AMG.  3.5/5
15.   Oh well…Tight production and great lyrical content.  Dope delivery.  4/5

OVERALL…7.5/10

Quik’s production is a lot better on this album than his last one.  The beats have a laidback feel, but with a west coast touch.  Quik’s flow is dope and I just wish there were more good solo songs.  Two of the solo Quik songs here were the worst on the album.  Overall, it’s got a decent replay value.

Damn! I would've gave 1 on 1, Everyday, Sex Crimey & Murda 1 Case a 5/5

Good record although I like "Rhythm-Al-Ism" more. The songs "Trouble" and "One On 1" are almost classics though.

WTF? Is you on dope?
Pharoahe ripped it.
I almost feel bad for Quik, his verses couldn't be compared.
