This was his one chance to move up from being an underground producer (sorry folks, I'm as big a Quik fan anyone is but he's underground).  He was going to produce a track on Jay Z's "retirement" album and it was the most hyped anticipated album of the year.  Everyone was going to listen to.  Then he produces "justify my thug".  To this day I can't get over how fucking garbage the piece of shit beat is, and the entire sound of the beat is just disgusting.  Absolutely disappointing.  If Jay had been rapping on that classic Quik production we all know and love who knows how much work he'd of gotten.  Majority of people who heard the track were like "Damn this track sucks, who produced this trash? the fuck is a DJ quik? fuck that nigga and this track"


Also doesn't help it followed Interlude 2, classic Just Blaze beat
Guess who back in the motherfuckin house

That song had no effect on his career. He was working with (and made hits with) big stars before that and he did afterwards as well. Are you trying to say people never heard "Lets Get Down", "Put it On Me" "Tonight" "Addictive" before?

Funny thing is Justify My Thug is one of my favorite tracks off that whole album. I guess thats why they're called 'personal' opinions.

 Yeah it wasn't classic Quik but good producers adapt to the artist's style. Jay wouldn't sound right over some classic westcoast quik funk.

kinda agree wit this tho.
Quik isnt anywhere near the mainstream-producer elite.. nobody hires him. not even the king of the west- Snoop (just his mixing)
the Jay-Z thing was a chance for him to make an impression, but he failed

i somewhat agree with the threadstarter.  as a big Quik fan myself, that beat was a little disappointing.  however i don't think he "fucked up his own career".

A little known fact, Quik originally made the "California" beat from Trauma for Jay-Z's Black Album.  Jay-Z obviously passed on it and Quik used it for his own album.  I wish Jay had selected it...  I think it may have been a better fit for the Black Album than Justify My Thug

"Justify My Thug" was a dope beat.

Luda an ti collaboration happened like FIVE years ago.  Snoop works with mad people from the west who aren't known outside Cali.  And dude mentioned xzibit? Has anyone fallen off more then him?



Let's face it, he fucked up

Jay-Z happened 8 years ago. Since 7 years ago is more recent, then it means Quik collaborated with Platinum artists after working on The Black Album.

What does it matter how long ago those collabs happened? The Ludacris collab happened after the Jay-Z collaboration so obviously that beat couldn't have fucked up him producing for mainstream rappers. Your statement has been disproven. Lets see who else....Xzibit (before he fell off), Chingy when he was hot, Yung Joc when he was hot, Maroon 5, The Game, etc. Not to mention all the mainstream artists he worked with before that song. It's not like he hasn't produced hits before. Addictive was huge. Lets Get Down was popular. Yes, he's not really a mainstream producer, but he's been a part of a few hits and your opinion of one Jay-Z song he did has zero impact on his career. For crying out loud, he was producing for Whitney Houston and Janet Jackson before that.

Underground? Pull your head out your ass for a second there. The dude is firmly established so skip it all with that stupid shit. He's been in the studio fucking with Dr. Dre, Snoop, and all them cats for the past several years. He may not be a worldwide household name but he's respected in the industry. He's worked with the cream of the crop.

There's only a few songs on that album that don't bang and Justify My Thug is one of em.
Not a favorite.
