wow.. surprised ya'll love DJ Quik so much.. I mean he's dope and all but he's not a legend like Daz and Warren G.  

YES...YES, HE IS.

much more so than Daz

If he is.. then name me one legendary Quik track on par with...

"Ambitionz of a Ridah"
"2 of America's Most Wanted"
"(nearly the whole damn Dogg Food album)"
"What Would U Do"
"Got My Mind Made Up"

Quik has a collection of dope tracks but no LEGENDARY cuts


1st off Quik mixed the records Daz produced for All Eyez On Me. Sometimes he even ghostproduced them, and took it to another level, as he did for Skandalouz. Second Soopafly co-produced every single track Daz supposedly produced for All Eyez On Me, knowing that Soopafly is a musician, we can guess that Soopafly is more responsible for the greatness of these beats than Daz. We all know  Death Row was shady regarding producer's credits,

Quote from: DJ Quik
DX: I just know “Skandalouz” wouldn’t be the classic it is without the talk box [you added to it].

DJ Quik: Yeah, I touched [that record]. I had my boy, Cornelius Mims, play bass on it. That was Daz [Dillinger]’s beat. Daz shot it to me and I really made it a record that they wouldn’t have to clear a sample with. I played Rhodes [electric piano] on there too. I was coming.

Quote from: Soopafly
Yea, me and Daz did alot fo production for "All Eyez on Me". We did Ambitionz Az a Ridah, Ain't Mad at Cha, Nuttin but a Gangsta Party.

I hooked up with Dr Dre. Started fucking with the keyboards, and started making beats for them. I worked alot with Daz. Me and Daz had a good relationship. I did alot of shit with Daz. I didn't get credit for the production I did cuz I wasn't signed with Deathrow then, but I did beats for Daz and he would pay me under the table.

Legendary DJ Quik cuts (just a glimpse cause there's more) :

  • Tonite
  • Born and raised in Compton
  • Jus Lyke Compton

  • Dollaz + Sense
  • Summer Breeze
  • Youz a Ganxta
  • Medley For A "V" (The Pussy Medley)
  • The Divorce Song

SAFE + SOUND, DOLLAZ & SENSE, YOUZ A GANGXTA, DOWN DOWN DOWN, PITCH IN ON A PARTY, SO MANY WAYZ, TONITE

HOW FAMILIAR ARE U WIT THESE CUTS, HONESTLY?

Honestly, I'm very familiar with all the cuts you mentioned, except maybe "Safe + Sound", "Pitch In A Party" I haven't bumped that much.  All the other tracks you've mentioned I've played out on repeat... Don't take me as someone who isn't a Quik fan, I love Quik and give him madd respect and props.   

But those songs you mentioned are all very dope cuts, but not the stuff of legends.

the glory boys of the 90s...gotta love em.


warren g has earned his stripes but no hes not a very accomplished producer, he has classics among this niche community but none of his shit after regulate was very memorable.


all he did on regulate and a bunch of those beats was loop a sample and if your lucky warren played a moog riff over it....


once he got to doing the twinz album he was making some original compositions and his choice of samples was getting better but after he lost the def jam machene it seemed like his beats took a turn for the worst. im not sure if he lost his studio players or had to downgrade his equipment but he never really could find his groove after regulate...i want it all was a DOPE comeback effort but then the albums that followed it all sucked and yall know it.

nice post, and good info about the equipment he was using, Def Jam machine, etc..

I do disagree slightly in saying "all he did" on Regulate was loop samples and that his choice of samples later IMPROVED.  It's hard to IMPROVE on perfection and the G Funk Era album was the West Coast version of Nas Illmatic in my opinion it was perfection.

I also disagree slightly with you saying all his albums after I Want It All "sucked", don't forget The Return Of The Regulator had some dope cuts on there

You can't be a legend without legendary tracks.  DJ Quik's career was always on the cusp of legendary status.  He's like the B Team of West Coast greatest.  On the A team you got 2pac, Dre, Snoop, Daz, Kurupt, Ice Cube, Nate Dogg, Warren G, Xzibit, etc... then on the B team you have the likes of DOC, DJ Quik, Rass Kass, Tray Dee, Johnny J, etc.

I still think everything Warren G did for other artist was straight fire. His own stuff is to be desired, but tracks like That's Gangsta by Kurupt, Nobody Does It Better with Nate Dogg, Sassy Ways with 213 and other tracks are straight fire. Not sure if Warren is not confident in himself as a rapper to give himself the good beats (although I would say Warren G the rapper is not that good) but I don't judge Warren G by his albums, but what he gave others or what beats he used when others were featured on his track. That Warren G is only second to DJ Quik and Dr. Dre in my opinion.

wow... for us both being big time Warren G fans I totally disagree with all the details of this post.

First of all, "Sassy Ways" was a Warren G song on a Warren G album.

Warren G gave himself all of his best beats.   His best beats are on G Funk Era, "Regulate", "Do You See", "Recognize", "So Many Ways" are the all time great, classic, timeless Warren G beats.  He is very under-rated as a rapper, as his voice, flow and lyrics always matched the nostalgic sound of his production.  Another lesser known classic of his was, "Still Can't Fade It" off the Show Soundtrack (best soundtrack of all time).

I think he also had some of his best beats on the Twinz Conversation album but you didn't mention any of those cuts.

"return of the regulator" and "in the mid-nite hour" were both dope albums....."g-files" had some nice cuts, as well. his production helped define g-funk and his style became one of the wests staple sounds. has nothin to do with glory boys or any of that shit, the guy is a bonafide west coast legend, one of my favorite producers from any coast. i dont think ive heard a whack warren g beat. i dont think any producer is as good with the smooth shit as warren.

quik goes with the first group, homie....take it from an LA head. ask any of those 9 artists u listed whether dj quik is a first rate legend, and all will jump up enthusiastically to say yes...guaranteed.

wow... for us both being big time Warren G fans I totally disagree with all the details of this post.

First of all, "Sassy Ways" was a Warren G song on a Warren G album.

Warren G gave himself all of his best beats.   His best beats are on G Funk Era, "Regulate", "Do You See", "Recognize", "So Many Ways" are the all time great, classic, timeless Warren G beats.  He is very under-rated as a rapper, as his voice, flow and lyrics always matched the nostalgic sound of his production.  Another lesser known classic of his was, "Still Can't Fade It" off the Show Soundtrack (best soundtrack of all time).

I think he also had some of his best beats on the Twinz Conversation album but you didn't mention any of those cuts.

I thought the Twinz album was just a given? LOL, that's like saying the sky is blue.

G Funk Era is the 2nd best album he produced. But outside of G Funk Era, I do think he has lost some confidence in his own rapping abilities. But well his other album productions have been mixed as tracks that have a feature are great, solo tracks not so much, his work for others is top notch.

Just a quick run down of Warren tracks.
