Having been media silent for some time – until speaking to DubCNN at his album release party late last year – DJ Quik has given some great interviews of late and one has been dropped by the team at Montreality.
As Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp A Butterfly” dropped early, the team at Montreality released the piece that see’s Quik speak on a huge level of topical subjects, including the new K.Dot album – even touching on how impressed he was when they first met around the time Quik mixed the Jay Rock & Lil Wayne track “All My Life.”
The wide-ranging interview touches on the type of student he was at school and jobs he had as a teenager, before divulging what he spent his first paycheck on! Did you know Quik’s favourite cartoon character was – well you will when you watch this!
Next up Quik reminisces on his love for Eazy-E and Nate Dogg – and how shocked the Westcoast was when he passed. Want to hear about his relationship with Dr. Dre? Hear how his depression following being dropped from his longtime label led him to hanging out in the studio with Dre, and showing the good doctor his technique of sampling that fed into future hits from 50 Cent, Truth-Hurts, and Eminem.
