Attention: DJ Quik's 9th solo album on the way
Remember when DJ Quik threatened to sell all of his equipment and bail on the music industry? Luckily, his frustrations were short-lived and he's sticking around the scene.
According to Complex magazine, the rapper recently announced that his 9th solo album is already in the works. DJ Quik noted that he's trying to re-capture the vibe he had circa 1989, and will even be sampling music from his debut album "Quik Is The Name."
"I won't be impressed until I sound as youthful and naive as I used to," the Compton native said. "I don't want the smarts anymore. Smarts don't really work. Smarts are boring. In music, sometimes, you just gotta throw caution to the wind..."
DJ Quik took a pretty long break - this is his first studio album since 2011's "Book of David." Are you psyched that he's using his earliest album for inspiration?
