3 Play Thursday - DJ Quik

It's 3 Play Thursday. Today: West Coast rapper/producer extraordinaire, DJ Quik.

While he's often overlooked for his contributions to the West Coast sound, it's hard to deny DJ Quik's influence on the rap game. Yeah, Dr. Dre has all the big name hits and all the notoriety, but Quik's 20 year career has produced just as much classic material, whether it be for himself or those he laid tracks for. While Dre's over-the-top production style has generally changed with the times, Quik (he dropped the DJ) specializes in roll down the windows and crank the volume funk. And like most West Coast rappers, he's got a million cameos in his videos. See if you can count em' all.

Enough of the talk, let's get to the tracks. Everyone has their favorites, here's a few of mine.


"Born & Raised in Compton"

"You'z A Ganxta"

"Can U Werk Wit Dat"

Question: What are your favorite DJ Quik tunes?!?
