DJ Quik - Quik Is the Name (1991) Retail CD
West Coast Rap
DJ Quik is one of the many geniuses in the history of hip-hop. He is not a common musician. He is an excellent producer and an amazing rapper as well. He also does some impressive scratching with funky summertime music. All California rap fans know what I mean here. Quik's debut is actually somewhat reminiscent of some previous Compton releases, such as NWA's Straight Out Of Compton, and The D.O.C.'s No One Can Do It Better, plus some other releases that resemble the aforementioned. The music is originally innovated and well polished. Quik has completed some daring work as well, such as the Penthousemore… Players Clique album. Here, Quik worked with Eazy-E and a group he had come up with. This album was not edited and totally freely recorded and spoke. Quik was not afraid to release it, and it was an instant underground classic. The highlights on this album include the nicely bumping "Sweet Black Ladies", which has a bouncy guitar-laced beat and Quik putting in a great performance. The album's hugest single, "Tonight" is one of rap's greatest classics. Though BET and MTV didn't play it, the video with a laid-back party mood still was a big hit. The song made it on the top ten on the Jukebox. Quik's introduction to the world, "Born And Raised In Compton" came out in late 1990 and was an instant classic. The little party loop is unforgettable. On "Deep", Quik creates a hardcore horn-laced beat and joins himself with Second II None, his proteges. On "Bomb Bud", Quik makes an experiment with Reggae-tinged keyboards and a Jamaican style, which works wonderfully. "Quik Is The Name" is one of Quik's hits, and is extremely fast-paced with Quik tearing it up. "Loc'ed Out Hood" is an interesting story track with a bumping beat, perfect for parties. One of the album's best, is "Eight Ball". This funky song samples Herbie Hancock's classic "Chameleon", and works beautifully with Quik tearing it up. Of course, Quik lays down an instrumental for his "Quik's Groove", which is very relaxing, and the same beat as the song "Dedication". "I Got That Feeling" and "Scandalous" are funky tracks that hit hard with memorable loops. To conclude my review, I really like this album. It's a true classic, no skip tracks or pointless songs. No excessive sex talk or excessive trigger talk about what a gangsta he claims to be.... DJ Quik is ... one of Compton's finest.
