DJ Quik Full Clip Full Clip: DJ Quik

David Blake is brazenly blunt when detailing the many triumphs, painful experiences and losses in his life. But when you are DJ Quik, one of West Coast hip-hop’s most influential figures, your life is open for the entire world to see and at times scrutinize. There is nothing to hide. The groundbreaking rapper and producer, who followed N.W.A.’s lead, repping his notorious Compton, California ‘hood with his seminal 1991 debut Quik is The Name, will boldly tell you that he’s done just as much to propel Cali-rap on the map as his friend and peer Dr. Dre. And who could argue with a criminally underrated talent who battled through depression, alcoholism, a jail stint, and the deaths of close friends during an unpredictable two decade run?

Read the whole article of DJ Quik breaking down his catalogue on Vibe. Look out for The Book of David, out April 19th.

In the late 80s Tosh of the Bash Street Kids Sound System and Drax of the World Domination Crew staged a series of train parties on the London Underground. The premise was to meet at a chosen tube station at a certain time and when a sizeable number of revellers had congregated, the gathering would proceed through the gates, down to the platform, board a train and create what was essentially a moving block party!
