DJ Quik – The Book of David

April 27, 2011

The west coast is pretty bad at taking care of their own.  DJ Quik has been making dope music for two decades now and is barely a footnote in the hip-hop canon.  While everyone salivates over the pending release of a certain legend’s comeback, Quik just dropped the perfect summer album.  Lyrically he’s OK, but there are so many guests on this one that it’s pretty much a producer’s compilation album anyway.  The production on this one isn’t as risky as BlaQKOut; Quik sticks to his G-funk roots but it’s understandable: he’s absolutely mastered the sounde.  Gotta give a special shoutout to Suga Free and Kurupt, who are both hilarious in their own ways.  We really need to give rappers from California more credit for their charisma and versatility because (it seems like) every rapper from New York in 2011 is still trying to audition for a spot on DJ Clue’s The Professional.  Pick this one over Doggumentary if you’re looking for a west-coast album to hold you down this summer.
