DJ Quik covers this weeks issue of LA Weekly this week and his story couldn’t be covered by just words in the magazine, so the publication spent a day with Quik is his Compton neighborhood.

Now, everybody wants to know the truth about a brotha named Quik

I come from the school of the sly, wicked and the slick

A lotta people already know exactly where it’s at

‘Cause it’s the home of the jackers and the crack

(Compton) Yeah, that’s the name of my hometown

-“Born and Raised in Compton,” DJ Quik

“Sitting in his studio in a Papa Smurf t-shirt, or sliding through Compton in his gleaming black Mercedes, DJ Quik talks about driving through Crip territory as a Blood, Eazy-E’s offer of a million dollars to sign, and his disbelief that he’s still alive. It’s a trip through his hood, but also his life.”
