Compton, California producer/deejay/emcee DJ Quik recently spoke with Karmaloop TV. The Fixxers member and longtime producer for acts like Suga Free, 2nd II None and Kurupt recalled a contract offered from late Ruthless Records co-founder Eazy-E. “He offered me a record deal. He offered to buy [my contract] from Profile Records,” recalled Quik, who released three albums with Profile before the Arista Records merger. “I was with it, called Profile, they was like, ‘Get the fuck outta here.'”
Despite not signing, Quik was an instrumental producer for the label on projects such as Paid The Cost by the Penthouse Players Clique.
In April, Quik held a Los Angeles Book of David album release party at an unnamed marijuana dispensary. Quik revealed that he’s partnered with one on his own strain of potent “kush” marijuana. “I’m actually waitin’ on one of the dispensaries in L.A. to give me my own strain called DJ Quik Kush.”
