DJ Quik Blasts Dr. Dre's Beats Music; DJ Quik Says He's Wrong

UPDATED: DJ Quik says he is not pleased that his music is not included on the Beats Music app. DJ Quik says that his music is indeed on the Beats App.

DJ Quik says that he is not pleased with Dr. Dre's Beats Music.

"There is no DJ QUIK music on the Beatsmusic app. THIS IS PERSONAL AND IM NOT TAKING IT ANYMORE. ITS ON,” DJ Quik wrote on Twitter yesterday (June 24).

Beats Music launched in January and is said to feature a catalog of 20 million songs.

In another tweet, DJ Quik references Tupac Shakur’s beef with Dr. Dre, which reportedly revolved around Dr. Dre taking longer than Tupac liked to make and record songs.

"TUPAC YOU WERE RIGHT ON THE MONEY,” another DJ Quik tweet said.

DJ Quik is likely referring to a section of Tupac’s song “To Live & Die In L.A.,” a song he released on the 1996 album the 7day theory under the moniker Makaveli the don killuminati. 

On the outro of “To Live & Die In L.A.,” Tupac says, “LA. California Love part motherfucking two without gay-ass Dre.”

Tupac and Dr. Dre released the song “California Love” in 1995. 

DJ Quik and Dr. Dre are both rapper-producers from Compton, California.

The two have worked together, including “Put It On Me,” a 2001 song featured on the Training Day soundtrack. Dr. Dre also appeared in the acclaimed film.

DJ Quik’s tweets are as follows, as is “To Live & Die In L.A.":

    Dj Quik is the best producer on the West he just never made hit singles after his first album.Personally I think he should say fuck it and sell out.No one ever thought Juicy J would be a household name but he's laughing all the way to the bank.Fuck that sellout shit Quik is just as good as Pharell and better then Kanye.Let the whole world know Quik iz still the nigga!

      My thoughts exactly. People love to talk that sellout shit but does that even exist? I mean in this world it's all about the money and power, and you gonna have to compromise or fuck some people over if you wanna get to the top

    Fuck all that yappin, y'all bitches putting Dre above Quik need to sit ya ass down and stay the fuck in line. Was dre doing live jazz instrumentals? No Was he doing live funk interpolations? No Was dre doing keyboard solos on songs? No Did dre introduce flute solos into gangta rap? No Was dre the second greatest talkbox player ever after roger troutman? No Did he have the 3rd best hand claps in history outside of parliment n roger? No Sit yo ass down somewhere if quik did follow dre he's been making beats instead of live compositions Did dre arrange strings and flutes for the South Central philharmonic orchestra? Fuck no But quik's the one following right? Did dre come up with a way to blend digitial and analog so guitars and strings won't face as much harmonic distortion? No But quik did the following let u blind beats by dre headphone buyers tell it.

    Quik, get a grip. Are you high or what? Do you think Dre hand picks the 20 million tracks on Beats Music? If your music isn't on a service call your company and ask them why.

    Dre actually has little to do with where Beats Music get it's actual catalog from. You indie artist using CD Baby will find that YOUR music is up on Beats as well. I had to let a couple of my people know they're shit was on Beats Music. They had no clue.

  • me

    these dudes are all wayyyyyyy too emotional.

  • R.I.P. DX

    I would say "FUCK DRE" too after I produced hits after hits for him. Dj Quik produced a lot of hits for Dre Everybody in the Industry know Dr Dre doesnt "produce" shit. And Yes, Dr Dre is Gay. There is a 2pac Interview where Tupac goes off and says Dr Dre is sucking dick in the studio

      The Younger Cats Don't Know That... DJ Quik is the best West Coast Producer Dr. Dre is the best "Mixer" after he pays you for a beat he "likes" from you ex.quik,hutch,j-flexx,daz,mel-man,etc... Dr.Dre is B as well, All Good in Hollyweird! "And I'll prove I'm proper and yo game is whack with 1 line I'll never put my name on a track that wasn't mine"
