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.":
