DJ Quik & Kurupt: For The Funk Of It
by Joseph Poakwa
DJ Quik, arguably The West Coast's best producer connects with Kurupt The Kingpin to create a lyrical and sonic explosion...
2009 has been a year full of ups and downs so far. With the passing of Michael Jackson, the world has realized how fragile the music industry really is. There aren't many people that can enter the fraternity of music and produce works with the ability to stand the test of time. Each year sees the entrance and exit of a new artist; however with every exit we are reminded of those select few artists who have been able to produce hit after hit, leaving them with a career full of longevity. Kurupt and DJ Quik are an example of what happens when an artist creates rather than imitates.
For their uniqueness and ability to create music that not only defined a neighborhood, but an era, Quik and Kurupt continue to be West Coast staples and Hip Hop Legends. With their combined effort Blaqkout in the streets blowing out speakers, Hip-Hop Wired sat down with the west coast kings to speak on their longevity, Death Row records, and the untimely passing of Michael Jackson.
