Platinum-certified West Coast hip-hop icon, DJ Quik returns with a brand-new single entitled “Class.” It notably paves the way for his anxiously awaited 10th full-length LP—due out under a newly minted partnership between his own Mad Science Recordings and Compound Interest.
Listen to “Class” HERE.
The track evokes classic West Coast spirit with its soulful harmonies, jazz-y guitar, and laidback beat. At the same time, Quik’s flows remain as smooth and slick as ever as he urges, “Bounce it, drop it, roll it round,” and promises, “Still make bangers, but I don’t bang. Sometimes rhyme, then I sing.” With airtight rhymes and head-nodding hooks, Quik is in a “class” all his own.
Stay tuned for the premiere of a cinematic music video to accompany the track.
Next up, Quik joins forces with West Coast heavyweights Mack 10, Warren G, The Dogg Pound (Daz & Kurupt), Suga Free, Amanda Perez and Kid Frost for the “Cali Classic Tour.” It launches on April 15 at Ector Theater in Odessa, TX, rolls through big cities up and down the West Coast, and finishes up on July 30 in Santa Maria, CA at Elks Event Center. The full confirmed itinerary is enclosed.
Quik’s forthcoming album will be his first proper project since the acclaimed 2017 collaboration Rosecrans with Problem, which boasted features from the likes of Game, Wiz Khalifa, Dom Kennedy, and more.
