DJ Quik was honored as part of Los Angeles radio station KDay’s 40th celebration last night — and he made sure the audience could smell the flowers he was getting, reminding them of all the iconic tracks he’s produced for other artists!!!
TMZ Hip Hop got this video of Quik performing Thursday night in L.A., where he put on a brave face for the crowd — he and his family buried his brother Gerald Ray earlier in the day — but the original Bompton rapper explained why his late sibling would understand.
Quik had his son David Blake Jr. spin through a barrage of his personal hits, along with tracks he lent any bit of studio time to get ’em done — 2Pac and Snoop Dogg‘s “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted,”Kendrick Lamar‘s “King Kunte” and 50 Cent‘s “If I Can’t” … to name just a handful of the classic he played.
He also showed love to YG‘s super platinum “My Hitta” single — which Quik says he engineered and recorded but never officially got credit for doing it.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
KDAY was the city’s first all-rap station and Quik shouted them out his entire career but the honors came full circle for them as well … December 7 will now be “KDAY Day” in L.A.!!!
