Could DJ Quik Really Be Retiring?

After reading the above tweet from DJ Quik – my favorite artist of all time, I felt lightheaded. Could the Quiksta really be selling all his equipment, seemingly hanging up his craft, after over two decades in the game? Please lawd, say it ain’t so!

Yet, the more I thought about the exact words this Compton OG said, the more I realized my woes might be exaggerated. After all, Q only says he’s done remixing records and engineering for other people. Maybe that means he’s finally sick enough of getting unaccredited kudos for his work on big time records, an unfortunate recurrence throughout his entire career. If so, that leaves more time for dedicating himself to new material? Huh? Maybe?

While I keep my fingers crossed the crowned prince of West Coast keeps creating for the masses, watch this extremely entertaining interview Quik did with AllHipHop explaining the rationale for selling some of the equipment, while also outing carelessly outing some folks from the Death Row days and big upping the new blood of Cali MCs.
