Leave it to the Arsenio Hall Show to deliver the biggest music news of my year.
After speculation Quik might have been retiring altogether, the best producer in LA Hip-Hop history announced he has gotten funding for his 9th album. *Breathes deep sigh of relief* Not only that, but the project will be a resurrection of sorts, as the Compton OG says he will be sampling his old material for the basis of the project. Yes, DJ Quik is so dope he can sample himself.
Since that’s all that was really said as far as an album announcement, we’re sitting here, happily waiting in the wings. The fact there is something official in the works was all that’s needed for me to send mass texts to my friends celebrating the news and cranking my 196 song Spotify playlist of fonky jams from the Quiksta. After all, you know what this is all building up to, right?
“The Bombudd III,” my friends. Smoke something to that hypothetical.
