iTunes Review

One of hip-hop's greatest (and longest-lasting) producer/emcees, DJ Quik has been making hits for more than 20 years now. (He dropped his classic debut, Quik Is the Name, back in 1991.) In addition to making his own hits (including "Tonite," "Jus Lyke Compton," and "Pitch in on a Party"), he discovered and mentored rappers like AMG, Suga Free, 2nd II None, Playa Hamm, and Mausberg, and he worked extensively with West Coast royalty Dre, Snoop, Tupac, Nate Dogg, Kurupt, and Daz. Under Tha Influence is his sixth album, originally released in 2002; it was his first on an independent label. Though not as flawless as some of his earlier projects, it's still a quality effort, overflowing with his signature ultra-funky keyboards, always-clever party-and-Bs lyricism, and big-name guests (Dre, Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, Suga Free, El Debarge). Check out "Get Tha Money," "Put It on Me," and "Come 2Nyte."

Quik is the MAN, Under Tha Influence is his best

Under Tha Influence is my favorite of Quik's records and for me that's saying quite a bit. I love Quik's beats and vocal style and have rarely found a work I did not like. Every one though is a bit similar. Until Under Tha Influence that could be by nobody but Quik, yet which has a spark of newness about it that absolutely mesmorizes me. There is not a track on it that I would not rate as 5 stars and I can't take it out of my player even after almost 4 years. HIGHLY recommended.


DJ Quik is a legend and one of the best there's ever been. This is a great cd along with the otherz he's made. Check em' all out!

Very good

Amazing production value and purely classic material...
