Six years after his last solo studio release, Hip-Hop icon and platinum recording artist DJ Quik is back. The Compton, California native returns with his eighth solo studio album on 4/20 with The Book Of David. As a nod to his birth-name, David Blake, this latest release is a candid and insightful project.

Mixing Quik’s legendary beat crafting with his well known gangsta bravado, The Book Of David is a raw representation of Quik as both an evolved recording artist and the mind of the man behind the music, David Blake. The album is entirely produced by DJ Quik and features memorable cameos from Bun B, Ice Cube, Kurupt, Dwele, Suga Free, Jon B, Bizzy Bone and others.

“The whole idea behind this project was not just to make another rap album,” says DJ Quik. “I wanted to focus on the overall musical performance process…not just the rapping part. It’s a smart album, it’s everything I wanted it to be.”

The Book Of David is as multi-faceted as the illustrious creator. Every track provides another gripping chapter to Quik’s prolific discography. The album’s lead single, “Luv of My Life” featuring Gift Reynolds, is already garnering heavy spins from top regional radio stations, including Los Angeles’ Power 106, San Francisco’s KMEL, Seattle’s KUBE, Phoenix’s KKFR and more.

Given that his skills are just as precise now as they were two decades ago, Quik’s music remains relevant and essential. The Book Of David is yet another fine addition to the catalogue of an immensely gifted artist.
