Riding Through Compton With DJ Quik (Video)

blame it on Meka June 3, 2011

David graces the cover of the latest issue of LA Weekly, and took them through a ride of his hometown.

Sitting in his studio in a Papa Smurf t-shirt, or sliding through Compton in his gleaming black Mercedes, DJ Quik talks about driving through Crip territory as a Blood, Eazy-E’s offer of a million dollars to sign, and his disbelief that he’s still alive. It’s a trip through his hood, but also his life.

Shit, I still don’t wear red laces in my sneakers whenever I’m in LA. Fuck that shit. Quik’s The Book Of David is available now [cop via iTunes].
