DJ Quik believes he deserves the same respect as Dr. Dre

Surprisingly active on social media lately, DJ Quik claims a status similar to that of Dr. Dre, even though the now 52-year-old man has never shone as brightly as his colleague on the front of the stage.

DJ Quik takes stock

Claiming a career as long as the arm and having collaborated with many legends, including Snoop Dogg, Kurupt or Tupac, DJ Quik seems to have passed at the time of the balance sheet. Architect of the G-Funk sound that characterized the West Coast in the 90s, the artist is, from his point of view, left on the side, even if he deserves recognition at the height of a Dr. Dre, like he explained on Twitter: I know it’s early. But I deserve to be where Dr. Dre is. I don’t think that’s fair, but I understand why. I’ve never had a machine behind me, and it’s always hurt my friends more than it hurts me. »

Far from resenting Dre, whom he describes as “big brother he never had”Quik will also regret the fact that many listeners have regularly hoisted him against the author of 2001 : “The truth is, I love Dr. Dre like the big brother I never had. It hurts me when people put us against each other. »

His conclusion is nevertheless intended to be tinged with a certain realism: “I know I’ll never be as popular as I should be, but I have many artists, and when they shine, I smile. The janitor doesn’t profit from success, but he makes sure that everything goes well behind the scenes. »
