Quik Fix

There’s a reason we don’t hear too much anymore about ’80s rappers like Kool Moe Dee, Doug E. Fresh, and EPMD. It’s because the music outgrew their particular rapping style. Shut, it’s not even called rap no mo’, you dig?

DJ Quik, who got his start in 1987, is one of those hanger-onners who still cuts records and performs across the country. So now that it’s ’08, has his art sunk or can he still swim? Find out when he performs at Venue of Scottsdale.
