DJ Quik and Hi-C recently stopped by the KDAY Morning Show with Romeo to talk about his upcoming performance at Krush Groove 2019, Nipsey Hussle‘s passing, working with Tupac and all the artists he’s worked with.
Murray went on to mention how a fan gave him a hard time a couple Krush Groove’s ago because he had a live band. “Maybe I shouldn’t have brought the band because this girl went off on me. I was thinking she would give me fan love but she berated me and went off and I was like, ‘man, shut up,” he jokingly says.
Quik went on to say how he felt when he heard about the passing of Nipsey Hussle and compares it to Malcolm X/MLK’s death, rather than 2Pac or Biggie’s.
“This was more like the Malcolm X situation because he was more politically involved, like Martin Luther King. I don’t even put him in the Biggie or Pac, I’m just being real…In real life his was a little more important, I hate to say that, but he was more important because he was real current and he was always in his hood and community doing things.”
The veteran rapper/producer goes on to mention the names he’s worked with. He mentions: Snoop Dogg, Eazy-E, Rick James, Whitney Houston and other legends.
Hi-C and Quik also mention their top three rappers of the 90s.
