Bootleg: DJ Quik & 2nd II None - '94 Death Row Charity Show

Posted: Thursday, April 12, 2012 by Fashion Munx in Labels: , ,

During the mid-90s Compton's DJ Quik was closely involved with Death Row Records, he appeared on their Murder Was The Case soundtrack, Suge Knight executive produced his album Safe + Sound, and Quik produced and mixed most of 2Pac's All Eyez On Me. Apparently, Suge Knight wanted to sign him and his frequent collaborators 2nd II None to Death Row proper but 2nd II None thought the deal was too rich for it to be legit and refused to sign although both artists were managed by Knight. It makes sense as DJ Quik was one of the early innovators of G Funk music as well as bringing gang culture to hip-hop music. Anywho, what I have for you today is a concert that DJ Quik, 2nd II None and DJ Rogers performed for a Death Row Records benefit at what I'm guessing was either the House of Blues in L.A. or Death Row's Club 662 in Las Vegas. The set list contains a few of DJ Quik's hits of the time like "Tonite" and "Loc'd Out Hood" but the most interesting pieces are probably the 2nd II None tracks which were all meant for their DJ Quik produced sophomore effort, The Shit, that was never released. The sound quality is rather good and really translates the energy of the show to the listener. There was copies of this posted on other blogs and forums prior to the recent filehost issues but none seemed to be a very good birate whereas mine is a 320 kbps rip. Enjoy!
