DJ Quik’s new album titled “The Book of David” has seventeen tracks, only four of them don't have guests so you don't get a great deal of Quik but enough of him to satisfy his fans. His lyrics aren't as filthy or funny as his previous work but he shows he's matured and spits some more real deeper. The production is done by him and as usual is a great work.
I felt DJ Quik took his time to put out this excellent album since his previous work Trauma (2005). Its been over five years and yet he can still maintain his vocal discipline. I like his electro-punk music like on "Real Women" which shows his talent and what he can work with. He continues that rhythm all over this album. DJ sounds great with penning his verses. "Killer Dope" is a single when both his lyrics and creation talent comes together. "Luv of My Life" and "Flow For Sale" are other numbers that come as one. He does re-establish that west coast music that a lot of fans have been waiting for. I wish this unlock the door for other west coast vet to return with some new materials, and The Book of David is an excellent CD.
