"DJ Quik hits the mainstream with a bang in "Quik Is The Name." Here, he starts his trademark old school P-Funk vibe that would be prevalent in most of his future work. Sure, Dre deserves a lot of the credit for starting the G-Funk craze of the 90's, but Quik deserves at least as much of the credit too!! His beats are nothing short of phenomenal. The beat on "Tonite" is ahead of its time; it sounds like it could have came out in '95 or '96. He keeps it old school on tracks like "8 Ball" and "Quik Is The Name." His rhyming is good and his style is entertaining. The songs are funky, laced with the twist of the turntable. He isn't too hard core, but he still has a street credibility. Cop it!!!!

dj quik tonite tha best song there is man"
Underrated West Coast Classic

"I feel like DJ Quik is one of the most underrated rappers ever. He's contributed so much to hip hop but his name never seems to come up when discussing the west coast's greatest. "Quik is the Name" took 90s hip hop to the next level. This album is just as responsible for starting the g-funk craze as Dr. Dre's "Chronic" is. With thirteen tracks, Quik created a perfect blend of early nineties hip hop with his funky p-funk samples and great lyricism to make an excellent album. His beats make him, in my mind, one of the best producers out there, and his rapping sounds like Eazy-E. "Quik is the Name" helped solidify west coast hip hop as a force in rap.

The album begins with "Sweet Black Pu$$y", a great track with a sweet guitar laden beat. Quik lets everybody know about his tendencies and he shows his smart yet likably immature style. "Tonite" is one of my favorite songs ever, it has a perfect bassline and keyboards throughout. I love the theme, the lyrics speak of "A day in the life of a brother named Quik" and it's the perfect party song or song to listen to whenever. "Born and Raised in Compton" is the second best song on the disc, a classic with a great beat, with Quik describing some of his experiences growing up in CPT. "Deep" and "8 Ball" both have funky guitar beats and are plain fun songs. "Loc'ed Out Hood" is one of the better lyrical songs on the album. "Tha Bombudd" is Quik's stab at a reggae track, he does a great job with the reggae guitar beat and has a funny Jamaican accent, it sounds authentic. "Quik is the Name" is another of my favorites, I love the scratch, and he rhymes real fast on it. "Quik's Groove" and "Dedication" have the same rolling, deep beat with funky guitar, it's great to chill to. "Tear it Off" is a good early-nineties style track, it has a chant and a horn line in the chorus, very nice. "I Got That Feeling" shows his slowed down side, displaying more of his versatility.

"Quik is the Name" is a very underrated album and would appeal to any fan of either early nineties rap or g-funk. He is one of the best producers and is intelligent lyrically as well. This album is as classic as any and deserves as much respect as nearly any west coast album you'll find."

"This is one of the greatest and underrated hip hop albums of all time. Definitely in my top 25. From the moment I heard Sweet Black and on one of the versus he is rhymin and he goes hold on this the wrong mutha------ page and s==t I need to start over and then starts rhymin again I was like whoa classic. This came out back in 91. The big hits were his 2 biggest hits Tonite, and Born And Raised In Compton. But also some of my favorites Deep, Quik Is The Name, the raggea song about weed Bombudd, and I even like the Dedication. This album should be ranked up there when they talk about 5 mics or whatever they used to rank these albums. If you like this check out 2nd II None first one and AMB B==== Betta Have My Money."
