Cali we’re coming! Last year’s DAY OFF LA was so insane that we had to return with an even crazier lineup. Sunday (11/10) we’re bringing A-Trak, Danny Brown, Kill The Noise, DJ Quik, Freddie Gibbs, Travi$ Scott, Nick Catchdubs feat IAMSU & Jay Ant, Anna Lunoe, gLAdiator and more to the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall (East Lot) in Los Angeles from 2-8pm. Free with RSVP at foolsgoldrecs.com/dayoff while it lasts, so act fast (and get there early, admission based on capacity and RSVP does not guarantee entry).
It’s only right that we keep the vibes going with another mega NIGHT OFF afterparty too! Get your tickets now to come check Daedelus, Kingdom, gLAdiator, Sleepy Tom (in his LA debut!), Kittens and more put it down starting at 10pm. Read More
Anyone that truly knows my musical inclinations knows that DJ Quik is in my Top 5 of artists of all time. So the fact that I am on the same bill with him has me JUICED.
The one thing that I can say about him is that he has always been ahead of the curve, able to do what others in his genre could never think of doing. Back in middle school I remember watching PBS right before Reading Rainbow was about to come on, when all of a sudden “Quik’s Groove III” came on as the soundbed for the station ID!
Working with musicians like El Debarge and Raphael Saadiq, as well as a high level of live instrumentation, have only helped solidify him as a pioneer of sophisticated grown-folks gangsta rap music. Did I mention Suga Free?
