As summer began to heat up, legendary artist and producer DJ Quik announced that he was preparing to sue a fellow Compton rapper. While Quik released this information in the early part of June, he has been relatively quiet about the situation until yesterday. In a series of now-deleted tweets, Quik expressed his frustration for not receiving his credit or lack thereof on YG's breakout hit "My Ni**a." The 2013 platinum-selling lead single featuring Jeezy and Rich Homie Quan, was released on YG’s debut album, My Krazy Life.
“Y’all had me engineer and record My Nigga for @YG and did not give me credit," Quik tweeted. "My Lawyer has You [in] His sights. You’ve fu**ed up.”
In the credits for the record, there is no mention of DJ Quik, also known as David Blake. Instead, Engineers Dee Brown, Zane Shoemake and James Royo are credited as the ones who recorded the song. Although Quik has deleted his rant on Twitter, he posted a video on Instagram with the caption "Run me my money. #UbitchU." While it isn't clear who Quik is referring to, one can only imagine who the message is for.
Young Compton rapper YG didn't have much to say in response to Quik. Despite being relatively silent about the situation, YG tweeted "F**k the police," to Quik yesterday.
