Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th Ave.
 
[G-FUNK] Compton-bred MC DJ Quik is often viewed as a little brother to West Coast hip-hop greats like Snoop, Dre and Cube, but his early albums, which mixed street lyricism with Roger Troutman-esque production, helped define the genre of gangsta funk. Over the years, as his peers have veered into pop territory, Quik has stayed mostly consistent (ignore that Fixxers mess), releasing a variety of quality albums that crackle with funky synth lines and witty lyrics. His last record, 2011’s Book of David, is also one of his best yet—it features Quik going for a smoother, more refined sound that mixes elements of disco, R&B and 1970s soul.
