DJ Quik & Kurupt – Exodus
DJ Quik & Kurupt – Jupiter’s Critic & The Mind of Mars
DJ Quik and Kurupt’s collaborative effort BlaQKout is an absolutely stunning album. It’s frightening how well DJ Quik makes experimental and ambiguous music (keeping it way 2 fonky!) yet remaining accessible, grounded and extremely authentic. Kurupt’s performance is also on point through out the album, comfortably pushing ahead with personality, substance, and humor. It’s also worth checking Matthew Africa’s eye-opening and lovingly put together Quik tape. I am listening to Mos Def’s latest long player The Ecstastic as well. There is a lot of creativity and innovation in these two albums.
