There is no doubt that Quik is a better producer than an emcee. Quik won’t make you hit the rewind button with his lyricism, but he manages to hold your attention with playful lines about women, weed, weather and gangsta shit delivered in his signature nasally high pitched vocal. Sonically his layered production was a head of its time. There were other producers that used layered samples (i.e. The Dust Brothers, Bomb Squad, etc.), but Quick used live instrumentation (or synthesizer) underneath his samples, giving his instrumentals a cleaner sound opposed to his east coast counter parts dustier feel.
