DJ Quik and Scarface are two living legends of Hip-Hop, Gangsta Rap, and music, period. Together, the two artists jammed on stage in The Novo in Los Angeles, California last night (August 17). With that show currently on the road, the Geto Boys icon and the producer for Tupac, 2nd II None, and JAY-Z made some big news backstage.
“Scarface came to the studio recently, like a couple of months ago,” begins DJ Quik to HipHopDX‘s Jake Rohn and Ural Garrett. The Compton, California native was working with one of Mike WiLL’s artists. “He came in, and he picked up the guitar and started playing the guitar. I’m like, ‘Scarface on guitar…for real?’ But he killed it.” With ‘Face on the axe, Quik got on drums. “We all started jamming, impromptu. I think we all knew it from that point. Bro, we still do this. This is what we are; we’re musicians, and people need to see this.” The pair decided on a concert. After a couple rehearsals, they booked. Like Big Daddy Kane and Kool G Rap’s recent events, the two trade off moments on stage. According to Quik, they play selections within their extensive catalogs from roughly the same period, and progress.
