Title: The Audiobiography of David
Released: April 20, 2011
Produced by: DJ Quik and LA Leakers
This was a great precursor to DJ Quik’s album, The Book of David, which dropped last year. We were hip to that album but this mixtape with a guided tour of some of Quik’s best cuts and a preview of the new album got past us. Thanks to soulhead Andre’ Lundkvist from the S.F. Bay area for the lookout on this one.
Description by The Smoking Section:
A good preparatory project allows the main event to built up with anticipation and promise. If youre a DJ Q-U-I-K fan and have been patiently waiting hand and foot of the release of his eight LP, The Book Of David, the LA Leakers have compiled something great to serve as a precursor. Combining some of the best cuts from favorites such as Safe + Sound, Under The Influence and Way 2 Fonky, those well-versed in the grooves of Quik can strut down memory lane while newcomers can smack themselves back into reality with his older classics.
And everybody can meet each other halfway as the tape features a few choice cuts from the new album, including the authenticated first single, Real Women (featuring Jon B.)
The Book Of David drops in stores on 4.20.11 but if youre a true disciple of Hip-Hop, youll be blazin to this well before then.
