8. DJ Quik-The Bombudd

Compton’s DJ Quik has had a “reggae-type joint” on nearly every one of his albumsโ€”at least nine tracks in all, that we know of. Typically, these have been escapes from gangster-ismโ€”a category the eclectic Quik has always sought to ascendโ€” into pure comedy and singing. In fact, Quik is quite versed in early ’80s deejay styles, mimicking the likes of Yellowman and others on straight-up reggae tracks like “The Bombudd,” from 1992’s Quik is the Name.
