Rappers DJ Quik and Scarface made appearances at the Anaheim Grove on June 7.
DJ Quik a West coast, born and raised in Compton star performed a slew of his greatest hits. Quik returned with his 8th solo studio album, The Book of David, hence a nod to his birth name David Blake.
Quik like always, never let his fans down as he performed songs like “Tonite,” “Born and Raised in Compton” and “Dollaz n Sense.” DJ Quik definitely knows how to get the party jumping, while interacting with his fans.
He also keeps his family involved in the business, which is a really good thing because it keeps West coast music evolving. At one point he had his nephews rap group Young Giantz, perform before setting foot on stage. Quiks oldest son was behind the scene as well, spinning records while smoking a blunt.
Hands down this concert, within its first 10 minutes, had Michael Jackson beats with a twist of west coast flavor in terms of artistry, quality, presentation, and engagement with the audience.
Houston, TX legendary rapper and Icon Scarface was next, and even though he’s a huge Astros fan, he did come out on stage wearing an Anaheim Angels jersey to show respect to the city and their fans.
Scarface, from the legendary hip-hop group The Geto boys, paid tribute to the late Bushwick Bill who passed away recently from cancer. Scarface performed many hits songs like “I seen a Man Die,” “Mind playing tricks on me” and “Damn it feels good to be a Gangsta.”
Scarface isn’t scared to express his political views as well. He expressed to his fans that he will no longer perform in California or anywhere else because he will be focusing on running for city council in Houston, TX. This is a huge step from the hip hop world to the political arena.
Nonetheless, Scarface had the crowd reminiscing to all his favorite songs as people sang along and pulled out their cellphones to record this memorable moment.
This concert was definitely one for the books as two legends from both sides of the country, made it a night to remember.
