Longevity is becoming a bigger issue in hip-hop as the genre starts to age. But some dudes, like DJ Quik, don’t let it get to them. He’s been in the game for 20 years now and he’s celebrating the anniversary with the release of his eighth studio album, The Book of David. But before that drops next month, he’s put together this career retrospective with some help from the Los Angeles Leakers. It includes 17 tracks from Quik’s storied discography, with three of the songs set to appear on The Book of David. If you have ever wanted to get into his music, this is probably the easiest way to do so. Unless, of course, you have the money to cop all of his albums.
You can download the mixtape here. The Book of David drops April 19.
