DJ Quik stepped into the world of music at the age of 2 – David’s mother was from a musical background and therefore he was an effortless player of musical instruments by the age of 12, and amused himself compiling mixtapes, after which there was no looking back. In 1990, Quik made his debut with the album ‘Quik is the Name’ after he had signed with Priority Records. The album was a hit as it not only went on to be platinum, but further contributed to generate another set of blockbusters i.e. Tonite and Born and Raised in Compton. However, this was not enough for Quik – he released three back-to-back albums: ‘Way 2 Fonky’ (1992), ‘Safe and Sound’ (1995), and ‘Rhythm- al- ism’ (1998). All these works had a big hand behind the net worth that he was building.

Quik not only did well being a rapper and releasing albums, but also became a producer. His debut project was ‘2nd II None’ and ‘Hi-C’ (Scanless), and he went on to produce many more projects by- ‘AMG’, ‘Penthouse Players’, ‘Tony! Toni! Tone!’, ‘2 Pac’, ‘The Luniz’, ‘Jermaine Dupri’, ‘Deborah Cox’, ‘Shaquille O’Neal’, ‘Snoop Dogg’, ‘Mausberg’, ‘Jay-Z’ and his experiences are never-ending Later he only picked work for established artists and produced only selective stuff. Regardless, his net worth steadily increased.

His studio gave the world some of the best music pieces like, ‘Quik is the Name’, ‘Safe + Sound’, ‘Balance & Options’, ‘Under the Influence’, ‘Trauma’, ‘The Book of David’, ‘The Midnight Life’, ‘Live at the House of Blues’ etc.

As an actor, DJ has appeared in a variety of films, including ‘Keeping up with the Steins’, ‘Malice in Wonderland’, ‘Method & Red’, ‘Entourage’, ‘Everybody Hates Chris’ among others. He has also been recognized for his other work, being awarded the Biggest Celebrity DJ in the year 2012. He was also nominated in 1992 for Favorite Rap/ Hip Hop Artist at the American Music Awards.

In his personal life, DJ Quik has been married to Alicia Hill since 2005, and they have two children. Following a difficult childhood, including his mother losing her house, Quik’s life has been brimful with the hard work, which has rightly brought him success – there is no reason why his net worth shouldn’t continue to build.
