DJ Quik is a West Coast legend when it comes to production, so any opinion he has about the sonics of anyone behind the boards is worth noting.
The Compton native recently sat down with Noah TV and gave his opinion about Kanye West’s most recently released album The Life Of Pablo. He believes ‘Ye has too many people to please and it’s affecting his overall judgement when it comes to what kind of music he wants to release.
“Kanye so scared he don’t know what the f*ck to do with The Life of Pablo,” he said, referring to the numerous versions of the album Kanye’s dropped since its initial release in February. “Let’s just keep this sh*t all the way 100.”
Quik also had a few harsh words about how his involvement with the Kardashian family has clouded his mind, which he believes in turn has affected the quality of music Yeezy’s put out there.
“So his celebrity supercedes his talent right now,” Quik said. “He’s a Kardashian now, what the f*ck? This is a challenge, not a diss. Make your best music, the fans are not stupid.”
Damn. With Wiz Khalifa recently saying that Yeezy isn’t jumping over Jumpman, the ‘Ye jabs are in full effect out here. Do you agree that Kanye West’s most recent work isn’t his best? Let us know in the comment section and check out the full interview segment about him below.
