Net Worth $2.1 Million
DJ Quik obtained his net worth by being considered one of the best, and quickest producers in rap history. Born David Marvin Blake on January 18, 1970, in Compton, California, he entered the world of music in the late ’80s under the stage name DJ Quick that refers to his ability to produce records in a relatively short time. Initially, he compiled self-made mix tapes that featured fellow rappers AMG, 2nd II None and Hi-C. This work helped him sign to Priority Records and made his debut with Quick Is the Name (1990). The album turned out to be a success as it went platinum and spawned two hits: Tonite and Born and Raised in Compton. Throughout the 90′s, he went on to release three more albums: Way 2 Fonky (1992), Safe & Sound (1995), Rhythm-al-ism (1998) – that were also note-worthy, each going gold, yet none being as popular as his debut. Meanwhile, DJ Quick has written, produced, and remixed music for many artists and continued to work on his subsequent albums. But neither of his future releases (Balance and Options (2000), Under tha Influence (2002), Trauma (2005) and The Book of David (2011)) succeeded to resurrect his commercial standing.
