As a wiki, David Marvin Blake is better known by his stage name, DJ Quik who was born on January 18, 1970, in Pomona, California and his age is 47. His height is 5 feet and 11 inches and 6 feet tall with shoes.
His ethnicity is black. He is an American rapper, DJ, record producer, and actor. According to Quik himself, his stage name reflects his ability to produce records in a short period.
He was chiefly inspired by funk and soul artists such as Roger Troutman (who even taught him the use o the talkbox, which became a trademark for Quik’s sound throughout his career) and Gorge Clinton.
As respect for his beloved friend, Roger Troutman, Quik retired the tall box. Qik’s love for music began at two as his mother had an extensive record collection.
By age of 12, he was already playing instruments, and at 21, he was a platinum-selling artist. He began selling handmade mixtapes after he received a turntable for his 8th-grade graduation and then, began doing shows DJing around Southern California.
He was also a member of the Westside Tree Top Piru Bloods. After leaving high school in grade 11, he was homeless for about a period of three years after he lost his mom.
After gaining a buzz for himself I the streets from his self-made mixtapes, he signed to Profile Records in the summer of 1990. He debuted his album “Quik Is The Name“, in 1991.
The album was led to the success of his two top 20 and R&B songs, “Tonite” and “Borned and Raised in Compton.” None of his successive albums reached the success of his debut, though they have been well received.
It’s one thing to remain true to your roots_- Quik’s have threatened to strangle him because of a series of complicated family crises.
In 2006, he spent months in solitary confinement for assaulting his sister, who he says convinced her children to extort money from him.
In May 2013, Quik’s daughter, Davieanna Marlena Blae, was arrested in Phoenix on first-degree murder charges in the death of her 2-year-old son. Also, arrested was the baby’s father who allegedly badly beat his son after he wet the bed.
It’s a capital case, meaning they could receive the death penalty as the case is scheduled for October 2015.
Well we cannot find any information about Quik’s girlfriend, wife, with whom he has been dating or not even if he is married or divorced. But he is not a gay as rumored.
Quik has an estimated net worth of $2.1 million dollars. He has gained his net worth through his musical biography by being one of the best and quickest rappers in rap history.
Quik is incredibly loved by his fans which can clearly be seen through the big number of his fan following on his social networking sites like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
