(GEMS RADIO)–DJ Quik, one of the legendary rappers from the 90s, says his mother stopped him from joining Suge Knight the day 2Pac was shot. DJ Quik revealed this in a rare interview with the Los Angeles Times published on Tuesday, March 15th. The magazine interviewed him on his hip-hop career and his upcoming album David VS Goliath.

His Mother Threatened To Shoot Suge

The rapper reflected on the night Tupac Shakur was murdered at a Las Vegas intersection after leaving the MGM Grand where Mike Tyson had a fight. The DJ revealed that his mother stopped him from leaving with Suge the same night.

“My mom was so gangster,” said Quik. “She made Suge and them leave when they tried to get me to come with them to the Tyson fight that night. She said, ‘If y’all don’t get away from my muthafuckin’ door I’m gonna start blastin’. I’mma call the police first then shoot y’all in y’all muthaf**kin’ ass.’ She had all the guns.”

DJ Quik lived at a time in the 90s when the West Coast-East Coast rivalry was at its peak. Rappers died of gun violence regularly.

DJ Quik On Snoop Buying Death Row

“I was just in the studio with Mustard. I’m so proud of him and YG. They listened to us when we were younger. And we weren’t the best role models. We drank and smoked weed. Now I take mushrooms — I micro-dose. But I’m proud of these guys: 1500 or Nothin’. Rance. Brody. Terrace Martin. Kamasi Washington. Thundercat. Kendrick, Ali, and Dre. Snoop just bought Death Row.”

DJ Quik continued, “The old Snoop bought the young Snoop’s work. He didn’t let it keep changing hands with other people eating off of him. Now he can eat off of what we call his “stick man” — his incorporation. He incorporates Death Row, he incorporates himself. He becomes the master of his destiny for his catalog, Dr. Dre’s catalog and 2Pac’s catalog. It was the smartest thing. What better fairy-tale ending?”
