DJ Quik - Tonite | Insomniacs Club

One of my favorite DJ Quik tracks, "Tonite" samples the same two songs (Kleeer's "Tonight" and Betty Wright's "Tonight is the Night") as 2Pac's Easy Mo Bee-laced "If I Die 2Nite." Quik's "funky composition" came out four years earlier though, on January 1st, 1991 (happy new year, again). "Tonite" was the second single on Quik's debut album, Quik is the Name, which you can cop for just 7 bucks. Looking for an easy introduction to Quik's catalog? Look away from Born And Raised In Compton: The Greatest Hits compilation. Grab this one instead.
