Editorial Reviews

EXPLICIT. 2009 collaboration between the two Rap icons. DJ Quik has scanned over 3.5 million units throughout his illustrious 15 year career. He has produced some of Urban music's most recognizable artists including 2Pac, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri. On Blaqkout, he teams up with another West Coast legend, Kurupt, who has been a mainstay of the Rap game. As a member of Tha Dogg Pound and as a solo artist, Kurupt has scanned almost three million units.

Customer Reviews

The beat is excellent and Kurupt's flow sounds great over this track, he does his thing on this classic.
fmwaalex
From track 1 to 7 (except the filler track "Watcha Wan Do") the album is nearly perfect, but after that they just having fun, to bad we're not.
Real Talk
I emphasize 'purchase' because rarely do fans buy music there days, but the quality of this music makes this a must buy.

I'm coming to this album as a mild fan of each artist. Kurupt of 1992-2000 was an amazing lyricist, however the Kurupt of 2000 and onward is not the same man. And truthfully, even before 2000, his best work was always as a part of the Dogg Pound with Daz Dillinger, while his solo projects showed his inability to survive on his with illogical or just down right poor lyrics. Quik on the other hand, has always been one of the best, most underrated producers in the game, however he too is not much of a lyricist. Unlike Kurupt though, I'd say his lyrics have gotten better with time.

Now this project actually does a damn good job hiding each rappers' weakness in two ways. First, neither one has to be a solo artist. Second, it's relatively short. These factors combined mean neither Quik nor Kurupt is stretching himself too thin lyrically. The verses they drop are hot for the most part. This album is a good example of "quality, over quantity". Any longer and I think we would've heard one or both rappers run out of lyrical steam.

However, it would've been even better had they cut it down to an E.P. "The B Stands For Beautiful" is an unnecessary interlude. "Watca Wan Do", both versions, are my least favorite songs on the album. "Jupiter's Critic and the Mind of Mars" and "9xs Outta 10" are solo songs and not entirely necessary on this project. In fact, Kurupt's nonsense lyrics actually start to sneak into "9xs Outta 10". He rhymes "Run it up" with "Run it up" and "Running up" at one point. Quik's vocorder raps on "Jupiter" are amusing, but the vocorder itself makes it kind of difficult to listen to more than once. "Exodus", I suppose, is in the style of a Quik's Groove-type instrumental track, though it has some vocals on it, but it too seems misplaced on this album.

DJ Quik and Kurupt are amazing. This joint was worth the wait.

Since 1991, Quik has been representin' the West Coast with superior production and lyricism. Consider his albums: "Quik is the Name," "Way 2 Fonky," "Safe + Sound," "Rhythm-al-ism," "Balance and Options," "Under tha Influence," and "Trauma."

Kurupt is another exceptional West Coast talent, albeit not as popular as Quik. Consider his albums: "Kuruption!," "Tha Streetz is a Mutha," "Space Boogie: Smoke Oddessey," and others. (I'm not as familiar with Kurupt...but I will be after I buy his albums.)

This collaboration is a welcome breath of fresh air. Neither talent dominates; both rappers deliver the goods equally. (This ain't a Quik album and it ain't a Kurupt album; it's uniquely Quik and uniquely Kurupt.)

Quik produces some amazing beats. This is some of his best production work. Quik seems to find the right balance between poppy, commercial hooks and underground, West Coast gangsta s---. He delivers smoothly on the mic.

What about Kurupt? He delivers too. Like I said, both deliver the goods equally. Like Quik, Kurupt shines brilliantly.

Quik and Kurupt give us a good variety. The titular track, "BlaQKout," is the perfect opening track. "Do You Know" and "Hey Playa (Moroccan Blues)" are immaculate, head-bobbing anthems. "9 Times Outta 10" isn't a head-bobber--it's a neck-breaker.

Perhaps the standout track is "F--- Y'all." It's pure, West Coast gangsta rap.

I enjoyed every minute of this joint. (In fact, I wanted more.) Like Quik's "Trauma," this joint is way too short. (And that's my only complaint...the short running time.)

David Martin Blake and Ricardo Emmanuel Brown are masters in the rap game.

One final thought: when will Quik and Devin the Dude join forces? (That would be a collaboration album for the ages.)

Very strong album overall with 8-10 very good songs and the other 4-6 not very good at all...overall very satisfied, however, would have liked to have seen some bigger names featured on the album...surprised they did not get any Snoop, Dr. Dre, or Daz Dillinger featured tracks...Bees to the honey my favorite track and probably a viable radio hit...

I'm a huge and long time fan of the Quikster since Born & Raised debuted back in 1990. Quik is the King of the West Coast and in my opinion a much better producer than Dre. Dre is good but Quik is consistent and keeps the West Coast poppin' with music that keeps the lowriders cruising, plus he doesn't wait a decade to maybe put out a cd (Dre - is Detox ever coming out????)

As for this album, I was dissappointed that I couldn't give it 5 stars. The production is tight and there are some banging beats, especially tracks #3 & #5. Quik & Kurupt both laid down some great lyrics BUT the cd is just too short. For two great rappers collaborating together I was expecting longer tracks. A good example is #9 - "9xOutta 10" was good but could have been excellent had Quik actually had a complete verse to give the song a little bit more length. The cd also could have done without track(s) #8 and #13(the song wasn't that good to warrant a remix)

Overall I like the cd for what it is - I collaboration showcasing Kurupt's lyrical abilities and Quik's ever consistent excellent production. It is definitely worth owning. I look forward to Quik putting out another album in the future bringing his crew of 2ndIINone, AMG & Hi-C, James DeBarge - this album seemed a bit weird in their absence.
