AllMusic Review by AllMusic

Compton native DJ Quik was part of the West Coast gangsta heyday of the early '90s, and his 1991 debut, Quik Is the Name, was a crucial contribution to the scene. Quik became a notable producer in the early 2000s, and 2006's Greatest Hits: Live at the House of Blues shows all aspects of the artist's talents. The set includes old-school Quik classics ("Tonight," "Born and Raised in Compton") alongside later material, showcasing the DJ/MC's facility with arrangements as well as his skills on the mic. Appearances by Chingy, Nate Dogg, B-Real, and a 12-piece band add icing to the cake.
