Two vets stretch each others' boundaries as far as possible
2009 | Label: Fontana South

The title is a deliberate echo of another hip-hop team-up, Method Man and Redman, but where that duo's Blackout! worked because of its casual bonhomie, this tour de force stretched its makers' boundaries as far as possible. Quik's beats have more variety, spice, glee, and plain snap than ever, from the bent orchestration of "Do You Know" to the R.

Just like the similarly titled 2009 album from Method Man and Redman, DJ Quik and Kurupt’s Blaqkout is a throwback triumph that succeeds thanks to the hip-hop veterans’ superior chemistry and informal attitude. Anyone expecting a courageous game changer will be disappointed by all the swaggering, sexual bragging, and irresponsible pimping the duo frontload onto the effort, but coming to terms with the overall weekend attitude is quick and easy, thanks to rock-solid hooks and Quik’s production. On “Ohh!” he creates a head-bobbing backing track out of chopped-up vocals and smooth jazz keyboards, offering a G-Funk alternative to Timbaland’s “Indian Flute.” Key track “Do You Know” finds him blending blissed-out ambience and a Soul II Soul hook, but “F**k Y’All” employs Quik’s classic formula with that West Coast funk over thumping bass. Doggpound member Kurupt shines on the latter track, summing up the album’s reckless gangsta attitude with “I’m gonna slap him like the bitch that he is/Then I’m gonna turn around and slap the bitch that he with.” – David Jeffries
