In 1990, Quik made his debut with the album ‘Quik is the Name’ after he had signed with Priority Records. The album was a hit as it not only went on to be platinum, but further contributed to generate another set of blockbusters i.e. Tonite and Born and Raised in Compton. However, this was not enough for Quik – he released three back-to-back albums: ‘Way 2 Fonky’ (1992), ‘Safe and Sound’ (1995), and ‘Rhythm- al- ism’ (1998).
