Quik, AMG Talk New Group ‘The Fixxers,’ Debut New Material

Veteran Compton, CA rappers Quik (formerly known as DJ Quik) and AMG recently debuted material from their new group, The Fixxers.

The Fixxers performed material from their upcoming debut album, The Midnight Life during a performance Sunday (Mar. 4) at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood.The performance was one in a series of West coast dates that Quik has embarked upon since being released from prison. Quik served a five-month stint in jail for violating the terms of his probation, surrounding the assault of his sister. In June 2006, Quik surrendered to authorities for violating the terms of his probation for an incident in 2003, in which the rapper/producer, born David Blake, pulled a gun on his sister and another man during a heated argument. Quik was originally sentenced to 45 days in jail on the weekends after he pleaded guilty to the assault, but he never served the time. The result was a probation violation, causing Quik’s jail time to be increased to 150 consecutive days behind bars. "The record is sick,” Quik told AllHipHop.com after the performance. "When I first got out of jail, I felt as though my career was over, I was all broke and hungry and sh**, but my accountant opened up my eyes and said that my career is just now beginning.”According to Quik, The Fixxers are halfway through recording The Midnight Life and are looking to land some big name talent to support the project, which is being produced entirely by Quik and AMG. "There are no collabos on the album as of yet," AMG told AllHipHop.com. "We are looking to work with Young Joc and Young Jeezy. We also are putting YoYo back on the map by doing a record with her as well." The Fixxers’ first single "Can You Werk With That" recently hit the net and various radio stations. According to Quik, who recently dropped the "DJ" from his rap name, the album will feature the quality production he is usually associated with. In addition to his album with The Fixxers, Quik has produced records for artists like Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Snoop Dogg, 2Pac, Talib Kweli, Ludacris, Jay-Z and others.“With our new record, we are doing all the work ourselves," Quik said. "Its definitely going to be hot, because we are both perfectionist, and with whatever we do, it has to be nothing but the best. I make everything I do absolute and not relative.” The Midnight Life is slated to hit stores this summer.
