Ice Cube: "He's just one of the most talented dudes out here. He's just one of those jacks of all trades—he can play, produce, rap, and perform. He's one of those dudes that do it all. But he was never on the right record label to help capitalize on how good he is. I had a session with Quik one time after he had an accident and a kid got killed. He was just on the piano, sad about it. That's my most vivid memory of Quik."
