There are many events in rap history that are either unknown or forgotten, from album releases to deaths to random ass events most of us can't even recall. As an attempt to remember those moments, Complex will share an event that helped shape hip-hop in a sometimes minor, sometimes major way. Join us as we look back on This Day in Rap History.

February 21, 1995

DJ Quik—the rapper/actor/producer triple threat—dropped his classic third album Safe + Sound on February 21, 1995. The record is overwhelmingly steeped in his success with music and women, and Quik delivers funky bars and beats. He's still borrowing from P-Funk, as he announces on the opening track "Street Level Entrance," and it still works—less than a month after its release, Safe + Sound hit the No. 1 spot on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
