DJ Quik – “Pet Sematary” (Stereogum Premiere)

The great Compton rapper/producer DJ Quik returns next month with his funkily adventurous new album The Midnight Life, and we’ve already posted the first single “That Getter” and the Suga Free/Dom Kennedy collab “Life Jacket.” The latest track that Quik has shared is “Pet Sematary,” which has slick ’80s roller-disco sonics and Quik sneering hard at everyone who ever doubted him. I can’t think another rapper whose music can sound so warm and friendly even when he’s talking very specific violence. Listen to the track below.

The Midnight Life is out 10/14 on Mad Science Recordings.
