DJ Quik Headed to Prison

One of the most successful artists over the last 15 years is headed to jail for a five-month sentence.

David Marvin Blake, better known as DJ Quik surrendered to police in a Fontana Superior Court last week to being serving the sentence. This is in response to an incident from 2003, when Quik pulled a gun on his sister during a family argument, based on police reports.

Last year, the rapping producer was ordered to spend 45 days in jail on weekends after pleading guilty to the assault, but he never served his sentence. His avoidance resulted in a violation of his probation causing the judge in the case, Judge Keith Davis to increase his jail time for the original charge, to 150 consecutive days, ordering the time tom be served immediately.

Quik most recently worked with Chamillionaire on the West Coast Remix to "Ridin Dirty" and is dropping a new live album from his impressive shows at the sold out, Greatest Hits Live at the House of Blues series, a 20-song album that he recorded back in February of this year. Chingy, B-Real and Nate Dogg are also featured on the album with a 12-piece band.

Quik surrendered to San Bernadino County authorities earlier today and is currently in custody, ready to serve the 150-day stay.
