Killer Dope – DJ Quik Lyrics

Note – The italics are lyrics that I’m unsure of and know is likely incorrect, but it sounds like it. The (…) are words or lyrics where I have no idea at all. If you can improve these lyrics, please comment (on this or facebook) so I can change it. Thanks.

How come y’all niggas bitter, hating so much
You want to be up in my hair but you can’t clean your brush
Shit evaporate, you just exacerbate
What makes my sex life great and you got to masturbate
Your hair has fallen out, my hair is growing in
I put my hair in curls and put yours in the garbage bin
Then play piano on stage, live when I rhyme,
And you niggas can’t even bounce and rap on time (I think I got it)
I bet Eazy-E is turning over in his grave
To see that some of y’all that made gangster rap gay (Gay)
I got a brand new HK, and I sniper practice each and every day (OK)
My mama’s conversations on the phone’s short with me (Mother)
I think she wants to have a heart to heart with me
I told her I would kill you niggas smartfully
I’m the star player, you can’t start for me

Play that Quik shit, and get ‘em all sparked
Everywhere from Aard Park down to Carver Park
I keep it avenue, I’m bringing brothers hope
Liquid change colours, that’s that killer dope
The street never changes, only faces do
Every several years, it replaces you
I get the people loaded, when they can’t cope
Put me on the burner, got that killer dope

I be all precision like the Temptations men, before Paul Williams’ replacement stint
Or rehabilitation with the name is, my drinking situation is the same as his
Attention deficit cause I don’t pay you none
I got the word before you came in, they say you done
Trying to fix your pockets with some broken tools
You run a broken school, full of broken fools
Now go and clean out your desk
Take your name plaque with you while they clean out the rest
I’m the new executive movement I’m beating my chest
And I’m a mess, I digress
That I’m too mature for the job I got, too young for the one I want
Two won when my cards go flop, give all my homeboys a blunt
‘Cause the point is, two spliffs or double jointed
Now let’s all go get high on my enemy’s supply


I gotta be simply one of the greatest, one of the hardest
One of the smartest, one of the brightest
One of the ones who helped start all this
Some niggas eating simply because I chose to be an artist
Way back when I was homeless, way back when I was carless
Way back when my sisters used to kick me out their apartments
They back with their hands out, but they made me so heartless
I don’t even put cans out, I ain’t trying to donate
I ain’t giving you bitches loans, this ain’t no fucking bank
I ain’t no house nigga, like-
If this is UAC music then what makes this so awful
I’m back with the strap in my lap, I’m back in the hood with the gat
I’m back with the drink in my trunk, don’t think so I’ll drink till I’m drunk
I’m back in the kitchen, slow roasting a lesson
And I play my own piano, don’t call y’all for no sessions
I’m a threat and a blessing, known to keep cowards stressing
While I’m relaxing at the shooting range releasing aggression
Now tell me how you want it


Shouts goes out, to myself, I love me, DJ Quik, fuck the world.

  1. Thanks for putting these lyrics up! You seem to be the only person online who has them. This is a great track and I’m surprise more people don’t know it.

    I spotted a few errors (or maybe I’m wrong in some of them, it’s hard to tell). Anyway, hope these are helpful:

    “And you niggas can’t even bounce A RAP on time”

    “Play that QUIK shit, and get ‘em all sparked”

    “I be ON precision like the TEMPTATIONS men [he’s referring to the band The Temptations and their synchronized dance routines], before Paul WILLIAMS’ REPLACEMENT stint”


    “I’m back in the kitchen, slow ROASTIN a lesson”

    “I’m a threat and a blessing, known to keep COWARDS stressing”

    • Cheers for a lot of these. I still think “bounce and rap on time” is correct as most rappers ‘bounce’ or jump to the beat etc.

      “All precision” makes more sense grammatically than “on precision”. Unless Precision is the name of a TV show?

      I’m not sure if it’s “Rehabilitation with the name is” or “Rehabilitation’s what the name is”, but I’ll keep it as it is only because he says “is the same as his” after that. Kind of suggesting the former.

      But thanks for the rest, changes made!

  2. Oops, just seeing this response now!

    Glad you found my suggestions helpful. You may be right about the ones you kept, it’s definitely hard to tell what he’s saying on those lines.

    I really wish I could figure out “Aard Park”. That name doesn’t bring up any hits on Google (except for this page!) so I’m thinking it must be something else. But no idea what it could be.

    This track is too underappreciated, it should be much better known. Hopefully your page can help get the word out.

    – Jason
