DJ Quik and Kurupt 

Wednesday, Jun 10 2009

DJ Quik and Kurupt are longtime friends who first met during the recording of Dr. Dre's groundbreaking 1992 album, The Chronic. They've occasionally worked together over the years, but have only recently formed a solid musical partnership. Their first collaborative album, BlaQKout, was released June 9, and is a surprisingly upbeat fusion of Kurupt's tongue-twisting verbals and Quik's avant-garde beats, which sample Soul II Soul and a Moroccan episode of the Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
