It’s a Yet Another Highly Revealing Edition of ‘The Mix’

As if we ever bring you anything but highly revealing interviews here on BlogTalkRadio.

So there’s little need for hype this week – saying things like “You can’t afford not to tune in,” “You’ll be astounded by what you hear” or “If you don’t tune in, you won’t know about the $1 billion cash prize we may or may not be giving away.”

No. Instead, we’ll just get right to it and tell you that tonight’s edition of The Daily Mix answers such all-important questions as:

—Why his biographer, Lawrence Grobel, says that interviewing Al Pacino for the first time was “like being in a Keystone Cops kind of thing.”

“I go to sit on this very old wicker chair and my ass goes right through it,” Lawrence (left) tells us about his first meeting with Al Pacino, in 1979.

—What actress Cindy Morgan did on the set of Caddy Shack that made the hit flick’s producer “go nuts,” erase her from the credits and black- list her.

—Why rapper DJ Quik calls the music industry “the craziest, scariest thing” he’s ever seen.

—What surprising piece of news about her sexuality Blossom star Mayim Bialik reveals – vis-à-vis Larry David.

—Which talk-show titan Ralph Nader reveals to be his new No. 1 whipping boy.

—Whether Golden Girls star Rue McClanahan ever knew a U.S. president in the biblical sense.

DJ Quik: I’m Not in Jail Now – So Give Me My Money!

He shot to fame in the early ‘90s with R&B singles like Tonite and Born and Raised in Compton.

But by the time 2006 rolled around, DJ Quik was sitting in the big house, serving five months on assault and burglary charges. (In November 2003, he allegedly broke into his sister’s home and threat- ened her at gunpoint.)

“Music has been cheapened,” Quick (above) tells us.

Since that career low-point, the rapper – now known simply as “Quik” – has made quite the comeback. Last year, he produced Snoop Dogg’s Ego Trippin and more recently has been collab- orating with Kurupt of Tha Dogg Pound.

In an exclusive interview with Hip Hop Entrepreneur this week, Quik (whose birth name is David Blake) tells host Tiffany Janay what he has been up to – and why the music biz is frightening the #$%! out of him.

“I’m kickin’ my label off again – Fonatana/Universal. It was stuck in ‘park’ for a minute because I’ve been in jail and couldn’t run a record company,” says the L.A.- based artist.

“But I’m not in jail now, b——. I’m out and we’re about to do it! Give me my money!

“The music industry has been going down gradually since 2000. This is the craziest, scariest thing ever. Because some people have made their living off of their music.  But now, music is not even a commodity anymore. It’s a calling card to do other things.

“But if you use your music as your calling card to sell your brand, then I think you’ll have longevity in this industry.”
