DJ Quik & Suga Free
One of the premier West Coast gangsta rap artists of the early '90s, DJ Quik was a rapper as well as a producer whose career carried on well into the next decade, as he put his career aside and began working primarily as a beat-maker. Born David Martin Blake on January 18, 1970, in Compton, CA, DJ Quik made a name for himself on the mixtape circuit during the late '80s, compiling tapes also featuring fellow rappers AMG, 2nd II None, and Hi-C. On the basis of these mixtapes, he was signed to Priority Records and made his album debut with Quik Is the Name (1990), on which he produced all the tracks (as he would on each of his solo albums) as well as rapper. Quik Is the Name proved quite successful, spawning two hits ("Tonite," "Born and Raised in Compton") and going platinum. Throughout the remainder of the '90s, DJ Quik released three further albums — Way 2 Fonky (1992), Safe & Sound (1995), Rhythm-al-ism (1998) — that were fairly successful, each going gold, yet none proved as popular as his debut. When his fifth album, Balance & Options (2000), failed to show a substantial improvement in sales, he was dropped by Arista (which had taken over Profile). His next album, Under tha Influence (2002), distributed by Universal, failed to resurrect his commercial standing. Again without a major-label deal, DJ Quik proceeded to form his own label, Mad Science Recordings, via which he released Trauma (2005) and Greatest Hits Live at the House of Blues (2006), and also, in 2005, re-released Under tha Influence. In addition to his solo career, DJ Quik kept busy as a producer, beginning in 1991 on the debut albums by 2nd II None (2nd II None) and Hi-C (Skanless). In subsequent years he contributed productions to albums by AMG (Bitch Betta Have My Money, 1992), Penthouse Players Clique (Paid the Cost, 1992), Tony! Toni! Tone! (House of Music, 1996), 2Pac (All Eyez on Me, 1996), the Luniz (Lunitik Muzik, 1997), Suga Free (Street Gospel, 1997), Jermaine Dupri (Life in 1472, 1998), Deborah Cox (One Wish, 1998), Shaquille O'Neal (Respect, 1998), King T (Thy Kingdom Come, 1998), Snoop Dogg (No Limit Top Dogg, 1999), Mausberg (Non Fiction, 2000), 8Ball & MJG (Space Age 4 Eva, 2000), Xzibit (Restless, 2000), Kurupt (Space Boogie: Smoke Oddessey, 2001), Talib Kweli (Quality, 2002), Truth Hurts (Truthfully Speaking, 2002), Jay-Z (The Black Album, 2003), Jadakiss (The Kiss of Death, 2004), and Ludacris (Red Light District, 2004), among many others.

In less than six years, she has sold over 15 million albums and over 45 million singles. Her videos have generated over a billion views on Youtube. She has three Grammy Awards and was Billboards Digital Songs Artist of the 2000s. She is, Rihanna. Now embarking on her fourth tour, Rihanna has firmly cemented her place in popular music history. Check out the latest Rihanna tour dates posted right here at Eventful.
Born and raised in Barbados, the young superstar had her eyes set firmly on stardom from a very early age. Long before those Rihanna tour dates had the star selling out massive venues worldwide, she proved her determination to make it big by leaving her native Barbados, and moving to the U.S. At the age of just 16, Rihanna auditioned for none other than Jay-Z, and subsequently went on to sign with his label. In 2007, the partnership led to the release of their worldwide smash, Umbrella. The single reigned at the top of the U.K charts for an astonishing 10 weeks and remains a fan-favorite at all Rihanna tour dates.
Showcasing her distinctive blend of R&B and Caribbean music, as well as high energy performances and unique stage outfits, Rihanna tour dates are some of the most in-demand events on the popular music circuit today. With fans in all four corners of the globe, the schedule of Rihanna tour dates has the star performing everywhere from the U.S and Canada right across to Ireland, the U.K, Europe, Asia and Australia.
When the young star isnt busy traveling the globe for those much-anticipated Rihanna tour dates, she is heavily involved in fundraising efforts for her own Believe Foundation which seeks to help children with terminal illnesses. Additionally, in 2008, Rihanna collaborated with other major stars such as Beyonc, Mariah Carey, Fergie and Carrie Underwood on a charity single–the theme song for the 'Stand Up to Cancer' anti-cancer campaign. Indeed, Rihanna's philanthropic efforts have been recognized by many within the arts and entertainment worlds. Rihanna is also a cultural ambassador for her home country of Barbados.
With a new set of Rihanna tour dates kicking off later this year, youll want to stay informed on when shes coming to a venue near you. Make Eventful YOUR source for all the latest news and up-to-date information on Rihanna tour dates in 2011 and beyond.

HEADHUNTERZ.COM | @DJHEADHUNTERZ
Just four years after his official debut Headhunterz has claimed a top position in the world of dance music. Rising from the rapidly expanding hard dance scene he has entered the DJ MAG top 100 at an amazing 17th place. This remarkable feat comes after a series of acclaimed mainstage performances, two albums, numerous releases and several chart topping anthe
ms. On top of his musical career comes a strong character which echoes through in a massive following on the web and making him a most wanted subject for autographs and fan messages.
And it did not take a lot of effort to change into the artist he currently is. Making career as a voice actor, songwriter and following the Rock Academy he presented a big challenge for other artists to follow. Right from the start he revolutionized the way of performing on stage and introduced his signature headphone position. It will not be far from the truth to actually claim he was born for this line of work.
As the first of a new batch of hard dance artists he premiered with his own sublabel at the world renowned Scantraxx Recordz named Scantraxx Reloaded where he immediately released a series of hit records. Among his greatest pieces of work are Rock Civilization, Power Of The Mind (Qlimax 2007 anthem), The Sacrifice, Scrap Attack (Defqon.1 Festival 2009 anthem), From Within and Save Your Scrap for Victory (Defqon.1 Festival Australia 2010 anthem).
Together with fellow producer Wildstylez he created quite a stir in the international dance community with the 2008 Project One campaign. By producing a highly successful studio album in under three months they set new standards and confirmed their abilities as musicians. The tour following the release was much asked for internationally and by setting the limit to just five performances it drove the demand to new heights. In 2010 the second album Studio Sessions created an equally big impact and was followed by a new international tour which included the US, Australia, Russia, Canada and several big editions in Holland.
Amongst his greatest appearances are performances at various editions of Qlimax, Defqon.1 Festival (closing the mainstage in 2009) and Decibel Outdoor Festival. Having the honor of performing solo at the Headhunterz branded X-Qlusive event in 2010 can be considered the highlight of his career. For 2011 a new series of mainstage performances await and every spare moment is used to complete his new studio album with co-productions by the Noisecontrollers, Psyko Punkz and Zatox. With the ever growing hard dance scene expanding all over the world Headhunterz is destined to be on the forefront.
