Arista/BMG Heritage is planning a Nov. 19 release for "The Best of DJ Quik," a 19-track overview of the Compton, Calif.-bred gangsta rap progenitor's decade-long career. The compilation will include two exclusive new tracks alongside songs taken from Quik's six albums, including "Under tha Influence" (Euponic), released earlier this year.

"Streetz Iz Callin'" and "Quik's Groove VII" are newly recorded tracks put to tape in September. They will augment such older Quik cuts as "Tonite and "Born and Raised in Compton" from 1991's "Quik Is the Name" (Profile); "Jus Lyke Compton" from 1992's "Way 2 Fonky" (Profile) album; "Summer Breeze" and the title track from 1994's "Safe & Sound" (Profile); "Hand in Hand" from 1997's "Rhythm-Al-Ism" (Arista); and "Pitch in Ona Party" from 2000's "Balance & Options" (Arista).

"Under tha Influence" is represented by the cut "Trouble" featuring AMG. The album, which debuted at No. 27 on The Billboard 200 in June, has sold 138,000 copies in the U.S. to date according to Nielsen SoundScan, and was included on the preliminary "long list" for the second annual Shortlist Prize for Artistic Achievement in Music.

Quik has also scored hits in recent years as a producer, including Truth Hurts' "Addictive" featuring Rakim (Interscope), which peaked in June at No. 9 on Billboard's Hot 100.
