Quik (formerly DJ Quik) and AMG, two Compton-based West Coast rap veterans, teamed up in late 2006 to form the Fixxers, an outlet for the pair as MCs and producers. Since striking big with "Bitch Betta Have My Money" in 1991, AMG had recorded sporadically as a solo artist, while he appeared on numerous tracks headlined by others -- a few of which were produced by Quik. While Quik released solo albums with greater frequency, he also became increasingly respected (if not recognized nearly enough) for his work behind the boards, collaborating with a wide range of MCs and singers, including 8Ball & MJG, Jay-Z, Jadakiss, Ludacris, Janet Jackson, Christopher Williams, and Whitney Houston. As the Fixxers, Quik and AMG signed with Interscope and preceded their first full-length in early 2007 with the stripped-down club single "Can You Werk wit Dat?" ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
