Quik initially unloaded his frustrations on the Doc for Beats Music not featuring his stash.
"There is no DJ QUIK music on the Beatsmusic app. THIS IS PERSONAL AND IM NOT TAKING IT ANYMORE. ITS ON," Quik tweeted June 25.

Hours later, Quik had to swallow his words after realizing he was incorrect.
"MY MUSIC IS ON THE BEATSMUSIC APP. I WAS WRONG.," Quik tweeted June 25. (DJ Quik's Twitter)
Back in January, the music streaming company held a launch partyin Los Angeles.
In front of a very Hollywood-friendly crowd that included Paul McCartney, Selena Gomez, Drake, Macklemore, Universal'sRon Meyer, John Singleton, Brian Grazer, Michael Rapaport and Pink, Beats principle (and Interscope chairman)Jimmy Iovine talked up the curatorial depth of the company's new Spotify competitor, and used the night's performance to demonstrate the concept, presenting a '90s hip-hop Beats "playlist" allegedly curated by Eminem manager Paul Rosenberg, as performed live by the artists themselves.

Music producer DJ Jazzy Jeff also showed up and kept the party going behind the turntable.
Granted, the "playlist" seemed to move in roughly chronological order through the decade, with each artist performing their signature hit, but the show still boasted an almost ludicrously packed bill, cycling through perfs from Beats founder Dr. Dre, Eminem, Ice Cube, Nas, Blackstreet, the Pharcyde, Cypress Hill, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony (whose five members' rapid-fire rhymes proved a bit too much for even an audio company to mix properly), Souls of Mischief, Ma$e, Diddy, Method Man and Redman, the Geto Boys and Busta Rhymes at a rather dizzying pace. DJ Jazzy Jeff led a seven-piece band through each number, with Fab 5 Freddy serving as the night's emcee. (Billboard)
