Hip-hop star DJ Quik has had a $50,000 (GBP30,000) warrant issued for his arrest, after he allegedly barged into his sister's house and repeatedly punched her in the face.

The BORN AND RAISED IN COMPTON rapper is charged with burglary and assault following the incident on 2 November (03) in the San Bernadino district of Los Angeles.

Prosecutors allege Quik - real name DAVID MARTIN BLAKE - entered his sister's property with at least two other men while the 42-year-old was asleep.

The unnamed woman told police Blake made comments about family problems before assaulting her, while one of her two children alleged Quik was carrying a gun.
