Out of stock


A new album from Gang Starr is no joke, 16 years on from the last after Guru’s passing in 2010. With DJ Premier on the beats, you need not question the quality spilling out of the speakers throughout this powerful return from one of hip-hop’s holy grails. The spots showing some of the late Guru’s skills act as a bittersweet reminder of his lyrical gift and that voice, but the space he left behind is amply filled out by a hit list of guest spots on the mic. MOP, Q-Tip, Jeru The Damaja, Talib Kweli – as if any of these legends would pass up the chance to lend their bars to this late entry from hip-hop royalty.
