Legendary Hip Hop group Gang Starr have released their highly anticipated new album “One Of The Best Yet”. They put out the track “Family and Loyalty” ahead of the album.
The passing of Guru, the lyrical side of the duo in 2010, left a hole that could not be filled. DJ Premier used unreleased recorded verses from Guru to fill the void. It’s been 16 years since their last album “The Ownerz”, so fans were thrilled to hear that this project was coming to life.
The album has features from J. Cole, Talib Kweli, Q-Tip, Royce Da 5’9″, M.O.P., and others. Preemo was able to make these tracks sound cohesive, as if Guru was there for these amazing collaborations. Guru’s ashes were actually in the studio during the creation of the album. So dope.
It is great to hear Guru again and in fine fashion. This album has a classic feel and captures the essence of Hip Hop.
