8/2/16 – Gang Starr – Full Clip

My head has been on a crazy hip hop kick lately. Due to a colleague and friend of mine that hangs out in our DJ room, I’ve recently started going back and listening to a lot of old school ’90s rap. Gang Starr was one of my favorites back then, I love Guru’s voice and DJ Premier’s tracks are still top tier even by today’s standards.

Gang Starr has also been in my head a bit due to the recent news that all of the episodes of the upcoming Netflix/Marvel series Luke Cage will be named after Gang Starr songs, which is absolutely awesome. I can’t wait to see what “You know my Steez” is about.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Last time I heard it: Last week in the aforementioned DJ room

Honorable mention today goes out to “Oh No” by Mos Def, Nate Dogg and Pharoahe Monch. At first I woke up with Mos Def’s line “I’m harder to y’all because I’m smarter than y’all” but Full Clip was the first that coalesced into an actual song.

What do you think?
