“The DJ’s name is Premier and I’m the GURU”
That’s how Guru introduced Gang Starr on “Step In The Arena”. It’s as simple as that, but the combination of those 2 individuals created some explosive chemistry and a lot of classic Hip-Hop. Guru passed away in 2010, but DJ Premier is definitely keeping the Gang Starr legacy alive. With this mix, I wanted to pay tribute to both of them, not only to Guru and not only to DJ Premier, but to Gang Starr as a group. One of my favorite groups in Hip-Hop that is. I included all of my personal favorite Gang Starr tracks and left out all of the solo projects (as the title says, it’s strictly G.A.N.G. to the STARR son!)
I gotta admit, as an 80’s baby discovering Hip-Hop in the 90’s, the “Moment Of Truth” album is my s**t! So I can’t deny its heavy influence on the mix, but trust me, there’s a lot of other stuff in there!
