Though there were whispers and murmurs over the years, nothing ever panned out and the possibilities of that project being willed into existence seemingly grew more remote as the years passed by.
After Guru tragically passed away in 2010 the hope seemed to vanish altogether. The one person who refused to give up hope was DJ Premier. “I never lost faith, or wavered. I still felt it inside of me, it just happened to be nine years later (after Guru’s passing)” Premier commented. “We all want the things we want right now, but I’m a patient guy. I hung in there and just kept believing.”
It’s the first new Gang Starr album in sixteen-years. Listen to One Of The Best Yet below.
