After Guru tragically passed away in 2010 the hope seemed to vanish altogether but the one person who never gave 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 am a patient guy. I hung in there and I just kept believing.”
“Family and Loyalty,” is the first new Gang Starr single in sixteen years. Preem and Guru welcome J. Cole into the Gang Starr family and he puts an exclamation point on “Family and Loyalty.” “J. Cole, who’d a thought you woulda been, rhyming with ghosts, Guru flows forever.” “When it comes to this generation of emcees, ones that are lyrically on the level that Guru was on and someone that he would want to work with; Cole is that guy” Preemo says.
“Family and Loyalty” is a thank you from Gang Starr & J. Cole to fans and the culture that raised them. Gang Starr feat J. Cole “Family and Loyalty” Single is now available for purchase and streaming at your preferred DSP: https://ingroov.es/family-and-loyalty
