Fat Joe Talks Gang Starr

“It feels like Gang Starr is the purest group in hip-hop,” Joe declared. “They was shooting videos on the beach in the winter when the water was ice. Razor-blade music. A bunch of guys in front of the project steps. ‘Mass Appeal,’ ‘Dwyck.’ ‘Stick up kids just out to tax … ‘ It’s just so much, man. When [Guru] passed, and I’m hearing all these rumors, I just wanna kill everybody. I want to shoot the computer, ’cause I’m like, ‘No, this ain’t what we do when our legends, our icons, pass. We salute them. We don’t go for rumors; we salute these dudes.’ He was an icon, man. It’s the purest group in hip-hop, in my opinion. DJ Premier, this guy is like a god, a walking god. Guru, he put it down legendary.

“Preemo, I was waiting for Preemo to give me a ‘Ten Crack Commandments’ or a shoot ‘em up, bang bang,” he continued, recalling his expectations when he got the track for “I’m Gone.” “He sent me the beat when Guru died — the day Guru died. It was a somber … sad beat. I was like, ‘Ah, man.’ I knew where to go with it. It really troubled me and I knew Guru passed away. I knew Preemo was hurting; I been through that with Pun. I knew how it felt. I had to pay homage and salute.”
