Gang Starr “One of the Best Yet” LP Out now

DJ Premier has blown the lid off the new Gang Starr album. Titled One Of The Best Yet, the historic project is a 16-track trip down memory lane with the late Guru’s unmistakable voice peppering every track.

The album, which has been years in the making, boasts a healthy amount of notable guest features, including Q-Tip, Royce Da 5’9, J. Cole, Talib Kweli and M.O.P.

“This album means everything to me,” Preemo said in a press release. “It’s a continuation of what I never wanted to end. It’s a very foreign place for me and very emotional. I get happy, sad, excited; my feelings are kind of all over the place. But predominantly, just very happy to be making music with Guru again.”

Check out Gang Starr’s One Of The Best Yet stream, cover art and tracklist below.

    THE LEGACY WILL NEVER END!!!!!!!!!!!! Incredible performances on here. Favs are the Royce track, Talib, Nitty and the title track of course. The scratches… to this day inimitably Preemo, like a fingerprint. Guru is in top form here as well, even into the 00’s you can hear he never once adopted any other ‘current’ styles or otherwise, he just kept refining his own style. The chorus in Business or Art is just magic, his voice and wit are iconic

    I remember buying the Step in The Arena tape when it came out then seeing a friend at the bus terminal and showing it to him. That was the album that put Guru/Preemo Gang Starr on the map and a few years later Preem developed his signature sound while Guru’s god-given ‘Jazz voice’ pioneered Jazz influenced Hip-Hop. Was a treat to watch back then and an blessing to see today : )
