I remember when this came out… Gang Starr had just come off of Step in the Arena & Daily Operation, so I was thinking that perhaps this wouldn’t measure up. Well, there was nothing to worry about. 20 years later, still sounds fresh.
The folks at UpNorthTrips and NahRight posted an interview with DJ Premier which goes through the making of the album track by track. Great interview which details the history of what was going on as well as some insight into his general production process. The Vinylcologist also did a special mix using instrumentals from the album with the original samples.
Rest in Peace to Guru, the Gang Starr legacy is strong.
