Gang Starr is a legendary hip hop group that brought together DJ Premier and the late emcee Guru. Being one of the most decorated and influential rap outfits in history, you can imagine fans’ excitement when a new Gang Starr song dropped. Released as a single, “Family and Loyalty” features J. Cole whose immaculately delivered verse perfectly blends with Guru’s two and chorus. Furthermore, DJ Premier’s production is so slick and emotionally stimulating.
“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). We all want the things we want right now, but I am a patient guy. I hung in there and I just kept believing.”DJ Premier
As per Premier, you need to watch out for the song’s music video. [Update: video is now out, watch below]
