If you’re a ‘90s hip hop fan, then you’re undoubtedly excited about DJ Premier’s Instagram post from this afternoon in which he teases a new Gang Starr album with a voicemail message from Nas. And we shouldn’t really have to explain the group’s connection to skateboarding at this point. What we do know is that you can’t drop an album under that name without Guru vocals; so we’re going to assume that Primo is sitting on some unreleased recordings. If this is the case, then this is easily the most exciting music news to surface this year.
UPDATE 09.21.19: Gang Starr dropped a new track yesterday called “Family & Loyalty” that’s every bit as nice as we anticipated. And, as predicted, Guru delivers posthumous bars that remind us he’s one of the greatest to ever pick up a mic.
