Rumours of new music from Guru and Premier – their first fresh material in 16 years – were sparked this week, when Preemo posted a video of a voicemail from Nas, in which the NY rapper said he heard that a new Gang Starr album was being prepared. Then a couple of days later, this new track emerged, sending the online rap community into meltdown. The track touches on subjects that seem all the more poignant given the circumstances. It is definitely a positive to hear something previously unheard from the legendary duo and the addition of J Cole is a nice touch, but it does feel like something is lacking from the finished product. Maybe it’s just the underlying sadness of knowing Guru’s gone, that taints my enjoyment, but it is still a new Gang Starr track and that is something I’m thankful for.

Bars everywhere as Preemo drops a weighty new track featuring Griselda favourites, Conway, Westside Gunn and Benny, via Payday Records.

Great bonus track from Masta Ace and Marco Polo, a continuation of their 2018 album, A Breukelen Story. E.A.T also features a guest verse from Evidence and production from Premier, marking his and Ace’s first collaboration together. The track is available to stream below and you can cop a download over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

Evidence follows up his 2011 collaboration with DJ Premier, with the latest track to be lifted from his forthcoming Weather or Not LP. 10,000 Hours is the third single from the album and the video was directed by Evidence’s frequent collaborator, Stephen Vanasco. The album is due for release on 26 January on Rhymesayers. Pre-orders are available here.

Just going to casually post this like it ain’t no thing. Yes it is the brand new Dilated Peoples video, which is released a massive eight years after their last album dropped. Read the rest of this entry »
