it's, the music that the street love...


"Skills" by Gang Starr is one of the freshest songs I've ever heard.

DJ Premiere's mad breaks and samples along with Guru's natural flow go together so easily to make one of  Hip Hops most successful duos. "Skills" is essentially a song of why not to fuck with Guru and Premiere as the lyrics portray a story of their rise to fame. Also, one of the songs in which Gang Starr solidify their "Mass Appeal" status as one of the greatest in Hip Hop.

R.I.P. GURU

  1. I'm not really the biggest fan of Hip-Hop, but I kind of enjoyed this. I'm always keen to broaden my horizons musically, so is there anything you'd recommend that sounds similar to this?

  2. To this? I would try listening to some Big L, KRS-One's "MC's Act Like They Don't Know", Mobb Deep or maybe even try A Tribe Called Quest. All great artists.
