This DATE in Hip Hop (20 years ago)

R.I.P. Guru

Gang Starr- Step In The Arena:  On January 15, 1991, Gang Starr released their second album.  On this album, DJ Premier slows down the pace of the beats and tempos which fit perfectly with Guru’s monotone flow.  Both the MC and the DJ showed exactly why they belong in the Hip Hop Hall Of Fame.  Guru was on another level and ahead of his time with his lyrics and Premier on point with every track.  I must admit that I first got into Gang Starr because of Moment Of Truth….but when I went back to this album, I thought it was classic material.  Guru was an amazing MC who needed NO special guests on this album and DESTROYED every beat with ease. 

Production on the album was done by DJ Premier and Guru.

A rare “No Skip” album….with tracks like “Step In The Arena”, “Execution Of A Chump”, “Just To Get A Rep”, “Precisely The Right Rhymes”, and “Who’s Gonna Take The Weight?” to name a few….my favorite track has to be:  Click here for FAVORITE TRACK

Rah Digga – Straight Spittin’ 4.5 (Prod. By Marco Polo)


“The spitting’s comprehensive/ Y’all wordplay’s senseless/ I’m spitting every sentence, not knowing where the end is/ I’m spitting, spitting, spitting, ’till there ain’t no more remnants/ They saying, What’s Next? I’m saying, Back to the beginning.”
