GANG STARR – BAD NAME [VIDEO]

We hope you’re still playing Gang Starr’s One Of The Best Yet at ignorant levels. And while you do that, consume yourself with the visuals for “Bad Name.” With good ol’ Spice Adams dropping by and Guru’s son Keith Casim Elam cutting his hair on camera for the role of his late father, “Bad Name” is an absolute sentimental moment for fans of the legendary duo.

After 15 years, Gang Starr fans can rejoice because a new full-length album with production by DJ Premier and rhymes from the legendary Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal has finally arrived. 16 cuts of freshness from Gang Starr has arrived in the form of the appropriately titled One Of the Best Yet. Containing sixteen tracks of pure heat that matches the signature Preemo sound with some never heard before rhymes from the late, great Guru, the unexpected seventh studio album from the classic rap duo hits hard and reminds us just how special Gang Starr was and forever will be.

GANG STARR – BAD NAME

After shocking the world with “Friends and Loyalty” alongside J. Cole, DJ Premier and the late Guru are back with another new song from their forthcoming album. “Bad Name” is the Gang Starr sound you know and love with Guru finessing over a trademark Preemo production. It’s just crazy that Guru has been gone this long and sounds so perfect over new beats.

GANG STARR FEAT. J. COLE – FAMILY AND LOYALTY

Although Guru is gone, he will never be forgotten. The legacy of Gang Starr will live forever and DJ Premier has preserved that memory and extended its reach into 2019 with a brand new song titled “Family and Loyalty” that finds previously unreleased Guru vocals over DJ Premier production with a touch of today as J. Cole blesses the song with his presence.

“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)” Premier says. “We all want the things we want right now, but I am a patient guy. I hung in there and I just kept believing.”

It’s quintessential Gang Starr brought to the masses and J. Cole appearing on the song gives it a very current feel that vibes with the classic Gang Starr sound.

“When it comes to this generation of emcees, ones that are lyrically on the level that Guru was on and someone that he would want to work with; Cole is that guy” Preemo confidently asserted. “When Cole heard the record he got the chills and knew it was a classic.”
