In response to Reply # 4


  

          

I didn't like it when it was released. Probably only because it wasn't as good as Moment of Truth to me.

But random songs from that album have popped up on my Spotify playlists and I have to say it's really dope. The first half of that album is as good as anything they've done.

I was recently on a Gangstarr binge, and had it lined up directly after Moment of Truth. I was surprised by a few things: 1) how much I loved it. I know just about every word on the album. 2) how well it stacks up with MoT. The beats, rhymes, themes. All on point.

I just wish we would have gotten another album between the two. Tha Squeeze is still a classic.

It's clearly really good. I have this impression of it that it's like the ugly duckling of their discography.

Outside of a few songs that pop up in Spotify, I haven't listened to the full album since it was new. It needs a relisten.

and fall into this category as well. Like someone above me just said, for a long time I looked at it as the "ugly duckling" of their catalogue for a long time. But when I heard it recently I had a newfound appreciation for it. So many great, great songs on there. Many of which I always loved. But then the rest is well done too.

I just think Moment of Truth was really, really damn hard to follow. Anything would've seemed like a disappointment.

Me too. I hate what happened to Guru. It's such a ... I dunno, it's just not a lot of people deserve to go out like that but Guru ESPECIALLY didn't deserve that type of mysterious, controversial, conflicted ending.

He was ahead of his time in terms of his wisdom and self/social awareness. Moment of Truth was for sure his magnum opus from a pure rhyming standpoint as well as a content standpoint, IMO.

And beyond just his skills on the mic and his ability to make you look inward, and think, and contemplate your place in the world ... he just seemed like a real, genuine, solid, GOOD dude.

So sad how he went out. But thank god we have so much timeless, incredible music to remember him by. And thank god he worked with someone as truly amazing as Preemo, who laced him with the best possible beats to fit his style as well as so many of the best beats in hip-hop history.

RIP. Forever.

I got into Gangstarr when Full Clip came out so I don't really have any concept of what songs are on what album. By the time I discovered them I could just listen to their whole catalog together.

I think Guru was the first death of someone that really fucked me up. I still remember exactly where I was.

I've been listening to GS since "No More Mr. Nice Guy" dropped. I remember recording (yes, VHS, lol) the "Positivity" video off Rap City and just watching it over and over and over. I was like, "how could something be this dope?????". I was picking my son up from school. I had just pulled up and was about to get out and go in. My homie Chris texted me and it just said "He's gone...Guru is gone". I was so shocked/hurt/confused. I was like what, wait, how, wtf!!!! I sat there for about 5 minutes angry as shit. It really bothered me.

I used to see the album at the record store and the way they were posing was so just not ... Gangster, which is what I thought they were going for. about a month later I caught the video for Manifest and Guru was looking just like Malcolm X and the beat was SLAMMIN'
went and picked up the album and never looked back

I was fresh to death HS freshman year:

Airbrushed overalls with one strap hanging
Starter hat (you'd get clowned if it wasn't legit Starter)
Random team t-shirt
Ellesses, BK's, Avias, Jordans, or Ewings (anything else: clowned)

Hallway fashion shows in full effect

26. "Favorite Primo beat on a Gangstarr album?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I know it's like picking your favorite child (if all of your children were perfect,) but I've got to go with Mass Appeal. That hits me in an emotional place (and it's not even nostalgia, didn't hear that song for the first time until I was maybe in college.) But it's just such a gorgeous beat that I can't help it. It's soulful and head-nodding and rough and delicate at the same time.

34. "It's near impossible but ..."
In response to Reply # 26

Mass Appeal is on the shortlist, for sure. It's interesting because I've listened to that song so many times that I rarely intentionally put it on anymore ... but, I've noticed that a lot of DJs at concerts, between acts, will play the beat for Mass Appeal as part of the mix they do while setting up the stage for the next artist. And that beat hits harder than any other, every single time.

Anyway I'd likely be choosing between:
- Mass Appeal
- You Know My Steez
- Above the Clouds
- Next Time

The above really speaks to just how incredible Moment of Truth is.

>edit: favorite non gangstarr primo beat... the format

Thank you ! Just threw it on ... this shit was on repeat for close to a year when it was released. So good.

I wouldn't say it's my favorite non-GS Preem beat but it's damn good. But now I kinda want to decide what mine is haha.

Honestly it's prolly "Shake This" by Royce. That song is just beautiful. But it's near impossible to choose cause now I'm second guessing remembering that he did "Nas is Like," "Memory Lane/In the Park," "2nd Childhood," "Mathematics," "Courtesy," "You Should Know," "6th Sense," "The Documentary II" etc. etc. etc.

I think "Shake This" still takes it but "Nas is Like" is a massive contender. Shit I forgot "Represent" !!! The sample source for that one is crazy.

Nah it's "Shake This" for sure. But what a career.

48. "Above The Clouds"
In response to Reply # 26


  

          

That shit hits all the marks for me, not just as a beat but as a song.

Dope intro build up
Dope interlude clip incorporated
Dope scratching (although not on the hook his time)
Dope verses
Dope hook
Dope guest spot

Everything about that shit is perfection

He's play it and rewind it for days. After 2 weeks I asked for it back, as he obviously loved the track. Asked him about DWYCK, which was on the B-side. He never had flipped that tape over...

After 2 more weeks, I finally got it back

Between personal drama, family loss, bonding with brothers from another mother, maintaining sanity at work, and just staying true to culture, no other group has meant more to me on many different levels.

One of the best yet...
