Yesterday, DJ Premier threw the internet into a frenzy after he took to Twitter to ask what people would say if he “released a new…” before going radio silent and leaving the peanut gallery to guess away.
Thankfully, Premo didn’t wait too long to complete the sentence. This morning, the famed producer spilled the beans (well, sorta) and shared a voicemail from Nas that had the Queens emcee asking a very important inquiry: “Is it true there’s a new Gang Starr album?”
To answer the legendary emcee’s question: yes, yes there is!
Sixteen years after their last album (2003’s The Ownerz) and nine years since the tragic passing of Guru, it appears that there will be a new Gang Starr album released to the world. More information will be provided soon. Like, real soon. Until then, go back and give your favorite Gang Starr album a spin.
