    Read an article today. When asked if there will be another Gang Starr album, Preme said, “you never know”. I’ll take that as a yes since he as more vocals left and supposedly already had at least 5-8 before he brought 30 from Solar.

    The beat sounds like it could have been made yesterday. And yeah, this is one of Guru's best performances. He could fit a lot of words in his bars, but he never sacrificed the flow.:wow:

    I'm rushing you like a defensive end, as I recommend
    That you comprehend, I could stomp you in
    A battle, contest, or war, what will occur
    Will be the forfeiture of your immature
    Insecure for sure, meek, weak visions of grandeur
    To rudely awaken you, I then'll be breakin' you
    Taxin' without askin', attractin' a snake in you
    Makin' you succumb to the drums of Gang Starr


    "Bon voyage", "Sayonara", "Arrivederci"
    Your ass gets busted, doodoo mustard, you tried to work me
    You irked me, because you copy and falsify
    And I don't care how many step up, 'cause you all could try
    To wish and fish for a style, here's a fishing rod
    These rhymes are hittin' hard, constantly I'm gettin' large
    Inevitably, I readily kick a slew
    Of lyrics so deep, so don't sleep, but just peep me
    Puttin' methods on records and spinning for each millisecond
    33 RPMs displays the art of men
    And as my rhymin' builds you see my time it's chill...
    And then I look upon weak ones
    I'm teachin' each one so they become redone
    Essays are relayed to twist you up like French braids
    Or tied up like corn braids, 'cause I got a strong rage
    Force like police raids to never be delayed
    I once was the least paid but I made the grade
    'Cause this ain't a slave sale and I ain't the same stale
    Rapper, no, I'm not a phony microphonist with no class or
    No type of real appeal or real talent



    :damn: :myman: :wow:

    "Battle" is a really underrated song. Guru sounds like that wise old man sitting on the porch drinking and looking at all the new guys pretending they're about the street life like :mjtf: .

    Also, "This ain't TV, but I'll show you what a fear factor is" is a really simple line, but the way it's delivered gets me every time. :wow:

    I feel that Gang Starr should’ve put out at least two more albums than they did during their career. I know they were working on other stuff but I just feel like they had more in the tank. My other regret of their career, albeit minor, is that as exceptional and totally dope as a Full Clip was, Battle” was not retroactively added to the album. I know thats a lot to add but it, to me, would’ve finalized what they were trying to do by bringing all of their soundtrack joints to one project.
