More Info

Though they never “officially” disbanded after the release of their last project
("The Ownerz" in 2003), DJ Premier and Guru still remained infinitely connected to each other even as they embarked on solo paths. In the interim, fans always clamored for another Gang Starr album. Though there were whispers and murmurs over the years, nothing ever panned out and the possibilities of that project being willed into existence seemingly grew more remote as the years passed by. After Guru tragically passed away in 2010 the hope seemed to vanish altogether. The one person who refused to give hope was DJ Premier. DJ Premier announced the return of Gang Starr with the group’s first song since 2003, “Family and Loyalty,” featuring J. Cole. DJ Premier began crafting "One of the Best Yet" in 2017, and he said in a statement he always believed the project would come to fruition, even after Guru’s death in 2010.
