ABOUT THE MIX
DJ Premier & Guru (R.I.P.), the duo more popularly known as Gang Starr, released their 4th album 'Hard To Earn' on March 8, 1994. Tired of being labeled as 'jazz-rap', Preemo decided to move away from sampling jazz records, and instead opted for a stripped down style of production. The result was a raw, harder hitting sound, and arguably their best album ever. 'Hard To Earn' is near & dear to me, so I had to get back in the lab and record this 25-year tribute to this legendary album. I've gathered their hits, album cuts & b-sides, and combined them with some original samples, interview soundbites, and my own custom blends. ARTWORK by Toon Crew (follow him on IG @tooncrew)

Filthy good! Thank you for this perfectly timed tribute to one of the seminal hip-hop duos of all time! Your painstaking approach has lead to an incredibly enjoyable walk down memory lane for me... I definitely plan to hit you up soon for the FULL mix. And definitely RIP Guru... may your journey never end.
