GANGSTARR- who here FEELS them?
« on: August 12, 2002, 06:32:13 AM »
I was just wondering what everyone thinks of them because people don't really talk abou them a lot......  

Everyone talks about Premo's songs for other people, but to me his outside collaborations with other artists do not represent his potential and overall talent as they are always the same (chopped up lyrics scratched into the chorus).  To me, Premo's latest work has been like Dre's- still dope but VERY repetitive.  THat is why i love Gangstarr albums, Premo comes creative and experiments with different sounds.  Add Guru to the mix, and you always get an INCREDIBLE album.  To me, Guru is a great MC.....he is monotone so he isn't for everyone, but if you like insightful and mature lyrics that provoke deep though and retrospect, then Guru is for you.

I don't think Gangstarr has ever had an album under 4/5, and i am sure there next album will be incredible......

Premo is the hip-hop purest in terms of production, and Guru has that nice laid back flow that I love. To me Gangstarr is the greatest 1-2 punch ever.

Gangstarr are dope, one of my favourite groups, Guru compliments Primo's beats perfectly. All their albums get regular rotation from me.

Actually, we've had quite a few Gangstarr threads up in here since this (Outbound) forum started. If you go back a few pages you'll find them.

& to answer the Q, I think most peeps in here, including myself feel Gangstarr. Premo is on of my fav. producers and imo as an MC Guru is one of the greats, a very prolific lyracist. And like someone else said, his vocals compliment Premo's beats perfectly.

I think that if you take one of the 'O's' out of 'Good' it's 'God', if you add a 'D' to 'Evil' it's the 'Devil'. I think some cool motherfucker sat down a long time ago and said 'let's figure out a way to control motherfuckers'.

nah, for some reason I never liked their music. It just seems too plain in my opinion.

Two of the illest. To understand Primo and Guru is to understand a piece of Hiphop and it's history.

no doubt tee... you hit the nail on the head... we talked about this in the past mad times... i always enjoy gangstarr albums cause guru flows so nice over primos creations... which are more varied and experimental on his own shit...  Moment Of Truth and Hard To Earn are both amoung my favorites... cant wait for the new one.
