How many people here are fans of Gang Starr?

Gang Starr is my all time favorite group, I loved their music since age 10, I own every album, and would like to know if anybody can relate to me... peace.

yeah, i was a major gangstarr/eastcoast fan before i even knew what the westcoast was. alot of eastcoast music gets played here in aust. so eastcoast becomes the more general sound !

Tight tight group. I don't own ALL of their material yet but I own a majority of it. Guru is definatly one of the best MC's EVER, & Primo is one of my all time fav. producers, he's made the majority of my fav. beats, alongside Dre.

Can someone post up the names of all their songs that have music video's to them, I have a few but I wanna try & collect them all.

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'.

I am in desperate need of some Gang Starr videos... I would be very grateful in you could hook me of with some, anway here are a list of the Gang Starr music videos I have seen (and ones that I haven't watched, but I know exist):

"Just To Get A Rep"          
"Lovesick"
"Step In The Arena"
"Who's Gonna Take The Weight?"
"You Know My Steez"
"Mass Appeal"
"The Militia" f/ Big Shug & Freddie Foxxx
"Royalty" f/ K-Ci & JoJo

"Discipline" f/ Total

I'm 100% positive more videos exist... 704D have you got any more info ?

"Mass Appeal"
"Code Of The Streets"
"Ex Girl To Next Girl"
"Step In The Arena"
"Full Clip"

True, Guru is a very underrated, dope MC... and Premier is the #1 hip-hop producer, straight up... hopefully all true hiphop heads will buy their next album, and make it go platinum.. Gang Starr have deserved it.

Gang Starr.. Yeah, They're dope. Probably one of my favorite East Coast groups. I only own one cd though.. that's "The Moment Of Truth". Alot of the songs you recommended are from that cd.. they're tight songs. I didn't discover them till later but I've heard their old school shit and it's cool too, like if I would've known about them back then, I'm pretty sure I would have been bumpin them. Guru just comes off like a down to earth, sincere person when he's on tha mic.

For the ones who havn't heard too much from them I suggest you check out "Full Clip: A Decade Of Gang Starr" to start you off, it's basically a greatest hits comp & it has all their classic material on there & more. From experience I always find with artists I havn't heard too much from if they have a greatest hits album thats always a great place to start.

Gang Starr are mad dope, their only fault is that at times, Guru's voice can get mad repetitive imo, he's nice on the mic lyrically, but he can be too monotone, still their dope. Premo is up there with Dre in production terms without a doubt, that goes without sayin.

'Moment Of Truth' and 'Daily Operation' are my favourite Gang Starr albums.

"Moment Of Truth" are definitely their best album, in my eyes... the finest production, and some of the best Guru rhymes ever are included on that record... when listening to his independent Landspeed release "Baldhead Slick & The Click" he sounds wack in comparisation to his perfomances on "Moment Of Truth"... I hope he makes a worthy comeback on the new Gang Starr album though... one
