Gang Starr Featuring Jadakiss- Right Where You Stand
Gang Starr does it again the with release of the new single Rite Where You Stand featuring Jadakiss. This reminds me of a time in the 90’s when Biggie and Tupac’s music was re-purposed and released after their deaths. Except that shit was wack.
The music wasn’t good, the mixes were terrible and the projects sounded like amateur mix tapes. The motive to commercialize off the tragic deaths of two of the greatest was painfully obvious. It wasn’t a good time.
But DJ Premier followed the G code. He allowed us years to come to terms with the loss of Guru before resurrecting him on wax. His decision to create new Gang Starr music feels authentic. It comes from a place of love. Premier knew fans would appreciate new music, and he delivered in a way that only he can.
Rest well GURU
