After giving us the J Cole assisted single “Family and Loyalty” alongside its video, Gang Starr returns with a brand new track “Bad Name” to keep the momentum going. The record has the classic Gang starr vibe from start to end with DJ premier crafting a chilled, solemn backdrop while Guru addresses the state of hip-hop and other social issues that are quite relevant today.
The new single serves as the sophomore release pending the release of the new album One Of The Best Yet; a 16 track body of work that features names like MOP, Nitty Scott, Neyo, J.Cole and long-time Gangstarr Foundation affiliates such as Big Shug, Jeru the Damaja, Group Home and Freddie Foxx.
