FROM HARD TO URN

Preemo, left, Guru, right

I called Preemo to see what went into the latest Gang Starr (the first in 16 years!) One Of The Best Yet, an intimate next step in their ongoing legacy, featuring posthumous verses from Guru culled through bitter lawsuits with Solar, whose strange involvement with Guru towards the end of his life, and whose vocal Preemo slander leaves a bitter underscore beneath the whole thing. Nevertheless, the new one is a great album– a familiar conversation between old friends– and Preemo was open and gracious as always in this recent interview. Written for THE FADER, read it HERE.

  1. Excellent interview as always!!
    Might be a typo, but the Solar you are referring to is spelled with one “a”. Not to be confused with MC Solaar, a French MC who was on the first Jazzmatazz (Le Bien/Le Mal).
