Gang Starr- Hard to Earn

Leading the charge for New York, Gang Starr was cherished because of Guru’s monotone street lessons and punchlines over DJ Premier’s trademark scratches and rugged production. Crafting a manifesto against selling out, “Mass Appeal” fully embraced the spirit of 1994, a message not compromised by “DWYCK,” which is still one of the group’s most recognized hits. No slouch himself with production, Guru was responsible for the album’s other memorable single “Code Of The Streets.” Hard to Earn remains one of the most impressive efforts in Gang Starr’s thorough catalog.
