Not as sublime as the first album, but still with some pretty great moments – thanks to the genius of Towa Tei! Includes the titles "Pussycat Meow", one of our personal favorites – plus "Runaway", "Fuddy Duddy Judge", "The Dreams Are Fine", "Electric Shock", "Two CloudsAbove Nine", and "Heart Be Still". CD

Gang Starr —
Moment Of Truth ... LP Noo Trybe/Universal, 1998. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A later effort from Gang Starr that's just as dope as their earlier classics! By the late 90s, a lot of their of Gang Starr's peers of similar vintage were starting to fall off creatively and commercially – hence the title – but Guru and Premier would have none of that. Guru's rhymes are as dexterous and on point ever, and Premier's tried-and-true gritty beats and jazzy samples style is also at near peak strength. A bit underrated in the Gang Starr canon, but it's truly top notch work. Includes "You Know My Steez", "Rep Grows Bigga", "Work", "Make Em Pay" with Krumb Snatcha, "Above The Clouds" with Inspectah Deck, "Betrayal" with a sharp turn by Scarface, "The Militia" with Big Shug & Freddie Foxxx, "BI Vs Friendship" with MOP and more. 20 tracks in all!
