Gang Starr, the legendary rap duo consisting of the late Guru and DJ Premier, have returned with their first new single in 16 years, and first music since Guru’s death in 2010. The song, “Family and Loyalty,” features posthumous vocals from Guru and a verse from J. Cole. “When it comes to this generation of emcees, ones that are lyrically on the level that Guru was on and someone that he would want to work with; Cole is that guy” DJ Premier said in a press release. “When Cole heard the record he got the chills and knew it was a classic.” Listen to “Family and Loyalty” featuring J. Cole below.
