stream Gang Starr’s first new song in 16 years ft. J Cole

Gang Starr

Guru of Gang Starr passed away in 2010, but his former partner in crime DJ Premier has unearthed a posthumous verse from him for the first new Gang Starr song in 16 years, “Family and Loyalty.” It sounds like classic Gang Starr, and it features a verse from J. Cole who clearly sounds stoked at the opportunity to be on this song and very much brings his A game to the track.

DJ Premier said, “This record means so much to me. It’s a continuation of what I never wanted to end. It’s a very foreign place for me and very emotional. I get happy, sad, excited; my feelings are kind of all over the place. But predominantly, just very happy to be making music with Guru again.”

Listen below.

Meanwhile, J Cole — who, in case you haven’t heard, went platinum with no features — says he won’t be doing any more features for other artists after this song. “This is the last feature you’ll ever hear from me,” he says of the Gang Starr song.
