Comment: The only true ones that still remain as a MC/DJ combo, yeah true heads you gotta admit! A super dope track that soon will be classic! As well as the video. Guru and Preem keep doing sh*t straight from the heart!

Summary: Feeling Gang Starr
Comment: I am happy to know that they are back. I've been waiting for this to come out since the Moment of Truth dropped five years ago. Guru's LP kept me satisfied but it isn't Gang Starr. Cop this on its release date y'all!

Summary: This I'm Feelin
Comment: At first I wasn't really convinced about this track until I was in my boy's car and banged it. I got to hear it a lil better, now I'm excited that Gang Starr's back. I got side tracked off that Baldhead Slick sh*t.

Comment: Gang Starr has never followed the trends of hip-hop music, but rather have created their own unique style that literally transformed the game. "Skills" is a little number to wet the appetites of all you heads awaiting the spring release of ‘The Ownerz' album. The beat will hit you like a throwback, but Premo's claps are just sinister enough to show that it's clear the best of the old and new school are combined to produce a certified hit. Of course the track would hold no weight if Guru didn't come through and bless it with some lyrical ‘skills' to give this joint validity. To put it bluntly- East Coast hip-hop at it's best.

Summary: In A Word Beautiful....
Comment: How is Premo this good? Definitely another Premier banger. The way the bass moves around it just makes you move your head. No one comes close to chopping up beats like this, it just makes you glad to be a hip-hop fan. And Gifted Unlimited drops some nice lyrics, above his usual okeedoke status anyways. A definite 5.0.

Summary: What Is The Game Lacking? Skills!
Comment: "Skills," the first single from super duo Gang Starr's 6th LP "The Ownerz," is sure to be in heavy rotation in many a speaker. Smooth, danceable groove and solid rhymes, Gang Starr is back to inject some anti-venom into the veins of the poisioned listeners.

Summary: Good Song
Comment: I longed for this. It's something about Gang Starr man. Love the laidback beat and Guru is on point as usual. The lyrics are not his best, but you just can't front on the delivery and plus the voice alone is a reason to listen to him rap if you ask me. Cop this one. I just wanna get this one in my car and ride. Plus it's about springtime. Yep I'm hyped.
