Rap Flashback – Step in the Arena

Today’s Rap Flashback remembers Gang Starr’s 2nd studio album, ‘Step In the Arena’, released 22 years ago today. Selected in 1998 as one of The Source’s 100 Best Hip Hop Albums (#42) the album featured jams ‘Check The Technique’ and ‘Who’s Gonna Take the Weight’ (which Premier would later remix for Grand Theft Auto IV).

Powered by DJ Premier’s brilliant production and Boston’s own Guru’s laid back yet impactful delivery, ‘Step In The Arena’ help further established Gang Starr as a mainstay amongst underground Hip Hop circles. RIP Guru, salute.
