Editorial Reviews

Rap duo Gang Starr has gathered its greatest hits for Mass Appeal: The Best of Gang Starr, CD release. Before their recent split, Guru and DJ Premier recorded seven full-length albums and gained critical acclaim from hip-hop fans. The longevity comes from being in touch, connected with the streets, being a fan, Guru told music journalist Soren Baker, who has penned the compilation's linear notes. Premier and I are fans of the music. We listen to everything. We maintain that hunger, that same energy that we had when we first started in the game.The firs single-disc hits collection from one of the most influental groups in hip-hop and fully maxedwith 20 tracks, including seven Top 10 Billboard singles.

Gang-Starr is as Hip-Hop as Hip-Hop can get. Since the 80's, they've put out hit after hit after hit. This is an excellent CD/DVD collection, superior sound quality and a decent video selection, although it could've been better. Missing from this CD/DVD compilation are the classic videos and songs that made everybody love Brooklyn's favorite transplants and claim them as our own. The videos also have an excessive and at times ridiculous blurring of logos. despite the obvious omissions of their more clssic material, it still is a very good collection to own.

For the money you can't really do better if you're a Gang Starr fan. There's another greatest hits album tha thas more content, but this one was a better deal for what I got.

If you don't know Gang Starr: They made real hip hop. Simple catchy beats with potent lyrics. If you like early Nas, Mos Def, Black Star, MF Doom, etc, then you'll like Gang Starr

Only Negative is I wish "Work" was on this album, since it's a personal fav... but that's just me.

I put on my old Step In The Arena CD. The intro comes through, sounding pretty good, and at reasonable volume. 30 seconds later, the CD moves on to track 2, the awesome title track, but the volume is noticeably lower. I have to get up and turn up the volume on my stereo. The sound quality isn't worse, it's just considerably softer. The same problem occurs multiple times throughout the playing of my Step In The Arena CD. I can't be the only one with these problems, and by no means is Step In The Arena the only late 80's / early 90's hip-hop CD which I have this problem with. Long story short, it's inconvenient enough for me to purchase this excellent best-of, just to have a listening experience of a bunch of fabulous Gang Starr tunes, all sounding good and all at the same volume. I like that this one isn't chronological, either. It shows just how consistent Preemo and Guru were over the years that tracks from all their albums can rub shoulders and not sound out of place. They should've included the remix of Manifest, not the original, but other than that, this collection is almost perfect.

It's hard to go wrong with a "greatest hits" compilation from one of the most notable and influential hip hop duos of the last 25 years. A great place to start if you are unfamiliar with their music.
