GangStarr-Step In The Arena

by Eric on March 21, 2007

“Just to Get A Rep” happened to be my first exposure to the production & turntable wizardry of the legend we all know & love as “Primo“. At least production-wise this LP was so far ahead of it’s time. Go back & listen to GangStarr’s first LP “Step In The Arena” and the maturation of Primo’s production is the first thing that you notice. “Lyric-wise” Guru hit the nail on the head when he declared “it’s mostly tha voice” b/c indeed it is. Guru will never be in your list of top 25 MCs but much like CL Smooth no one sounds better over their partner’s production. Overall, my favorite GangStarr LP behind Hard To Earn.
