He posted an Instagram clip featuring a voicemail from Nas, who asks, "Is it true there's a new Gang Starr album?" Guru was the founder of the group with DJ Premier. Later on, after the split up DJ Premier joined Guru.

"This record means so much to me", DJ Premier said in a statement".

It isn't but identified if additional new Gang Starr music will observe the discharge of "Family And Loyalty".

On "Family and Loyalty", the artists explore legacy and lasting resonance, which are in turn prescient and poignant themes particularly in light of Guru's death. "I still felt it inside of me, it just happened to be nine years later (after Guru's passing)" Premier commented.

Talking of followers' wait for brand new Gang Starr music, Premier stated: "We all want the things we want right now, but I am a patient guy".

"Family and Loyalty" arrived ahead of Gang Starr's forthcoming new album, which Premier teased earlier this week on Twitter. "This is the last feature you'll hear from me. Cole, who'd a thought you woulda been rhyming with ghosts?/Guru flows forever like a diamond that most/Could never afford the precious jewels", he raps. Listen to "Family and Loyalty" below. His 1991 classic "Guru's Jazzmatazz" was a Jazz inspired record which turned into multiple Jazz-rap records. Thank you to everybody I got to work with during this run.

This will be Gang Starr's first album since 2003 and today marks the first official posthumous Guru verse since we lost the legend almost a decade ago.
