Hey everybody I just started getting into Gang Starr and was wondering if someone who's been listening to them for a while could recommend 15-20 songs that really represent them. Like a best of playlist until I have time to really dwelve into their discography. Props in advance!!

get the remix of full clip ... same beat and same guru verses but sticky fingaz spits at the end too

you should probably buy/download their Full Clip double cd ... pretty much is what you're looking for

Thanks for the advice guys. I'll check out Full Clip. By the way does anyone have the dj premier produced verbal threat - reality check?

You dont need a list of songs. You cant go wrong starting with any album from their discography.

There is an album Mass Appeal: The Best of Gangstarr....copy that playlist.

Thanks for the recommendations everyone. Picked up Full Clip today and can't stop bangin' it!!! I've played it home, ripped it in my ipod for work and blasted it in my whip...sounds awesome!!! I'm hooked on GangStarr. Only took it out to listen to Gza - Alphabet (which is also bangin'...looking forward to Pro Tools)!!

Thought I'd ask one last time too...Can anyone up Verbal Threat - Reality Check?
