Rarely do hiphop acts stand the test of time. But Gang Starr's fusion of the underground killer beats of DJ Premier with Guru's smooth vocal stylings has always stayed true to its game. FULL CLIP compiles Gang Starr's ten-year run of hits. One of the things you notice about the double-disk set, packed as it is with such favorites as "DWYCK," "Just to Get A Rep," and "Mass Appeal," is that all 32 songs are home-runs. Every track here has earned its "greatest hits" status. Check out the rare, cool remixes of "Manifest," "You Know My Steez" (featuring The Lady of Rage and Kurupt), and "The Militia II" (with cameos from WC and Rakim). There's even a blazing new cut in the title track. FULL CLIP packs more ammunition than one would need in a prolonged war.
Artist Overview
Striking the perfect balance between street cred and sophisticated musicality, Guru and DJ Premier of Gang Starr emerged as hip-hop pioneers in the late 1980s with their sophisticated, jazz-influenced (but still funk-based) sound. They are the rare rap troupe who command respect from every corner of the rap spectrum, as evidenced by their track record of collaborations, including everyone from jazzman Branford Marsalis to Brooklyn gangster rap-dudes M.O.P. DAILY OPERATION and HARD TO EARN remain among the classic albums of the genre. Guru would go on to release a groundbreaking series of jazz-rap collaborations entitled JAZZMATAZZ.

Spin (10/99, p.158) - 9 out of 10 - "...the common thread running through FULL CLIP's 32 cuts: Swing. Head-nod. Repeat....they proved the centrality of the beat better than nearly anyone in hip-hop..."
Q (10/99, p.148) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Prime soul rhythms are made eerie and poignant, the beats are full of restrained power and their influence on, say, Portishead is clear. What comes over most is their cultivated handle on hip hop's divided soul..."
