Muze PNote Working as Gang Starr for over 15 years, Guru & DJ Premier have more than earned their reputation as one of the most skilled, intelligent hip-hop outfits ever to grab the microphone and work the turntables.
Muze PNote With Gang Starr's prior release, the underrated HARD TO EARN, seemingly in the distant past (five years), THE OWNERZ reflects the deliberate nature of the meticulous duo. While Premier earned legendary status as producer on some of rap's most enduring records, he seems to do something extra for his home team, and THE OWNERZ may be his tightest work yet. From the Curtis Mayfield-esque opening of "Sabotage" to the deliriously offbeat feedback and horns of "Who Got Gunz," there's not one false note. Add Guru's patented, steady-but-unassuming swagger, and THE OWNERZ is precisely what the hip-hop world expects from Gang Starr, another classic.

Producer: DJ Premier; Guru

Engineer: Eddie Sancho; Dexter Thibou; Anthony Ruotolo

Professional Reviews

Spin (9/03, p.115)
- "...The melodies behind DJ Premier's secret-handshake beats are sweeter, but Guru is as bluntly eloquent as ever, delivering every rhyme as if it were a hard-nosed Brooklyn koan." - Rating: B

Uncut (9/03, p.97)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...Best of all are Premier's inventive backing tracks, hotwired with weird strings, unexpected piano and horn riffs....A class act still in their prime..."

Vibe (6/03, pp.153-4)
- 3 1/2 out of 5 - "...Gang Starr's formula is both straightforward and timeless....It brings back the power of the basics in an ever-evolving rap landscape..."
