Gang Starr’s Mass Appeal is discussed during Complex’s Magnum Opus series. DJ Premier, Stretch Armstrong, Noah Callahan Beaver and Jadakiss talk about Gang Starr’s critically acclaimed career that never reached huge commercial recognition and how they stayed true to their aesthetic. It’s noted how DJ Premier and Guru became defining creators of New York hip-hop even though they both were from other places. DJ Premier also mentions the lack of a magazine cover for Guru when he passed in 2010.
