In honor of the late Gang Starr emcee, who passed this week after a lengthy cancer battle, we have collected clips of some of his greatest rhymes.


“I come with mad love and plus the illest warlike tactics
The wilderness is filled with this; so many people
searching for false lift, I’m here with the skills you’ve missed
The rejected stone is now the cornerstone
Sort of like the master builder when I make my way home
You know my steez…”
—Gang Starr “You Know My Steez”
