Video: Gang Starr – Bad Name

In Hip Hop by James Wijesinghe

Gang Starr are back with a crisp new track ‘Bad Name’, from DJ Premier and Guru posthumously. This is the second single from the pair’s return album One Of The Best Yet, following on from ‘Family and Loyalty (Ft. J Cole)’. Guru’s lyrics, although recorded over a decade ago, ring true today. He drops knowledge in every bar, talking about “real hip hop” and issues within the music scene. In the humourous music video, watch Guru’s son Keith Casim acting the role of his father. It also stars US celebrity Spice Adams.
