Video Marvin to most, Gene to a few
messymarvelous "Itz A Set Up" - Gang Starr feat. Hannibal Stax. Seventeen years ago, the greatest Gang Starr album came out IMHO. This is one of my favorite joints off the album that has so many jewels. I've played several of them on my page already so I gotta keep it fresh with this cut. #RIPGURU

Video I Am HipHop__Knowledge Of Self
hiphops_emcee Song Put It On
Artist : Big L
Album : Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous (1995)
.

[Verse 3: Big L]
I drink Moet not Beck's beer, I stay dressed in slick gear
Peace to my homies in the gangster lean I see you when I get there
And it's a fact I keep a gat in my arm reach
I charm freaks and bomb geeks from here to Palm Beach
I'm putting rappers in the wheelchair
Big L is the villain you still fear
Cause I be hanging in Harlem and shit is for real here
If you battle L you picked the wrong head
I smash mics like cornbread, you can't kill me I was born dead
And I'm known to pull steel trigs and kill pigs
I run with ill kids and real nigs who peel wigs
My rap's steady slamming, I keep a heavy cannon
It's a new sheriff in town, and it ain't Reggie Hammond
Peace to my peoples, the Children of the Corn
Cause we put it on, adiós, ghost I'm gone
.

iknow_myhiphop Released four years after its previous album,Hard to Earn, this album could be perceived as a comeback, with a newer, updated style of the group's already-established jazz-tinged hip-hop, as stated by Guru in the introduction:

The album is the group's most commercially successful album to date. Moment of Truthdebuted at #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. It went on to sell over 500,000 copies and was certified Gold by the RIAA on May 7, 1998. The lead single, "You Know My Steez," became the duo's second Billboard Hot 100 appearnce in 1997, peaking at #76. Spin ranked it as the #16 album of 1998.

The album features more guest artists than previous Gang Starr releases. Collaborations include songs with Inspectah Deck, Scarface,G-Dep, Freddie Foxxx, K-Ci & JoJo, M.O.P. and more.
