      Big $syk, what it do?

      I’m bangin’ Guru’s “Best Of Gang Starr” mixtape to commemorate his passing last year. I don’t get it. Why does it always take someone to die for you to appreciate their greatness and their contributions? A lot of people STILL don’t realize how ridiculous dude’s catalog was/is.

        ’cause man thinks he’s invincible, and going back is a weakness when he should be moving forward…but dudes knew this rap fall-off was coming oska…that’s why cats dropped time capsules to refer back too…see it now?

        • oskamadison

          Yeah, I see it. i try not to be one of those 30-somethings hatin’ on the new shit just because but there’s nothing out there that sticks to the ribs.
