Throwback Track: DWYCK - Gang Starr ft. Nice and Smooth



Speed: 100 bpm

The DJ’s Take: I usually post pop music up here, but decided that today, I will pay respects to one of the great rap groups of all-time. In case you didn’t hear, Guru of Gang Starr died yesterday at age 43.

If you’re a true fan of rap and hiphop, the news is tough to take, although there were rumors floating around that Guru was having health issues. I was a big fan of their music, and used to love mixing in classics like DWYCK when I started djing. They made rap tracks like they were meant to be made - DJ Premier making your head nod and your ribcage shake with his beats, and Guru delivering calm, cool rhymes in his trademark monotone like a hiphop godfather.

R.I.P. to a true legend.
