Full Clip: A Decade of Gang Starr [Clean Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Although they didn't have to wait as long as Susan Lucci to receive their proper accolades, Gang Starr were finally awarded gold status last year with their remarkable fifth album, MOMENT OF TRUTH. True hip-hop aficionados, however, have always applauded the steadfast talents of Guru and DJ Premier. Those unfamiliar with these New York rap crusaders' repertoire need look no further than this double-CD retrospective. Kicked off by a live tribute to fallen Harlem rapper Big L, FULL CLIP bobs and weaves through the many highlights of Gang Starr's career, including the classic "Words I Manifest Remix," the 1989 revamped version of the duo's first single, and fan favorites "Just to Get a Rep," "Mass Appeal" and the Nice...

Although they didn't have to wait as long as Susan Lucci to receive their proper accolades, Gang Starr were finally awarded gold status last year with their remarkable fifth album, MOMENT OF TRUTH. True hip-hop aficionados, however, have always applauded the steadfast talents of Guru and DJ Premier. Those unfamiliar with these New York rap crusaders' repertoire need look no further than this double-CD retrospective. Kicked off by a live tribute to fallen Harlem rapper Big L, FULL CLIP bobs and weaves through the many highlights of Gang Starr's career, including the classic "Words I Manifest Remix," the 1989 revamped version of the duo's first single, and fan favorites "Just to Get a Rep," "Mass Appeal" and the Nice & Smooth collaboration and party starter "DWYCK." There's also three new joints "Full Clip," "Discipline," featuring Total, and "All 4 Tha Ca$h" in addition to some hard-to-find B-sides like "The ? Remainz" and enticing remixes like "The Militia II" featuring W.C. and Rakim. Overloaded with bonafide musical blasts, FULL CLIP is the sure shot. Gabriel Alvarez
All Music Guide - John Bush
Considering that the only previous hip-hop hits collection to stretch two full CDs came from 2Pac and only after his death, Gang Starr's Full Clip is a surprising release, though it's incredibly welcome. The duo of DJ Premier and Guru has been one of the longest continuous acts on the rap scene, beginning with 1989's No More Mr. Nice Guy and a spot on the soundtrack to Spike Lee's 1990 film Mo' Better Blues. And as demonstrated by Premier's stunning productions on classic early tracks like "Who's Gonna Take the Weight," "Words I Manifest," and "Just to Get a Rep," Gang Starr hit its stride early, and just kept on hitting peak after peak during the '90s with "Speak Ya Clout," "Code of the Streets," "Tonz 'O' Gunz," and "You Know My Steez." And new tracks, usually the bane of any best-of collection, provide quite a few highlights here -- including "Full Clip," "Discipline" featuring Total, and "All 4 Tha Ca$h." Also, the set compiles several notable B-sides -- "The ? Remainz," "Credit Is Due," and "You Know My Steez Remix" -- as well as soundtrack works like "1/2 & 1/2" from Blade, "Gotta Get Over" from Trespass, and "The Militia II Remix" from Belly. Though Guru's monotone raps can grate over the course of two hours, Full Clip documents one of the best, most underrated hip-hop groups ever, from their jazzy beginnings into Premier's harder productions from the mid-'90s and beyond. [Full Clip was also released in a clean version, with all vulgarities removed.]
