Overview

By the release of Moment of Truth in the spring of 1998, Gang Starr were rap veterans, having spent nearly ten years as professionals. That elapsed time meant that the album was positioned as something of a comeback, since the duo had been inactive for four years, and it had been even longer since they had a hit. They knew they had to come back hard, and Moment of Truth almost accomplishes their goals. Retaining the swing of their jazz-rap fusions, Gang Starr nevertheless have their rhythms hit at a street level, and Guru's rhymes are his best in years. It may not have the thrill of discovery that made their first albums so exciting, and it does suffer from a few slow spots, but on the whole it's a successful return.

This quite possibly the best album that came out in 98. You can listen to this album all the way through. Primos beats are just sick, and Guru is at his best on the mic. With Freddy Foxxx, MOP, Krumb Snatcha, Shug, and Scarface puttin it down on hot tracks.

Everyone talks about all of the other albums that were released in '98 that sold millions: such as Aquemini, Hard Knock Life, and The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Not saying that they were bad, but this album just blows them all out of the water because it so simple, yet so extraordinary!Definitely one of my favorite albums of all time!

Just put Guru and Premier together then add an allstar cast and you get one of the best Cd's of the late 90's. Guru is just sick with his rhyme scheme and you know premier will hit you with the perfect beats. Just check out ''Work'', ''You know my steez, and the best track on the album in this critcs opinion ''Above the clouds''. Five stars is a must for this example of rap perfection.
