Takin’ It Back Tuesday: Gang Starr - “Militia” f. Big Shug & Freddie Foxxx

Gang Starr

“Militia” is one of my many favorite tracks from Gang Starr’s 1998 album, Moment Of Truth. The whole album is great, but, you can buy their greatest hits collection, Full Clip: A Decade of Gang Starr for even more gems.

If you’re too young to know about Gang Starr, you can learn your Hip Hop History lesson in under six minutes below. We are fortunate that Guru left us with so much great music before he passed, so listen to it! - Liz
