"Diamonds are forever like family and loyalty/ Or real rap songs like "C.R.E.A.M.' or 'My Melody", goes the chorus, an ode to exactly the sort of hip-hop for which Gang Starr is legendary. After 16 years of silence, the revered duo of Guru and DJ Premier has put out a surprise new single, "Family and Loyalty". Guru was the founder of the group with DJ Premier.

"Family and Loyalty" arrived ahead of Gang Starr's forthcoming new album, which Premier teased earlier this week on Twitter.

Talking of followers' wait for brand new Gang Starr music, Premier stated: "We all want the things we want right now, but I am a patient guy".

With the help of Nas, Gang Starr is gearing up to release a new album.

Premier felt the collaboration was a good fit.


"J. Cole, who would've thought you woulda been rhyming with ghosts / Guru flows forever like a diamond and most / Could never afford the precious jewels", raps the Dreamville boss.

Although details about Gang Starr's new studio effort are still scarce, DJ Premier revealed in a 2010 interview with XXL that he had several unreleased tracks with Guru. "When Cole heard the record he got the chills and knew it was a classic".

"Family and Loyalty" is a thank you from Gang Starr & J. Cole to fans and the culture that raised them.

"That's precisely why I'm blessing you with clear-cut messages/I'm destined to invest in urban sections where depression rules/I hope to hear the destitute before I leave this vestibule".
