"You Know My Steez"

Gang Starr announced their first album in four years with "You Know My Steez," proving that, although Premo had worked with Nas, Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z in the interim, even those greats didn't have the indescribable chemistry that the superproducer did with Guru. Premo's opening adlib ("It's the real...hip hop") became an official rallying cry for purists in an era obsessed with bling, shiny suits and million-dollar videos.
