"Just to Get a Rep"

"Just to Get a Rep," the first single from the Gang's sophomore LP Step in the Arena, immediately announced they were already moving beyond the conscious raps and jazz samples that put them on the map, hinting at the harder beats and gritty street tales that defined their future work. Premo's use of an obscure sample from French electronic music pioneer Jean Jacques Perry raised the bar for crate diggers everywhere.
