"Now You're Mine"

Originally featured on the White Men Can't Jump soundtrack — hence Guru's nonstop basketball metaphors — this song was in many ways Gang Starr's last jazz-rap excursion. Groups like Digable Planets had made the subgenre the Gang pioneered seem soft and left field, better suited for college dorms and coffee shops. But here Gang Starr showed that it could fit in just as well on the corner, or even the court.
