You Can't Handle The "Truth"

After a four-year hiatus, during which Guru released another Jazzmatazz and Premo became one of the most-sought-after freelance producers in hip hop, Gang Starr returned with 1998's Moment of Truth. With Guru still on point and Premo showing off his new, hugely influential sample-chopping technique, the album seemed like a defiant hard-core rap middle-finger to the late-'90s shiny-suit era dominated by Diddy, Ma$e and Will Smith.
