Gang Starr is back after a long hiatus to bring you a brand-spanking new album 16 years in the making titled “One of the Best Yet.”

Speculation about a new album gained steam when they dropped the new single “Family and Loyalty” back in September. The track also featured none other than J. Cole, and fans were stoked an album might be in the works.

Now, it seems the wishes were answered with the first new album from Gang Starr in 16 years since the 2003 project Owners. However, the latest release is short a member following the passing of MC Guru back in 2010 after a battle with cancer.

“I never lost faith, or wavered. I still felt it inside of me, it just happened to be nine years later (after Guru’s passing)” said Premier about releasing a new Gang Starr album. “We all want the things we want right now, but I am a patient guy. I hung in there and I just kept believing.”

He continued: “This album means everything to me. It’s a continuation of what I never wanted to end. It’s a very foreign place for me and very emotional. I get happy, sad, excited; my feelings are kind of all over the place. But predominantly, just very happy to be making music with Guru again.”
