^Amazing. So good to hear Guru again despite him being gone. One of the best to do it.

It's no overstatement to say that Countryman is the most influential album of my life.

Shaped everything I listen to now.

The Where My Mind Is At 12 was one of the first records I ever bought (Selectadisc). Don't think he released a huge amount after it but yeah Countryman is a UK Hip-Hop essential.

Swear down this isn't Guru on this track

Sounds nothing like him in parts and the flow is off, certain its his son being passed off as him.

Sounds ropey as, but does sound like him to me. Did you listen to the Hip Hop saved my life podcast with Premo? On that he was talking about how some of the Guru vocals he got from Solar were not great but he wanted to buy all of them. I just assume that he’s running out of quality stuff and having to patch together the shit bits?

Sounds like him to start off then there are parts that sound nothing like him IMO.

I'm certain his son is doing some of it.

Litened to the hip hop saved my life which was good. But if your a fan of gangster/primo I found this podcast really insightful, all about the history with some great stories.

So good, ey? Really rate JD Reid as a producer. One of the best things to drop in 2020, imo. Visuals are great too.

Nice one - not heard. Gangstarr are my favourite hip hop group of all time and Premo is my favourite producer so will definitely check this out.
