I’m an 80s baby. Combine the words “Big Shug,” “M.O.P.,” “Fat Joe” and “produced by DJ Premier” into a single sentence and I’m sold already. That’s the kind of stuff tailor-made to satisfy a grumpy old hip-hop head like me. Like we mentioned earlier (but this time we have a pic!) The real treat with this is the small hardback book included with co-founder of the Gang Starr foundation Big Shug’s new album.
In addition to the 17 all new studio cuts Brick Records has presented a timeless package; a hard back, 36 page book chronicling The True History of Gang Starr as told by Big Shug, plus anecdotes from his 20+ year career, rare never before seen vintage photos and more. Through his words and his music, Big Shug truly shows here why he is 4-EVA. Big Shug’s I.M. 4-Eva LP and The True History of Gang Starr will be released on 7-24-2012.
So there ya have it. Old heads like me still buy physical copies of music on the regular (vynil even!) and this is one of those occasions you can really see why.
