Owning Up

It took five years, but the old-schoolers of Gang Starr are finally on the comeback with The Ownerz. Guru, for one, is still hungry.

"What those idiots at my label don't understand is that [superstar rappers] say to me and Premier, We love you guys!," Guru says. "They think we deserve a shot. The set-up isn't right."

"But we're still in the game," he says moments later. "Our music is relevant. We've never been on a rap label or hip-hop label. We signed to a major [label] and got jerked."

"I get some feelings of jealousy. I can't front."

Staying in the game: Veterans Gang Starr maintain their edge.
