35)Gang Starr – Code Of The Streets

Song: Code Of The Streets

Album: Hard To Earn

Year: 1994

This is self-explanatory, just listen to it and immerse yourself in the feel of what it was to be a New Yorker in the early 90’s. When he wanted to be, Guru was a good producer in his own right (which is why that whole Solar mess will forever baffle me) as he did this song and Moment Of Truth’s pivotal “Make Em Pay”. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say it was DJ Premier who CUT UP THE MORSE CODE FOR THE HOOK, which still leaves me in a stupor. Guru’s performance here is great to me, but it’s all about the urgency of the beat and the hook for me
