That was a great year.

I don't think I can decide between Daily Operation, Hard to Earn, and Moment of Truth. All of 'em are near-classics, none quite besting the other.

Hard To Earn beats Daily Operation by a nose. Less filler. But "Take It Personal" is my favorite Gang Starr single!

moment of truth is pretty good on the whole but I could never vote for a record that contains "at the mall"

Guru sounds so wise and seen-it-all. Who cares if he sounds half-asleep.

"The Planet" "code of the streets," "speak ya clout," "suckas need bodyguards," "dwyck" and of course motherfucking mass appeal, basically flawless

is dwyck an acronym for something

i just realized i have no idea why thats the title

dmr, Friday, 26 October 2007 17:49 (nine years ago) Permalink

it stands for 'do what ya can, kid'

and what, Friday, 26 October 2007 17:54 (nine years ago) Permalink

i miss nice & smooth ;_; ;_;

apparently, this site has an interview with guru explaining what "dwyck" means:

GURU: “It was just a slang that we used to use back then. It was like a slang thing we used to do. Greg Nice used to do it to everybody. Biz Markie started it actually. You used be in a crowd and say someone’s name and go ‘Yo! Son!’ The person would turn around and go ‘What? What?’ and you would say: ‘Dwyck!’. It’s like ‘My dick!’. It means the male genitalia. We switched it up to ‘Dwyck’. It was just some sh*t to psyche each other out.”

premo refers to the track as dwyck (do what ya can kid) on one of his official mixtape tracklists

Damn, are you guys kidding? I always thought of Hard to Earn as one of their worst...it's not bad, but I'd say it's barely above average. Daily Operation is one of my favorite rap albums. Moment of Truth is great too.

Reatards Unite, Monday, 29 October 2007 00:32 (nine years ago) Permalink

In 2007 a social network was created using a moniker of the album name. Daily Operation is a hip hop social network dedicated to the advocacy of superior artists such as Gang Starr.

this was a weird poll

Wimmels, Wednesday, 10 May 2017 11:46 (two months ago) Permalink

would be worth a re-poll. Moment of Truth seems to have gained steam over the years. I could see it giving Hard to Earn a run. I would vote for it, def my go to GS album any more.
