    A year after releasing One of the Best Yet, DJ Premier of Gang Starr has put together an instrumental version of the album. What’s more, they’ve paired the release with a previously unreleased song called “Glowing Mic”

    While Guru died a decade ago after a battle with cancer, his partner Preemo used unreleased verses and a host of guest verses to create one of the most striking posthumous efforts in recent memory. The new instrumental version will be welcomed by DJs worldwide, but Gang Starr’s ride-or-die fan base will be drawn to the new addition, “Glowing Mic”, available in explicit and clean versions. As Premier told Rolling Stonehe found a different set of lyrics to the group’s first post-Guru release, “Mr. Gang Starr”. He explained,

    “Since the song ‘Mr. Gang Starr’ was previously released after we hadn’t worked together in so long, I noticed the multitrack session said ‘Mr. Gang Starr (Original Version)’. The lyrics and the hook are totally different so I gravitated to it and I didn’t want to use the same title and confuse people. My search for scratch ideas landed me across a song I produced for Torae ‘For the Record’ in 2011. The line says ‘I destroy the mic for my glow.’ Instantly ‘Glowing Mic’ became the title simply from hearing that line.”
