The 50 Greatest Gang Starr Songs

#14. Gang Starr f/Lil' Dap & Jeru the Damaja "Speak Ya Clout" (1994)

Album: Hard to Earn
Label: Chrysalis/EMI Records

Like the original, the sequel of "I'm the Man" has three MCs over three different beats. Guru's three-spot slot plays on the subdued side (probably apropos given his rhyme style). But Premier outdoes himself on Jeru and Dap's parts, piercing ears with beats that sound like apocalyptic air raids and back-alley beatdowns, respectively.
