The 50 Greatest Gang Starr Songs

#31. Gang Starr "Tonz 'O' Gunz" (1994)

Album: Hard to Earn
Label: Chrysalis/EMI Records

The most valuable musical development on Hard to Earn: Premier's infatuation with noise over notes (e.g. "Speak Ya Clout," "Brainstorm"). "Tonz 'O' Gunz" completes the LP's raucous triumvirate, an onslaught of screaming bomb-drop whistles over Truck Turner typewriter hi-hats that's ideally suited for Guru's verbal disarmament treatise.
