A strange one this and it cannot exactly be classed as a true solo album from the great bald head slick himself. In fact, he only features on three of the album's twelve tracks. Not sure of the story behind this album but it looks like it might have been a sampler for a record label that Guru was maybe going to start with some or all of the featured artists? Anyway, apart from the king himself, this 1995 compilation provides a nice selection of hip hop artists from the New York scene who were affiliated with the Gang Starr collective at the time.

Some would go on to bigger and better things (Bahamadia, Jeru The Damaja, M.O.P.) but others would struggle to make a name for themselves in the game (Baybe and Fabidden anyone?) Standout tracks include any featuring the main man himself, Big Shug's lazy wordplay (two tracks) and some rare lyrical gymnastics from Wu-affiliate True Master. The legendary Group Home also contribute a lesser known track which is a must for completists like yours truly. Overall, it has a grimy and lo-fi production which only adds appeal to its underground aesthetic. And it's not the easiest album to track down judging by its slightly raised price on this site. While not an essential hip hop album by any means, if you're a fan of Guru or Gang Starr it's well worth its place in your collection.

Rare Guru / Gangstarr Foundation 16 Jun. 2002
By Big S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I just uncovered this rare collection of gems by Guru and his peoples. It features guests like Jeru, M.O.P, Group Home , and Bahamadia. Big Shug is on 2 tracks {Do what pays ya' & Momentum w/ Guru}. True Master from the wu shows up for a solo and truly brings that raw 95' wu style of beats . He also produces the Hannibal Stax(once known as FABIDDEN) song, "high energy"(One of the albums best). Guru is on a total of 3 songs ,but his main achievement on this one was flexxin' his production muscle. He manned the boards for a majority of the c.d.. Overall, this c.d. is a must buy for gangstarr fans and it's very hard to find ,so you mine as well buy it here.peace
