The Essential SOSB/Gang Starr Tracker

So Wes and I love us some Gang Starr. In fact, it might one of the only places where our music tastes intersect, save for Phil Collins and some smooth ealry 80’s R & B. Wes had the idea to work a Guru lyric into one of his posts, and I loved it enough to run with it. Now it’s turned into a full-blown challenge: Everytime one of us is going to post, the other one has to pick the song they need to pull a quote from. Hopefully, this little exercise will serve the dual purpose of educating our readership and giving a healthy boost to our already fledgling street-cred.One can only hope.
