Gang Starr have shared full details of their first album in 16 years, titled 'One of the Best Yet'.

Set for release on December 6th via Gang Starr Enterprises, the record will be their seventh album and follows on from 2003's 'The Ownerz'. 

Q-Tip, Royce Da 5’9”, J. Cole, Talib Kweli, and Ne-Yo all guest on the album which is the first from Gang Starr since member Guru's death in 2010. A press release announcing the album says that it "harkens you back to Gang Starr’s seminal work of the past, but it re-establishes their impact in a modern-day perspective".
