Twenty-five years ago, Nas left a voicemail on DJ Premier’s answering machine that the fans got to hear. The smoky-voiced Rap phenom joined DJ Scratch, MC Eiht, and A.G., among others, on the “Aiight Chill” interlude for Gang Starr’s fourth album, Hard To Earn. A few weeks later, Nas dropped his debut LP, Illmatic, featuring several tracks produced by Preemo. It also included a vocal shout-out to the respected Hip-Hop duo of Guru and Premier.

Now, in 2019, Nas leaves a new voicemail in a clip. The short video features a hand-held shot of a wall-mounted phone. Nas, whose Mass Appeal company takes its name from a Hard To Earn single, recreates his ’94 message, except for one thing. With the Jazz music playing, this time, Nas asks, “Yo, is it true there’s a new Gang Starr album? That’s crazy, man. Let me know. Aiight, chill.”

The new clip comes after other suggestive social media posts from the Grammy Award-winning legend. In recent years, Premier has worked with Griselda Records, Drake, Dr. Dre, and others. Additionally, Gang Starr created official social media accounts this month, endorsed by Premier. The DJ/producer has remained close with members of Guru’s family, providing royalties related to official merchandise and other revenue.

Gang Starr last released The Ownerz in 2003 on Virgin/EMI Records. Afterwards, apart from some music on Big Shug’s Who’s Hard, the two men did not release any additional Gang Starr recordings before Guru’s 2010 cancer-related death. With Guru as a founder, the two men became Gang Starr officially in the late 1980s, after the Massachusetts native MC and the Texas-born producer linked in New York City. 1989’s No More Mr. Nice Guy followed.
