Gang Starr

Step In The Arena: CD


Release Date: 1 January, 1990

Step in the Arena is the second studio album by hip hop duo Gang Starr, commercially released on January 15, 1991. Reflecting the combination of inner-city upbringing and college education which both members share, Gang Starr manages to attain the perfect balance of intellect and street credibility; harder than so-called hard-core, more experimental than "experimental hip-hop" and funkier than 99.9 percent of mainstream rap's party jam output.
