Gang Starr Released 'Moment of Truth' On This Day In 1998

Moment of Truth is the fifth album by hip hop duo Gang Starr, released on March 31, 1998 by Noo Trybe Records and Virgin Records. Gang Starr recorded Moment of Truth in sessions at D&D Studios.

Released four years after its previous album, Hard to Earn, this album could be perceived as a comeback, with a newer, updated style of the group’s already-established jazz-tinged hip hop, as stated by Guru in the introduction. Lyrically, the album is more emotional and socially conscious than previous installments. This album features more guest artists than previous Gang Starr releases. Collaborations include songs with Inspectah Deck, Scarface, G-Dep, Freddie Foxxx, K-Ci & JoJo, M.O.P. and more. Production on the album features heftier, more melodic, and more mature beats from DJ Premier.
