GROUP HOME RE-UNITES
FOR GURU TRIBUTE ALBUM “GIFTED UNLIMITED RHYMES UNIVERSAL”
For Immediate Release,
August 26th, 2010
Babygrande Records is proud to announce the upcoming release of Group Home’s “Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal” on September 28th. Honing their skills for over 20 years, Group Home is back to pay homage to their longtime friend and collaborator, the legendary Guru.
Group Home has unquestionably proven that they are one of the most important groups to come out of hip-hop’s revered “golden age.” Appearing on Gang Starr’s 1994 album “Hard To Earn,” Group Home released their critically acclaimed debut album “Livin’ Proof” in 1995. Now, Lil Dap has returned with partner Melachi The Nutcracker, enlisting the help of legendary hip-hop icons Jeru The Damaja, Lord Jamar (Brand Nubian) & more as well as some unreleased heat from former partner in rhyme Guru himself, to bring experience, perspective and their unique flavor to the game with their new album “G.U.R.U.”
Set for release on September 28th by Babygrande Records, Group Home’s “Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal” is a tribute to the movement that birthed hip-hop’s most celebrated emcees and a must-have for any true fan of hip-hop.
Be sure to check out the video below where Dap and Mel talk about coming up hard in the Bronx with Guru and DJ Premier. Mel touches on slinging crack at 14 years old, and Dap recalls an incident when he was chilling with Biggie, Guru and Lil Cease, when Guru got arrested, and Dap had to drive Guru’s Jaguar around all night figuring out how to bail their friend out of jail.
