“Supa Star” is on my list of Top 5 DJ Premier beats and it may very well be number one. I think that the first time that I ever heard it played, it was just the instrumental and to be honest, that’s how I prefer it. Group Home, comprised of the ambiguously rapping pair Lil Dap and Melachi the Nutcracker, were Gang Starr affiliates and as we all know, if you’re down with Preme you’re going to get dope beats off the rip. Group Home’s talent may have been so-so but they weren’t the WORST that I’ve heard if that’s any kind of an acceptable answer. This might add an insult to injury but Livin’ Proof, their debut album that features “Supa Star”, only gets play as an instrumental album in my residence.
