Gang Starr has shared the music video for “Family and Loyalty,” their first release in 16 years which features J. Cole and unreleased vocals by the iconic late rapper Guru. The visual, which was directed by hip-hop legend Fab 5 Freddy, includes archival footage of the legendary MC as well as a cameo by his 19-year-old son Keith Casim.
“Keith was nine when his father passed away, and he is now nineteen,” DJ Premier explained in the press release. “I used to babysit him. He made me feel like Guru was there with me. I told him he has the same look in his eyes as his father and everyone on set commented on how striking the resemblance is. It was really important to me to have Guru’s son be a major focus of the video.”
