Watch Gang Starr's Video For "Glowing Mics (Founders Remix)"

By Alec Banks

DJ Premier has dropped the new video for Gang Starr's "Glowing Mics (Founders RMX)."

PREEMO produced 2019s One Of The Best Yet, the first Gang Starr album of new material since 2003s The Ownerz, using previously-unheard vocals from the late Guru, who died in 2010. The remix features Gang Starr Foundation's Big Shug, and the video has Shug's son Trumayne and Guru's son Keith Casim honoring their fathers by rapping their verses.

“I didn’t originally plan on doing a video for “Glowing Mics” (Founders Remix),” DJ Premier said in an interview with HipHopDX. “I had a conversation with KC [Guru’s son Keith Casim] about the remix featuring a Big Shug verse and he suggested that he and Shug’s son [Trumayne] pay homage to their fathers with their respective roles; and he convinced me to get a video done.”

“This video was created because I loved KC’s idea for the visual and once the decision was made, I visualized Spice Adams picking up where we left off with the ‘Bad Name’ video and when I called him he was totally with it.”
