R.I.P. Guru

One of hip-hop's finest has passed away. Guru, real name Keith Elam, lost his battle with cancer Monday morning. One half of the pioneering group Gang Starr along with DJ Premier, Guru had a heart attack in February of this year and slipped into a coma.

Guru helped define the genre and he will be greatly missed by all hip-hop heads.

I've posted the video for one of my favorite tracks. If you've never heard Gang Starr or Guru then there is no better time than now to check them out.


  1. he will be truly missed! A true MC, with an amazing flow, rewind worthy lyrics. The combo with him and DJ Premier is unstoppable, one of the greatest Hip Hop groups. Miss ya already bald head slick!

  2. Nothing beats that flow paired with the "Premier Bounce." This is a real shame.
