R.I.P. Guru

Posted on April 20, 2010 |

Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal is no more.

Guru (born Keith Elam) lost his lengthy battle with cancer.

He was 47.

Too damn young to kick the bucket like that.

One of the best MC in all of hip hop and with his ex-partner DJ Premier,
part of the most influential East Coast MC/DJ tandem in Gang Starr.

Can’t forget all those cool Jazzmatazz records.

He will be missed.

Update ( 04. 27. 2010 )

A touching tribute from his brother Harry published in the Boston Globe.

Also, DJ Premier put together a mix in tribute to Guru which you can download
right here.
