R.I.P. Guru of Gangstarr

leave a comment »

Legendary rap artist Keith Elam, p/k/a Guru (of Gangstarr) passed away on Monday (4/19) after a lengthy battle with cancer at the young age of 43. Guru’s recent manager, Solar, expressed his condolences in the following statement: “The world has lost one of the best MCs and Hip-Hop icons of all-time — my loyal best friend, partner, and brother, Guru. Guru has been battling cancer for well over a year and has lost his battle! This is a matter that Guru wanted private until he could beat it, but tragically, this did not happen. The cancer took him. Now the world has lost a great man and a true genius.” Solar also posted a letter that Guru supposedly wrote in his final days explaining his disease, his non-profit organization, and some surprising final words for DJ Premier. R.I.P. Keith Elam and I send my condolences to his family. Here is one of my favorite Gangstarr records, Moment of Truth:
