RIP Guru

Guru was way too young... As a fellow NY transplant, I definitely loved the intros and interludes on albums when Guru was talkin' about bein a "Boston Nigga" and how he came to NY with a crate and built a base. A lot of cats contributed to the Golden Era sound but Gangstarr was the foundation as people like to say. Guru did his thing on the solo projects too.

I don't know what to think about his letter talkin bout Solar and Premiere. Solar seem like some Rasputin type dude. I hope it isn't as bad as Rakim and Eric B. and that in the end, Guru wasn't thinking about beefing with Premiere calling him a "DJ". Too much that he can be proud of in life, I hope he rests in peace... You will be missed.
