Real shame. I was listening to Moment of Truth just the other day.

Him and Premo were one of the best duos to do it imo


#2

one of the few rappers i found truly timeless, this is sad.


#3

Wow. This is truly sad. I was just listening to Jazzamatazz Vols 1 & 2 the other day. RIP.


#4

Wow my heart just broke right now. I can’t believe this just happened.


#5

i mean RIP and all, but the nigga sounds like a bitter asshole.


#6

I don’t think this is all of the story. I don’t trust Solar one bit, and Premo had been by the hospital and was the first one to release a statement concerning Guru’s health, only to have it counteracted by Solar speaking for Guru. I don’t trust this fucking snake, nor do I buy that letter. You mention Solar four times and your son once? Really? I call bullshit.

Regardless, R.I.P. to one of the greats. Guess we’ll never know.


#7

even before he got sick guru was on some “fuck premo” shit though, refusing to say the nigga’s name and shit.


#8

I hold some skepticism too. Guru would have been heavily medicated and to have come out of a coma to announce he’s severing all ties Premo and praise Solar to the heavens is highly suspect.

I saw the video with Guru’s nephew talking about how he couldn’t see his uncle because Solar was posing as a family member and not allowing anyone else in. What a tragedy.


#9

Man, in times of death people do some really scummy shit. I like their music, my best friend is a huge fans so this is just shitty.

Last week Type-o Negative, this week Gangstarr, next week Bad Religion or the Toasters have a death. April is just angry at music.


#10

r.i.p muthafucka is a legend in the bean and a legend in general.


#11

fuck man one of the few mc’s i respected, his gangstarr shit was on the highest level. rip, and fuck solar with a big ass butcher knife. i hope his son does get the royalties his daddy earned for him. what a way 2 wake up.


#12

RIP Guru
Moment Of Truth is one of my favorite albums ever


#13

OMG…that just ruined my day.
I was listening to some old tracks of Gangstarr.

RIP.


#14

R.I.P. To Guru,I was bumping Moment Of Truth last night.It’s a sad day today


#15

wow rip.
Last time I saw him (~4 years?) I said he looked like he had cancer. I didnt recognize him.

And I bet there is a tragic story behind that sham letter.


#16

was guru gay?


#17

I don’t even know what to say,this is terrible.I guess we can all pay respects by playing Guru’s and Gang Starr’s music as much as possible.

My favourite Gang starr songs are [media=youtube]3V8gXmORTCQ"]DWCYK,Mass Appeal and [URL=“http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IoPeNC4k_0”[/media].

Also my favourite track from the Jazzmatazz series is [media=youtube]UT4kP7INq4U"[/media] from Jazzmatazz Vol.1

R.I.P

P.S that letter is fishy as hell


#18

Moment of Truth was my favorite track from them.

Guru will be missed.


#19

#20
