R.I.P GURU: July 17, 1966 – April 19, 2010

It saddens us to report that last night (Mon, April 19) Keith Elam aka “Guru” lost his battle w/ liver cancer… he was 43 yrs old

“The world has lost one of the best MCs and Hip-Hop icons of all-time — my loyal best friend, partner, and brother… 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,

Before his passing, the rapper was able to write a letter to all of his fans… You can read the letter from Guru online @ AllHipHop.Com

In the meantime, we remember “Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal” and pay our respects to his family, friends & ALL of his fans… (we are one of them)

In honor of Gang Starr, the Jazzmatazz projects, and all the music that Guru has blessed us with… here’s a special tribute mix by DJ KleanCutt of the Kracker Nuttz available for download (FREE)

It’s a quick mix of some of the obvious & some of our own personal favorite tracks from Guru himself…
