Yesterday, hip hop lost a soldier in Guru when he passed of complications due to cancer after suffering a heart attack on February 28th. He was forty-three years young, and a dynamic force that should be recognized for his contributions to the game.
If you don’t know who Guru is, PLEASE take the time out today to enlighten yourself and others because this man’s voice should be recognized by anyone who claims themselves to be a “true” hip hop head.
Here’s the Gangstarr I grew up on, “Mass Appeal”; I was only eight when it dropped, but I knew what was up.
Check out some clips I scrounged up just to give you a taste of what Guru and Gangstarr was all about.
You will be missed, Guru, sincerely.
