I’m sure most of you know by now, but late last night/early this morning we lost a true Hip-Hop legend – Guru (best known for being one half of Gangstarr and his Jazzmatazz series) – who succumbed to a bout with cancer.  Today is a very sad day for Hip-Hop.  Adding insult to injury, Guru’s “life partner” Solar released a scathing message “from” Guru’s deathbed, which is beyond suspicious. However, I’m not here to dwell on the negative, and would rather celebrate Guru’s life and contributions to Hip-Hop. 

This morning Chicago’s music man George Daniels took to Twitter to reminisce on Keith Elam.  I thought it was only right to share.
