According to various sources and legitimate websites – HIPHOPWIRED and HIPHOPDX.COM – Guru has suffered from a heart attack, is in a coma and will undergo surgery from his cardiac arrest. Fortunately the rumors about his death are false and hopefully Guru, born Keith Elam, will recover soon.
If you don’t know, GURU is comprised of 1/2 of legendary ‘underground’ Hip Hop group Gangstarr, with DJ Premier. Having caught the attention of Hip Hip heads with their joint Mass Appeal, they gained mainstream attention with their album Moment of Truth in the late 1990’s. [More info on Guru, he is also known for his solo career projects entitled – Jazzmatazz (volume series).]
Two of my favorite joints from the Moment of Truth are shown at the bottom. Enjoy and hope you get better Guru.
