Farewell to Gangstarr’s Guru: July 17, 1966 – April 19, 2010

Keith Elam aka Guru, recognized as one of the most important hip-hop figures, has passed away from his fight with cancer.  Guru and DJ Premiere formed the group Gangstarr, which rose to fame during the 80’s with six highly successful albums.  After the group broke up, Guru collaborated with producer Solar and started their own label.

“The world has lost one of the best MCs and Hip-Hop icons of all-time — my loyal best friend, partner, and brother, Guru,” Solar said in a statement. “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.”
