Music: Gang Starr’s Guru: “A great man and a true genius”

  • 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.
  • Guru’s best friend and partner-in-crime Solar • On the death of his creative partner. The rapper, best known for his time in Gang Starr, died today of cancer at 43. While he spent much of his career working with DJ Premier, he made it clear in a note written from the hospital before his death that he didn’t want his Gang Starr collaborator to continue on without him. “I had nothing to do with him in life for over 7 years and want nothing to do with him in death. Solar has my life story and is well informed on my family situation, as well as the real reason for separating from my ex-DJ.” A sad, awful loss for the music world. source
