R.I.P. Keith Elam *Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal - Guru* (Gangstarr)

Man, it's been one crazy ass year to be honest. Malcolm McLaren passing last week, and now Guru. Well, people that have been really keeping up with his progress  know that he had a horrific heart attack like a month to a month and a half ago. Unfortunately, this put him in a coma state.....all the while he apparently was dealing with cancer for year and unfortunately met his demise. I have to say I definitely send out my condolences to not only Guru's fam but one out to DJ Premier as well. They were an incredible duo. From No More Mr. Nice Guy, Step in the Arena, Daily Operation, Hard to Earn, Moment of Truth, Full Clip: A Decade of Gang Starr, and The Ownerz, it's been an INCREDIBLE run for both Guru and Preemo. Despite whatever disputes they may have experienced down the line, you cannot deny the classic music they made together. I remember the first track I heard from them was "Mass Appeal". That was the ultimate track to get down to in a cypher by Gangstarr. Another track I heard when I really got into b-boying was "Skills". The video even had Rock Steady Crew rocking. Back in 2008, I used to volunteer at this summer camp in Virginia and we would perform and also teach a bit. One of the deejays I knew played "Dwyck" pretty much everytime we got down..lmao. That definitely is the summer/spring track. "Lemonade was a popular drink and it still is" - Guru

Blah..stupid embedding request disabled =/ I can't directly post "Mass Appeal" =/
