R.I.P. Guru (Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal) 1966-2010

This is very sad I was bracing myself for the worst and unfortunately it has happened. I really hope these bullshit networks like MTV do him justice and play alot of his videos the kids listening to rap music now must know who Guru is and what he and Dj Premier have done for hip hop so many classic tracks. He will be missed greatly. The word conscious has been attached to many mc’s not worthy of that accolade but Guru was a real conscious rapper who understood the importance words and what kind of words you use and how you use them.

A rough voice but with a smooth flow to go along with it Guru was one of those rappers you never get tired of hearing spit. It’s a terrible shame that he never got to reconcile with his long term producer Premier the chemistry that had was special and hard to replicate. Very few rappers and producer groups have had the career of the group once known as Gangstarr.

R.I.P

your rhymes will live on forever
