R.I.P. To A Legend


It's a sad day in hip-hop, as the industry says goodbye to one of its icons. Keith Elam, known as Guru of Gangstarr, passed away yesterday after a battle with cancer. The Gangstarr MC suffered a cardiac arrest in February after surgery to treat the disease and briefly lapsed into a coma.
A statement has be released by Guru's PR company and in particular his collaborating partner, Solar. Recently controversy plagued Solar as he was accused of keeping Guru's family always from him. In the statement, said to be written by Guru, the rapper wrote, "I have suffered with this illness for over a year. I have exhausted all medical options." He ended by saying "I write this letter with tears in my eyes, not of sorrow but of joy for what a wonderful life I have enjoyed and how many great people I have had the pleasure of meeting."
