Guru, the legendary rapper of GangStarr and Jazzmatazz fame died yesterday. A month ago -FUPPETS- had talked about his then-recent heart-attack and the coma that followed. Doctors performed surgery on Guru (real name Keith Elam), who seemed to be doing better as a result.
However, it appears that his medical issues had left him very weak, and he died yesterday, April 19, 2010.
Originally paired with DJ Premier back in 1985, with whom Guru had a falling out and had not talked to for 7 years, and then joining up with producer Solar, Guru had the lyricism, rhymes and voice to make -FUPPETS- hair stand on end. He will be missed.
