DrGreeNThumB420 Gang Starr one of my favs of all time. Was just bumping Moment of Truth album other day. Sad to see Guru and Premo didnt reunite I was always hoping for that. He had some bad things to say about Premier in his farewell letter.... wonder what really went down between them. RIP Guru. Beantown legend.

R.i.p. Guru

Sad day. He was a Boston local, a really stand-up guy, and a gifted muscician.

...Guru found solo fame in 1993 when he released the first volume of his Jazzmatazz series, an all-star project that featured a number of collaborations with jazz icons such as Branford Marsalis, Donald Byrd, Roy Ayers and Ronny Jordan, as well as vocals from Solaar and N'Dea Davenport of the Brand New Heavies. The album's mixture of jazz and rap was considered pioneering at the time, and the record spawned the hit "Trust Me." Guru would go on to make four volumes in the series.

Guru wrote his farewell letter while in the hospital, according to Solaar. "I, Guru, am writing this letter to my fans, friends and loved ones around the world," it begins. "I have had a long battle with cancer and have succumbed to the disease. I have suffered with this illness for over a year. I have exhausted all medical options.

"I have a non-profit organization called Each One Counts dedicated to carrying on my charitable work on behalf of abused and disadvantaged children from around the world and also to educate and research a cure for this terrible disease that took my life. I write this 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.
