Unfortunately Hip-hop (and Music in general) suffered a loss, after the death of one half of the most influential duos in its history. Guru (Keith Elam) of the iconic hip hop group Gang Starr, died after a number of different health issues on the 19th of April. Guru was well known for his deep voice, charm and most of all, thoughtful lyricism. With DJ Premier, he created a signature sound in hip-hop, rhyming over Jazz laced beats and of course Premier’s trademark sampling. Gang Starr never went Platinum or even had a number one single, but they had a true impact on the game and in a day when Musicans don’t even make it to 15 mins, that is saying something. R.I.P Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal. You will be missed. and if anyone asks…. We know your Steez.
