Rest In Peace Guru!

I was so sad to hear these news earlier today. Guru is a legend that left us an amazing musical history that can be studied for many years to come. Guru had one of the most recognizable voices in the game, and the illest lazy flow. The music of Gang Starr was completely balanced in every way. It was a perfect formula of hip-hop. It had an unbelievable amount of soul both lyrically and musically. When I was a youngster back in the day, I remember my older brother constantly bumping jazzmatazz vol.1, but my favorite joint was "code of the streets" I have so many memories to that particular song.

Rest in peace Guru, and may your music live forever through us!

"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. The work I have done with Solar represents a legacy far beyond its time and is my most creative and experimental to date. I hope that our music will receive the attention it deserves as it is some of the best work I have done and represents some of the best years of my life." -Guru
