UPDATE: Guru Suffers Cardiac Arrest, In a Coma

It truly saddened me to see this news come to my attention yesterday; at first I thought it was just something going around the internet, and unfortunately I found out that it was very real. According to various reports, Keith Elam (AKA Guru) suffered cardiac complications over the weekend and is now in a coma.

I personally can’t believe this. This man (along with Premier) has crafted some of my absolute favorite music; Gangstarr’s Moment of Truth is one of my favorite Hip-Hop albums of all-time, and everything this man has done is pretty much gold. My prayers go out to Guru and his family, and I hope for the absolute best and a fast recovery.

I brought this back up to the top of posts because of the fuckery that was yesterday. Guru’s nephew has come out and made it public that Solar (Guru’s right hand man and producer) has the rights to make all the decisions concerning Guru’s health; Solar is completely cutting off Guru’s family of information, and he won’t let the family see Guru. This truly sounds like a bunch of bullshit, and I’m sure you will feel the same way.
