Guru – Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal

Standard

Slightly late on this one, but haven’t been updating things recently due to work but it was a shame to hear of the sad loss of another great poet, artist and hiphop MC and pioneer, Guru, also affiliated with Gang Starr & DJ Premier. Guru passed away recently at the young age of 48, who had been battling cancer. Guru founded Gang Starr in 1987 and hassince released a number of critically acclaimed albums.

I can’t remember exactly when I first heard Guru on a track but definetly Gang Starr’s “You know my steez” always sticks out. His voice and flow over Premier’s beats were magical.

“Code of the Streets” has always been a favorite, never knew they had a video done so here it is. RIP Guru.
