Guru From Gang Starr Dead at Age 43

Guru who is part of one of the most well known rap groups (Gang Starr) was found dead this morning. I found out earlier today, but I haven't been around to post anything up. Guru was born in the Boston area and he was one of the leaders of rap since the 1980's. He was one of the first to use jazz beats in hip hop. Guru has been battling cancer for quite some time now and today it finally took him for good. To me, this is something that is quite sad, especially since Gang Starr has always been one of my favorite rap groups.

Here's two of my personal favorites. No Need for Stress by Guru...

And Playtawin by Gang Starr.

Rest easy up there Guru.
