Keith “Guru” Elam died on April 20, 2010 at the age of 43 after a long battle with cancer. I knew Guru personally and he was always nice and humble when we spoke. Regardless of all the rumors that swirled around his death, he left a lasting musical legacy, both with his co-member of Gang Starr, DJ Premier, and solo. He will be missed.
