Gang Starr’s Guru Dead at 43

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.  Click below for my tribute playlist and click here for a tribute from DJ Premier.
