A True Hip-Hop Pioneer Guru of Gang Starr Rest In Peace

I did hear that Keith "Guru" Elam was getting treatment for Cancer. I also heard a lot of other things involved with his power of Attorney battle with his manager and his Nephew. However, I don't want to talk about that. I want to talk about how great and synonymous he and my favorite Dj, Dj Premier were and how their music will live on forever. Its ironic now , put a couple of my old Gang Starr CD's up for sale on amazon 4 months ago ( both of which have sold in the past 2 days). Its a double edged sword. You can look at this two ways, when he was alive people weren't trying to hear him; or they just wanted to show support and know more about the man who just passed away. I can still remember when I got their double CD ( I will never sell that). I think I listened to it for about 2 days straight. They were the reason I found out about Group Home, Bahamadia, MOP ,freddie Foxxx, and Big Shug..( If you don't know these guys get familiar...) I was hoping for another Gang Starr album. I know Premier produces for others ,but it just won't be the same without Guru. Rest in peace. That Notorious Song is playing in my head right now as I package this Gang Starr CD.... Much Love...
