DJ Premier Guru Tribute Mix

Here’s the Guru tribute from the legendary DJ Premier (one of the greats–producer, DJ and person).

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 here or above for my tribute playlist.
