We were saddened to have to go on the air tonight a mere one day after legendary GangStarr MC, Guru, passed away after his lengthy battle with cancer. For years while part of and apart, Guru ran game in the biz. He is, hands down, one of the most influential MCs of all time. The Urban Renewal Project gives our deepest condolences to Guru's family. Even though he is gone, he leaves behind a legacy of sound that will serve to school people for generations to come. We got the ball rolling by laying down a ton of Guru material, with more to come.
On a lighter note, a light green note, it’s 420 and what could possibly be a better place to celebrate this day, than in Vancity. So we are sure all you kush heads got it going on. We also had music for the smokers bumping as well.
There is tons going on in here as well. We just had Son Real live in the studio (www.myspace.com/sonreal) and he has got a new mixtape droppin, so keep your ears peeled for that. Doing some big thangs!
