R.I.P. Keith Elam (aka GURU) July 17, 1966 - April 19, 2010

On Monday, April 19th the world lost a true Hip-Hop legend. Keith Elam, better known as Guru, passed away on April 19th 2010 following a heart attack and coma as well as a lengthy battle with cancer. Guru made a name for himself by delivering deep, smooth lyrics with his monotone style that was one of the most instantly recognizable in Hip-Hop. Longtime Hip-Hop fans will remember the string of classic albums released by Guru and DJ Premier as Gang Starr and the subsequent Jazzmatazz series that Guru embarked on.
