The hip-hop community has taken a huge loss with the passing of Keith Elma, a.k.a Guru, one half of the legendary group Gang Starr. The MC has lost his battle with cancer that has been ongoing for the last year or so. Guru was such a powerful voice within hip-hop and the music industry in general, from his work with Gang Starr to his personal projects with his Jazzmatazz series of records which fused hip-hop and jazz together. I am personally a huge fan of his work with Gang Starr, as anyone who was into hip-hop through the 90′s and early 2000′s would have been. Keep reading for a few of my all time favorite Gang Starr songs and experience the genius that is the Guru.
