Guru of Gang Starr has heart attack and is in a coma.
« Reply #10 on: March 01, 2010, 03:21:21 AM »
One of Hip Hop's most influential emcees is presently in critical condition, several sources say. Guru, one half of pioneering '80s, '90s and '00s Brooklyn-based Hip Hop group Gang Starr suffered a heart attack this weekend, according to the emcee and producer's sister Tricia.

HipHopWired.com says that the emcee, born Keith Elam is presently in a coma from complications of going into cardiac arrest. Guru is best known for penning hits such as "Words I Manifest," "Discipline" and "Just To Get A Rep." Between 1986 and 2004, Guru (an acronym Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal) founded Gang Starr, a duo with DJ Premier that also includes Gang Starr Foundation affiliates Big Shug, Group Home, Jeru Da Damaja and Smiley Da Ghetto Child.

Born and raised in the Boston area, Guru relocated to Brooklyn in the late '80s, where Gang Starr released its first singles with 45 King as producer. By 1988, the group evolved as a duo with Premier, and released their 1989 full-length debut No More Mr. Nice Guy on Wild Pitch Records. The duo would go on to release classic albums on Chrysalis/Virgin/EMI, such as 1994's Hard To Earn and 1998's Moment Of Truth. Gang Starr's last album, 2003's The Ownerz featured Jadakiss, Fat Joe and longtime affiliate Freddie Foxxx. The platinum group toured the world and released several greatest hits collections, most notably Full Clip: A Decade Of Gang Starr in 1999. The duo announced their split in 2004, reportedly due to creative and personal differences.

As a solo artist, Guru released four volumes of Jazzmatazz, Jazz-inspired recordings with legendary genre artists such as Donald Byrd and Roy Ayers. Guru has launched two labels in his career, Ill Kid Records and 7Grand, where he and production partner Solar worked alongside artists such as Talib Kweli, Damian Marley and Jean Grae.

HipHopDX extends prayerful thoughts to one of our staff's most-respected emcees, the Elam family, Solar, DJ Premier and fans. We will keep you updated.

UPDATE: Miss Info confirms these reports with sources close to Guru. The emcee is presently in a New York hospital, awaiting surgery. DJ Eclipse spoke with DJ Premier, who also confirmed this. Premier was going to address the matter on Eclipse's Sirius Hip Hop Nation show, but later changed his decision.

NahRight.com has compiled Twitter reactions from notable artists including Jean Grae, ?uestlove, Royce Da 5'9" and Jay Electronica.

DX will continue to report on this.

No need for the eye rolling. He's been discrediting Premier recently, calling him an R&B producer. He's also been saying that he alone is Gang Starr.

Not what I heard. I heard Premo and Guru are actually aboutto release the next Gang Starr album in summer this year so they can't exactly be on bad terms! I'm guessing this might push the release back though unfortunately.

Where the hell did you hear this? Guru was planning on releasing a solo album with a different producer but not Premier. Premier is busy at the moment with quite a few projects. A Gang Starr album is not 1 of them.

I read this actually this morning in an article on Guru's heart attack on The Guardian's website. It explicity states that Premo and Guru were to "Imminently release new material as Gang Starr".

I'll get the link for you mate.

there it is. Halfway down it says "Guru recently hinted on Twitter that he and DJ Premier were set to release new Gang Starr material imminently".

I'll admit, hinting on twitter is hardly fact, but there it is, its obviously a rumour going round.

Yer, don't believe everything you read in the papers and Twitter accounts. There are plenty of fake accounts out there. If there was a chance, I'm pretty sure Premier would have come out and announced it as he is very keen on doing another album.
