Nobody’s invincible, no plan is foolproof

I know I’m running a tiny bit late on this one. I ain’t got much to say other than the fact that Guru was the one that made me fall in love with rap when I was a shorty back then, and that I used to be one of his students ever since. And while we’re at it, DJ Premier was the one who introduced me to scratching after all. Here’s my all time fave Gang Starr / Guru jams from the golden decade for the sake of your iPod’s mental fitness and unfuckwithability in streetsmartology.

Gang Starr – Manifest (No More Mr Nice Guy, 1989)

Gang Starr – Just To Get A Rep (Step In The Arena, 1990)

Gang Starr – No Shame In My Game (Daily Operation, 1992)

Gang Starr – Code Of The Streets (Hard To Earn, 1993)

Guru’s Jazzmatazz – No Time To Play (Guru’s Jazzmatazz Vol I, 1993)

Guru’s Jazzmatazz – Watch What You Say (Guru’s Jazzmatazz Vol II, 1995)

Gang Starr – Moment Of Truth (Moment Of Truth, 1998)

Guru’s Jazzmatazz – Keep Your Worries (Guru’s Jazzmatazz Vol III, 2000)

RIP Keith Edward Elam (July 17, 1961 – April 19, 2010)

    Guru was a talent hard to replace….I read his death bed letter to my friends yesterday…he was a gentleman right up to the last breath.

    It was sad also to read that he did now want anything to do with premier in the future. I have tons of Gang starr vinyl from back in the day….long live his memory.
