R.I.P Guru of Gang Starr

Posted by Ms.Tris On April - 20 - 2010

Legendary MC Guru passed away yesterday from cancer. Such a sad thing to hear. I remember many Friday nights fellow hip hop heads and I would spend analyzing his lyrics and trying to imitate Premeire’s beats. Check out some of the Gang Starr classics that helped shape the sound of hip hop during that time:
