Today hip-hop lost a great one, Keith “Guru” Elam. The founder of The Gang Starr and creator of the Jazzmatazz movement succumbed to Cancer at the age of 43.
Back when Gang Starr released Moment Of Truth I had the honor of interviewing Guru and Premier at D&D studios for Beat Down Magazine. He told me about the early Boston hip-hop scene, his very first time battling and how he hitch-hiked in the snow to NY after his car broke down in CT to pursue his rap dreams.
Thanks to Trent Fitzgerald (@BeatsandRants) for rescuing this clip for me:
