Gang Starr’s Guru undergoes open-heart surgery

March 2nd, 2010 | by Staff

Guru, one half of the pioneering rap group Gang Starr is recovering after open-heart surgery yesterday (Mar. 1) following a massive heart attack last weekend that let the MC in a coma.


Guru, born Keith Elam, and his partner DJ Premiere rose to prominence in the early 1990s as the rap duo Gang Starr with critically acclaimed albums including Step In the Arena and Hard to Earn. Guru later branched out on his own, releasing a series of Jazzmatazz albums, where he collaborated with Jazz artists, such as Donald Byrd and Ramsey Lewis, to couple his lyrics with their sound.

Doctors repaired damage done to 43-year-old’s heart and he is expected to make a full recovery.

  • LOL @ cOLD and rey..

  • Dem

    Have you heard illmatic yet?

    ^ *rules the world, gets assassinated*

  • im waitin for some southern rapper to drop Trillmatic

  • LOL.. Oh my goodness.. That’s Frightening. The worst part is that it’s gonna be some C or D list MC like Boosie or Mike Jones or some shit. I can’t believe nobody’s done that yet.

  • cOLD

    im waitin for some southern rapper to drop Trillmatic

    ^wow the irony of HHID

    yo Rey I havnt brought your hat up in a while…. Its too fucking heavy. lol

    *dies again lands in curry bowl in the corner*

  • I saw on BBC news today that some dude grew a finger ……..wow real talk he sprinkled some scientific shit on it and it grew back, asymetrical to his opposite hand’s finger

  • TrillMatic

    ^^Only Bun B could do that justice or a mixtape with Illmatic’s beats would be dope

  • I don’t think any southern rapper could handle those Illmatic beats. They’d sound retarded. They’d end up chopping and screwing It Ain’t Hard To Tell and then I’d get thrown in jail for killing someone.

  • BTW the girl with two faces means twice the lips twice the pleasure. Double Mint GUm

  • No more Ty big’s, just call me

    A clearly drunken/drugged Rey says : Ah, cOLD. You never cease to be the pebble in my shoe. I get Chappelle’s humor, and I think his SHOW was very clever. His STAND UP, on the other hand, is average and almost devoid of genuine wit. Don’t let your Chappelle’s Show boner override your good judgment. Also, That’s a No on the Illmatic. Wanna make a Big Hat joke too since you’re trolling the ‘Stopped Being Funny 8 Months Ago’ bin?


    you must be out your god damn mind Killin them softly = top 5 stand up routines ever EASY , theres no way you can watch that and say his shit is devoid genuine wit, don’t let the Chappelle show fool you into thinking Killing them softly ain’t classic

  • I’ve seen Killing Me Softly and I saw the special he did in San Francisco and I wasn’t impressed. His punchlines were predictable and not that funny. His loud shoutty voice is funny, but his actual material isn’t. Steven Wright > Dave Chappelle.
