Salute to Guru and Gang Starr

This post has been delayed for far too long. On April 19th, 2010, Keith "Guru" Elam (pictured left) passed away. He was known for his honest and hard-hitting rhymes, delivered in his signature monotone style. Along with DJ Premier (pictured right), he made up one half of one of my favorite hip-hop groups of all-time: Gang Starr. I gave it some thought and I decided that Moment of Truth is my favorite Gang Starr album. Three of my favorite tracks off the album are: Work, Betrayal ft. Scarface and Royalty ft. K-Ci & JoJo. But honestly, their entire discography is amazing and worth a listen if you're a fan of "real" hip-hop. Also, check out DJ Premier's Guru tribute mix.
R.I.P Guru.
