RIP Guru of Gang Starr – 1966-2010

Written by Daniel Clarke on April 21, 2010

Gang Starr MC Guru passed away at age 43 on Monday due to cancer related causes. The news comes barely a month after he underwent surgery following a heart attack.

Long time collaborator and partner Solar has issued a statement:

“The world has lost one of the best MCs and hip-hop icons of all-time – my loyal best friend, partner, and brother, Guru,” Solar said. “Guru has been battling cancer for well over a year and has lost his battle. This is a matter that Guru wanted private until he could beat it, but tragically, this did not happen. The cancer took him. Now the world has lost a great man and a true genius.”
