Rest in Peace Guru (1st Year Anniversary) + DJ Premier Tribute Mix


Rest in Peace Keith “Guru” Elam,17th July 1961 – 19th April 2010
“They say it’s lonely at the top but whatever you do,you always gotta watch Motherfuckers around you” – Guru (Moment Of Truth,Moment Of Truth LP,1998)

Today is one of the saddest days in Hip Hop (after Proof’s Death).
One Year ago,the legendary Gang Starr MC Guru passed away after suffering a Heartattack and then falling into a coma after surgery.
The Hip Hop heads who have grown up with his and Premier’s music,like me,were super shocked about his death and still can’t realise that he’s gone.
Since it’s the 1st Year Anniversary i thought i re-post the Guru Tribute Salute that DJ Premier has mixed to pay homage to his late friend and partner.
But instead of having Premier Tags all over the original production tracks i decided to take some time off and add the original untagged Joints to that mix.
I kept the talking bits just like on the original because you can hear some history about Guru;who founded Gangstarr back in the day and much more.
Panchi,Keeblr,Gordon & Milly D are in the studio with Premier to keep the show rollin’

Guests:Blaq Poet,K-Ci aka King of Chill,Vick Black (East NY),The Bartendaz (Giant aka Dr.G & Transformer),Elliot Wilson,Big Eon (of the Gang Starr Foundation),DJ Finesse,Justin Elam Ruff(Guru’s Nephew;Phone),Big Shug (Phone),Singapore Kaine(Phone),DJ JS-1 & Owen (their Lawyer)

Something Different: DJ Premier responds to Canibus’ Diss Record

Y’all probably heard about this if you read the blogs or online magazines or however you call them…Canibus got at DJ Premier on a Track called “Tell The Truth/Monster” for a statement he made about ‘bis on VladTV. He basically told DJ Vlad that Canibus was his “most complicated client” because he turned down a Beat called Devil’s Pie (that was then handed to D’Angelo) back in 1997. A Day after the Record Canibus released a Statement towards Premo too,but I’m not going to get any deeper into that.
2 days after the Diss Track and Letter,DJ Premier responds in his sort of way by starting it off with Just-Ice’ and KRS-One collabo joint called “Blah,Blah,Blah” and then after about 6 minutes he goes deeper in the situation and explained what he was saying on Vlad TV and gives his opinion on  the stuff he said to Premo on the Record.

His ending words to Canibus (before he went back to the Music):

“Canibus,calm down i still love u brother and let’s not take it past that,because i don’t want to take it to the level of doing a record that’ll outdo yours ’cause it would be the funkiest thing since Dogshit”

I wonder how long this will go because i personally think Canibus was a bit uber-sensitive about that statement. But that’s all I’m going to say about it…
Listen for yourself if you want to hear more from Premo himself (the talking bit should start around the 5:30 mark)
