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)

DJ Premier – Live From Headqcourterz (7th January 2011)

It’s been a minute since i last posted Premier’s Radio show mostly for the reason i didn’t have much time checking them out or was more focused on my music.
Premier starts the year off like he finished it: Playing music,cutting it up on the one’s and two’s,talks shit with Panchi and the others. He also breaks down his Top 25 Albums of 2010.
Expect nothing but dope shit on this one,it’s the first show of 2011!
Shouts to Prem,Nick Javas,Panchi and the rest of the crew.
Rest in Peace to Headqcourterz & Guru!
WORD IS BOND!!!!!
