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 featuring Various Artists – BET Awards Cypher 2010 + Guru Tribute

Damn this shows you how fast the time passes by.1 Year after the really dope BET Cypher it returns with another pretty dope year of artists trading Bars over a Beat that Premo laced for this event and lets be honest the Cyphers are the only good thing about these “awards”.

The whole thing was split in 5 Groups,broadcasted inbetween the ads,but i thought it would be better for y’all to get that joint in one piece (almost 17 1/2 Minutes).

Here are this years Cypher Guests in order of their appearance: Wiz Khalifa (spittin a one year old verse.smh),Bones Brigante,Yelawolf,Raekwon,Tyga,Kuniva (of D12),Diamond,Royce Da 5’9″,Ice Cube & Sons (OMG & Doughboy),Reverend Run & Sons (Diggy & JoJo),Reek Da Villian,Zawcain,Mickey Factz,Kanye West,Pusha T,Big Sean,Cyhi Tha Prynce & Common

I also thought it would be nice to post the Guru Tribute aswell,although (in my opinion) I think 2 Minutes of talking on stage ain’t enough for such a great Hip Hop Artist,they should’ve given Premo more time.BET also made a 10 minute Tribute payin homage to late and great Keith “Guru” Elam. R.I.P! Gangstarr for Live!

You can check the BET:Guru Tribute @ the DJ Premier Blog

Have a blessed day!

Shouts to Premo!
