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 – Sing Like Bilal [Instrumental]

If you’re a true Hip Hop head (like me) you probably are keen on DJ Premier’s Beat Catalogue and the joints he did with Nas,Fat Joe and other honorable names.

About 2 Years ago he decided to release an Beat Tape called “Beats that Collected Dust” with instrumentals that he was doing for other artists but then got turned down by the MC’s who were supposed to get the beat.

Here’s one of the Beats that started to become popular this year when Joell Ortiz decided to rap over it on Funk Flex’ Radio Show (What Up Flex!) It samples Gang Starr’s Song “We Got Gunz” with a vocal sample by M.O.P’s Lil Fame.
