Rapper Guru is dead at age 43 after a long battle with cancer. The New York-based hip-hop legend, born Keith Elam, had a heart attack March 2 and subsequently fell into a coma. After seemingly recovering from that hit, Guru lost his battle with a cancer-related disease on April 19.
“After finding out this awful news I started looking through tons of pictures from the time I had worked at Zoo York in 03′ ish. I remember we did some Deck with Gang Starr. But I remembered to a tee meeting Guru and DJ Premier for the first time at Zoo. It was Jefferson Pang, Crazee Dave, Rodney Smith, myself and Gang Starr!!! Guru had a presence like no other hip hop entertainer. He was special to his fans and a straight up dood that will be missed and loved by all.”
