Get Well Soon Guru


For those of you who haven’t heard, Guru, from the pioneering hip-hop duo Gang Starr, has fallen into a coma after suffering a heart attack yesterday. DJ Premier confirmed yesterday that Guru will undergo surgery today. Our thoughts at OTU go out to Guru and his friends and family. Get well soon homie.

EDIT: DJ Premier confirmed over Twitter earlier today that Guru’s surgery was successful and wished us to keep sending him our love.

To celebrate Guru’s work here’s the title track from Gang Starr’s Moment of Truth (1998): One of his most intelligent pieces of work to date.

  • Moment of Truth is probably my best Gang Starr track of all time, and indeed one of my best hip hop cuts; I bought that album only for that joint – and realised I inadvertently bought an album full of classics! Its not about the lyrical wordplay as such, more about the complete rawness of the rhymes, and the meaning and understanding it offers for bitter experiences you face. Plus a historic production.

    Get well soon Guru.

  • Chris

    Shit! I didn’t know this! I hope he gets well soon.

    Broken Soul Boy – I did pretty much the exact same thing.

  • Appreciate the feedback guys.

    ‘Timeless’ is perhaps most fitting
