Gangstarr’s Guru had a heart attack, in a coma


As reported last night,

Legendary rapper Guru, best known as a member of the rap duo Gangstarr, reportedly suffered a heart attack over the weekend and is currently in critical condition.

According to, the 43-year-old rapper (real name: Keith Elam) went into cardiac arrest sometime this weekend, and has since slipped into a coma.

Guru’s former partner, DJ Premier, was set to call into DJ Eclipse’s HipHopNation/Sirius show to speak on the rapper’s condition. But, several reports indicate that he decided to hold off.

HipHopWired, however, says the call did take place, and Premier revealed that Guru is set to undergo surgery Monday afternoon (March 1). [BallerStatus]

Our prayers are with Guru today.
