Remembering Guru (including at LPR tonight)
Gang Starr: Guru (left), DJ Premier (in the background)
One year ago, on April 19th, 2010 to be exact, the world waved goodbye to Guru, one half of Gang Starr and the brain behind the Jazzmatazz series. DJ Premier paid tribute to Keith Elam on Hot 97 (stream all two hours of it below) and Guru will be further eulogized at Le Poisson Rouge TONIGHT (4/21). Revive Da Live Big Band will pay tribute to the Gang Starr MC at the venue, and will have some help from ex-Gang Starr Foundation member Jeru the Damaja, as well as Masta Ace, Lord Finesse, DJ Logic and others. Tickets are still available.
