» RIP Guru

GuruWas there ever a time when Guru wasn’t cool? That smooth, buttery flow was just untouchable. Whenever he laid his hands on the mic – Gang Starr, Jazzmatazz, countless collaborations – tracks were infused with an effortless charisma.

Guru and DJ Premier’s work together made individual stars of them both and, although they parted ways in latter years, they remained close. Indeed, Premier was one of the first to break the tragic news of Guru’s untimely death on his blog.

For me personally, no Guru joint gripped me more immediately than “Rep Grows Bigga”, a perfect example of Guru and Premier combining to awesome effect. Join us in paying tribute to the man by bumping this slice of hip-hop perfection on full blast. Rest In Peace, Guru.

(Words by MF Hart)

We also had the pleasure of interviewing Guru last year.
