DJ Premier Speaks On Guru Death
But does not criticise producer Solar…
Thursday, April 22, 2010 - 12:19
Guru - real name Keith Elam - died earlier this week aged 43 after a battle with cancer. A statement apparently written by the star in his final days was then released.
However some have questioned whether the words - which criticised Premier and praised recent collaborator Solar - were really written by Guru.
Now DJ Premier - who has also produced for Jay-Z, Christina Aguilera and Nas - has spoken on the subject. He said:
“"I've been asked to comment on a letter speaking ill of me which was supposedly written by Guru in his dying days. All I will say about it is that our time together was beautiful, we built a hip-hop legacy together, and no one can re-write history or take away my love for him."
“One thing I would never do is play around with the truth about his life.”
Primo also wrote: “It was a sad day for me to get confirmation on the death of a man who I will continue to call my brother, Keith Elam, better known as Guru of the legendary Gang Starr," the statement reads.
"From 1988-2004, we experienced so much success together that we were able to expand our businesses independently and give each other what Guru called 'creative space,' before planning to reunite for our seventh LP when the time was right. Tragically, we will never reach that day.
“His rhyme flows were insane, and I will never remove him from my heart and soul. Rest in peace to the man who felt 'satisfaction from the street crowd reaction.' I love you Goo ... DJ Premier."
