Solar Says Relationship With Guru’s Family ‘Got Weird’
He admits a divide…
Monday, April 26, 2010 - 12:37
Producer Solar has said his relationship with the family of his creative partner Guru “got weird” near the end of the rappers’ life.
Allegations have been made against Solar about his control over the former Gang Starr member during his lifetime and since his death.
Guru’s nephew released a video criticising his uncle’s producer and claiming that the family were barred from visiting him in hospital.
Now Solar has told MTV News US: “The funny thing is, it hasn't been all this tension. It got weird in the end. Up until the end, it didn't exist, quite honestly.
“I talked to his father every Father's Day; he came to this concert tribute in Boston. I visited his mother and father; they visited us. The tension really became evident in February. It became the public thing it is when Justin put the video out.
“It's just an untrue video, and it opened the door for a lot of other things. Up until that point, there was no tension between myself and the family at all. I didn't know [Justin's mother and Guru's sister] Trish at all.”
He added: “I have nothing but the utmost respect for his family, It's unfortunate that the rift happened and Justin got caught into this divide in between.”
