Gang Starr’s Guru in Coma Following Heart Attack
3/1/2010 By Brock Thiessen


Guru, the leading force behind pioneering hip-hop outfit Gang Starr and the Jazzmatazz project, is reportedly in a coma after suffering a heart attack Sunday (February 28). The 43-year-old rapper is to undergo surgery today (March 1).

Guru’s Gang Starr partner DJ Premier confirmed the MC’s condition in a call to satellite radio program Hip Hop Nation, the Guardian reports.

Since the 2003 album The Ownerz, Gang Starr have kept a relatively low profile, going on an indefinite hiatus and only recently hinting of new material from the duo.

Guru, born Keith Elam, released his last solo album Lost and Found in 2009, which followed up on 2007’s The Hip-Hop Jazz Messenger: Back to the Future from his jazz/hip-hop project Jazzmatazz.

damn i liked these guys, hope things work out for him

Seriously, best to Guru. One of the smoothest and most distinctive flows in the history of hip hop.

Guru has apparently emerged from the coma and has his wits, but as the only other hip hop fan on A2K, dj, you probably already know that.

Now if we can only get Gang Starr back together.

hopefully when he's back to full strength the guys can put their differences aside and get back to what they do best
