DJ Premier, Marsalis Remembers Guru

DJ Premier

DJ Premier released a statement today (April 21) remembering his late friend and Gang Starr co-hort Keith "Guru" Elam. The rapper died Monday (April 19) after a long bout with cancer. Statements from Premo and Guru's Family totally debunks Solar's earlier press releases, which was supposedly written by Guru on his deathbed. (Sidenote: Bullshit!)
