Default RIP Guru

It's been announced that rapper Guru, one-half of Gang Starr, passed away on Monday, succumbing to cancer at age 43.

Big loss.

There's already drama popping up around letters, benefactors, etc- but I'ma leave that be for now......

RIP Guru.
Life is just blah, blah, blah
You hope for blah
And sometimes you find it, but mostly it's blah
And waiting for blah
And hoping you were right about the blahs you made
And then, just when you think you've got the whole blah'd damn thing figured out
And you're surrounded by the ones you blah
Death shows up... anddd blah, blah, blah.

That sucks. RIP.

"If we're all merely players in a play on this great stage,
the problem is the script writers ain't on the same page,
I echo through the mountain when I'm singing in the air,
from my lab a lad with lavish lyrics living in his lair."

"Wake up and listen, hear what's not for the public's ears
Pinocchio poets played by profiting puppeteers"

Sad news

Guru was an old school rap master; we should thank him and Premier in Gang Starr for defining good early-90s hip-hop.

I'll remember Guru as a pure Chump Executioner..

Like an arrow,
I was only passing through.

**** man that is crappy news. I've been listening to Moment of Truth and Hard to Earn religiously for the past ten years, it was crazy how a laid back voiced rapper can get me amped. Hard to Earn, best album ever.
Chill Out
