Cross Your Fingers For Guru

1 Mar

Unfortunately, this isn’t a joke: Guru from the legendary Gang Starr lapsed into a coma after suffering cardiac arrest, and is facing surgery right now. When I was 16, the only time I ever cut off of work early was the day Full Clip came out, and Premier and Guru were signing copies at the record store. While he’s not the most electrifying MC to ever rap over a DJ Premier beat, there’s a reason their chemistry was tight enough to last for six largely unfuckwithable albums (and a vault of non-album material that put anybody to shame). Pray to God, or Buddha, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster, but whatever you do, save your snark and wish him a speedy and successful recovery.
