Wish You Were Here In The Physical Form…As You Already Know We Got Things Covered Down Here and KC Is Good, Lana Is Good Trish, Jay and Joci are Good. As I Will Continue To Say, You’re 1 Of 1.

Guru died from cancer on April 19, 2010, less than a month after he went into cardiac arrest and fell into a coma.

Among the many jewels he left behind was the four-part Jazzmatazz series, which seamlessly fused Hip Hop and jazz together. Universal Music Group recently reissued Jazzmatazz: Vol. 1 in honor of the album’s 25th anniversary.

As Gang Starr, Guru and Preemo pumped out six official studio albums, including 1994’s Hard To Earn and the 1998 classic, Moment Of Truth.

Several of Guru’s peers also paid tribute on social media. Digable Planets’ Ladybug Mecca, Evidence, A-F-R-O, DJ EFN, Planet Asia, AG and Kid Capri were among those to remember the late Hip Hop luminary.

Check out some of their posts below.
