Guru's Mass Appeal

If u haven't heard by now... Guru from the Hip Hop group Gang Starr... suffered a heart attack this past weekend and is currently in a coma... We wish him and his family the best and we wish him a quick and speedy recovery, and also because... really... Hip Hop wouldn't f*ckin be what it is today without Gang Starr... no bullsh*t...

Before Bentley's..... before Bling... before Cristal... people loved Hip Hop for what it was... Beautiful Music... and it was held to a far greater standard than it is today... and don't get it twisted... I'm not one of those people who hate all Hip Hop made after after 1998, cause thats not the case... I've been known to like my fair share of Pop Hop tracks.....
( if u see someone who uses that u know who said it first) ..

Seriously... I don't have a problem with commercial Hip Hop at all... but when thats the majority of what u see, I realize how fortunate it was to have groups like Gang Starr.. who pushed the sounds of Hip Hop to heights not seen in quite some time...

and with that... this is just ONE of my favorite Gang Starr tracks... !!!!
still sounds new...
Get well soon Guru!!!
Much respect to DJ Premier
