    Word Thaproductz. To me, Guru will always be one of my top MCs in the hip hop world. His lyrics from the track “Moment of Truth” really moves me everytime i listen to it. He will definitely be missed. Rest In Perfect Peace GURU. GANG STARR FOR LIFE!!!!!!

    No Hip-Hop death hit me like his. One thing about Gangstarr — and a huge part of that is from Guru, is when I listened to records like Step in the Arena growing up I felt I could relate to it. It wasn’t obnoxiously ‘hardcore,’ but it wasn’t soft either. It had intelligence, but it wasn’t nerdy. It was the perfect middle ground for what a Hip-Hop record should be. Step in the Arena set the bar for what other Hip-Hop records had to live up to in every respect. It’s still my gauge.

    Education, i didnt get it in school. I got it from people like Jello Biafra, Chuck D and Guru.

    RIP Guru, never forgotten!
