Rest In Peace – Keith ‘Guru’ Elam

With today marking the fifth anniversary of the tragic passing of the legendary Keith ‘Guru’ Elam, it’s only right that everyone who claims to love Hip-Hop takes a moment to reflect on the Boston-bred emcee’s timeless contributions to the culture.

Beyond the various interviews I did with him over the years, Guru was an individual I was privileged to be able to call a friend.

In my experience, which included numerous conversations both on and off the record, Guru always remained passionate about his craft, serious about his responsibility as an artist, and genuinely grateful to all who supported him.

Hip-Hop lost a true great on April 19th 2010.

RIP Guru – you’ll never be forgotten.
