DJ Premier breaks silence over Gang Starr partner Guru

Tuesday 27 April 2010

Following his death last week, a statement was released purporting to be Guru’s last words on his personal and professional life. The letter immediately aroused suspicion after repeated references were made to the role Guru’s Jazzmatazz partner Solar ought to play in his legacy, as well as a paragraph that appeared to sever all ties with Guru’s “ex-DJ”. Now the ex in question, DJ Premier, appears to have broken his silence over Guru’s final days, questioning the care the rapper was receiving while in a coma. It makes for sad reading, but at least it suggests that DJ Premier made peace with his former Gang Starr partner before the rapper died. More than anything, it casts further doubt over Solar’s role in Guru’s life and how reliable the rapper’s final statement can possibly be.

“When I saw Guru it really fucked me up. I wore a Gang Starr shirt first of all; just for the energy and so he knew that’s forever with us. And that includes everyone that came before me; I know every one of them …

If you love him, and you’re taking care of him, why the fuck did his nails look longer than a fucking ruler? [And] a clump Afro? I’ve taken care of people in the hospital [before]. You can wash their hair and clean their nails off. His feet were swollen and his toenails were really disgusting … I took the logo on my shirt and rubbed it against his whole body and told him a message from me about how much I loved him, and that we were for life and still were for life. Then I kissed him on his face and let him know that I was going to miss him because it seemed like he was already gone.”
