Rapper Guru, who is the founding member of legendary rap group Gangstarr, is reportedly in a critical condition. Word is that he slipped into a comatose state after suffering a sudden and massive heart attack.
Guru’s sister Trecia contacted the press yesterday and confirmed that the hip hop legend is in BAD SHAPE. According to her, Guru (gov’t name Keith Elam), is in a New York hospital and will undergo surgery today.
Guru was considered on of the most gifted lyricists in early hip hop. He’s also credited with fusing hip hop and jazz in a style he called Jazzamatazz.
