Update: Guru Releases Statement on Condition

Just two days after news broke that Guru suffered a heart attack and one successful surgery later, the legendary MC and member of the 90’s group Gang Starr released an official statement via super producer and longtime friend, Solar.

“I am doing fine and I am recovering,” he said. “I’m weak though. Solar is the only person who has the accurate info on my situation. Any info from anybody else is false! I appreciate your well wishes and all the love!”

According to Solar, who thanks fans for their support and prayers, Guru’s doctors say that he should recover fully from the illness.

Guru has been putting out hip-hop records for over two decades. His work with Gang Starr is highly regarded as one of the most influential MC-and DJ tandems of the 1990’s. Guru is also credited for being one of the first rappers to merge hip-hop and jazz with his Jazzmatazz series. Since going solo he has released several discs, including last May’s Guru 8.0: Lost and Found on the indenent label 7 Grand.

Stay tuned to as the story develops. —Brooklyne Gipson
