Breaking News: DJ Premier Issues Formal Statement On Guru

DJ Premier has issued his official statement on the death of former rap partner Guru. Both men released six influential albums as Gangstarr. The letter is seen in its entirety below.IT WAS A SAD DAY FOR ME TO GET CONFIRMATION ON THE DEATH OF A

MAN WHO I WILL CONTINUE TO CALL MY BROTHER, KEITH ELAM, BETTER KNOWN

AS GURU OF THE LEGENDARY GANG STARR.

FROM 1988-2004, WE EXPERIENCED SO MUCH SUCCESS TOGETHER THAT

WE WERE ABLE TO EXPAND OUR BUSINESSES INDEPENDENTLY AND GIVE EACH

OTHER WHAT GURU CALLED “CREATIVE SPACE”, BEFORE PLANNING TO REUNITE FOR

OUR 7TH LP WHEN THE TIME WAS RIGHT.  TRAGICALLY, WE WILL NEVER REACH

THAT DAY.

I’VE BEEN ASKED TO COMMENT ON A LETTER SPEAKING ILL OF ME

WHICH WAS SUPPOSEDLY WRITTEN BY GURU IN HIS DYING DAYS.  ALL I WILL SAY

ABOUT IT IS THAT OUR TIME TOGETHER WAS BEAUTIFUL, WE BUILT A HIP HOP

LEGACY TOGETHER, AND NO ONE CAN RE-WRITE HISTORY OR TAKE AWAY MY LOVE

FOR HIM.  ONE THING I WOULD NEVER DO IS PLAY AROUND WITH THE TRUTH

ABOUT HIS LIFE.

I  WILL CELEBRATE GURU’S LIFE… I WILL HONOR HIS MEMORY…

I WILL GRIEVE WITH THE ELAM FAMILY OVER HIS UNTIMELY DEATH… I WILL

REMEMBER THE GANG STARR FOUNDATION AND ALL OF THE ORIGINAL MEMBERS OF

GANG STARR WHO CAME BEFORE ME – WE ALL KNOW EACH OTHER… MOSTLY, I WILL

CHERISH EVERYTHING WE CREATED TOGETHER AS GANG STARR, FOREVER.  I’M

GONNA MISS HEARING HIS SIGNATURE MONOTONE VOICE WHEN HE WALKS IN THE

ROOM, BUT THE SONGS WILL ALWAYS BRING IT BACK TO ME….HIS RHYME FLOWS

WERE INSANE, AND I WILL NEVER REMOVE HIM FROM MY HEART AND SOUL…….REST

IN PEACE TO THE MAN WHO FELT “SATISFACTION FROM THE STREET CROWD

REACTION” … I LOVE YOU GOO…….DJ PREMIER
