(AllHipHop News) Solar, the business partner of Guru, has lashed out at the
accusations that he was mentally controlling and physically abusive to the late
founder of Gang Starr.
Tasha Denham, a woman that has a child with Solar, made
salacious accusations that Guru was punched in the face and beaten by his
former business partner. (Click here for the initial story)
This is from a groupie that has no knowledge of anything
about me and Guru. Its unbelievable that they even put her up there. She never
lived with Guru. She never knew Guru, he retorted in an exclusive interview
with UKs Conspiracy Radio. She was a little groupie chick that did a little
work for us here and there. [We] had a little relationship that lasted all of
10 minutes. And she was gone.
He dismissed the claims as nonsense stating that there were
no official reports or documentation that he was abusive to Guru. Shes just making up tales. And why
wouldnt Guru punch me back?
Solar fully praised the strength that Guru had when he was
alive stating that he wouldnt go for such actions against him.
Guru is one of the strongest men [I ever met] in my life.
Ive seen Guru check quite a few chins. Gurus nobodys punk, Solar said. Look at Guru theres no sugar in his
tank, so to speak.
Continuing, he said These are just cowards taking cheap
shots at a man thats not here anymore and they should be ashamed of
themselves. Guru always stood up for himself.
Solar also took time to chastise Gurus sister, who spoke
out against a letter that was released after the rappers death. Patricia Elam,
Gurus elder sibling, admitted in an interview with MTV that she was never
comfortable with Solar.
“I don’t know what the influence was,” she said.
“I don’t know if it was drugs, brainwashing, whatever. I don’t know if it
was blackmail. For whatever reason, my brother decided to trust him with his
life, and we see where that ended up. It’s an American tragedy, as far as I’m
Solar responded aggressively to the notion, saying that Guru
wasnt close to his sister as far as he knew.
The crazies are talking now. Trish (Patricia Elam, Gurus
older sister) is speaking when Trish and Guru havent spoken, havent seen each
other in I dont know how long. These are two people that did not get along.
Solar also stated that Gurus sickness caused him to become
closer to his father, who is a former judge in Boston. Solar says he became
like another son to Gurus father.
Ive been to their house, Ive been to their home to eat.
Theyve been to my home to eat. These are out and out lies aimed at me, but its
putting Guru is the wrong light. They are attacking me, but what are they
saying about Guru? This is a man that cant handle himself? Im not that kind
of person to do that. Even if I was, Guru would be obligated to not do that.
He said that Guru was a free thinker that did what he wanted
as a man.
In attacking me, you are attacking Guru, because you are
saying he couldnt think for himself, Solar said.
