(AllHipHop News) Hip-hop lost a gem when Guru of Gang Starr passed away in 2010, due to complications with cancer.

Among those who mourned was Guru's former business partner, rapper/producer Solar, who vanished for two years with some much needed time away from the scene.

Solar continues to carry the legacy of the Boston/Brooklyn MC in a major way, penning his own book titled "The Moment of Truth: Guru/Gang Starr Life & Death Story."

"Consider the rumors... the alleged villain... suspicions of murder and forgery... all around the life of one of Hip Hop's most renowned rappers," promotional material for the book reads. "This story sizzles from top to bottom and here's a chance to bring closure and clarity to one of the music industries most controversial partnerships."

While Solar had been working with Guru for over 11 years, he was accused of releasing phony press statements on behalf of Guru following his death.

Allegedly, Guru was in a coma when the questions were asked.

“It took me a long time to pick up the pieces – make decisions. Losing Guru was a lot to deal with but now I know I can move on," Solar told in 2012, shortly after the controversy.

According to Solar, the new book will clear up the chaos and controversy that ensued following Guru’s death once and for all.
