It’s hard to believe that it has been five years since we have lost G.ifted U.nlimited R.hymes Universal., otherwise known as GURU and one half of Gang Starr. But his musical legacy will forever live on. With that, the good folks at Cookin Soul put together this brilliant mix that pays homage to GURU.

Keith Elam aka Guru (Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal) was a big influence for us, his Jazzmatazz series showed the world the fusion of Jazz & Hip-Hop paving the way to other styles like neosoul… Not to mention Gangstarr, still one of our favourite groups of all time… tomorrow April 19th will mark the 5th anniversary of his death…

This is how we pay tribute to his legacy…
One for the GURU

Gang Starr: The True Heads Merch Mix

This is for the true Gang Starr heads that not only love the classic singles, but love the rarely played album cuts, B-Sides, rare collabos and not your regularly mixed records.

We wanted something to go along with the launch of our Official Gang Starr Shop and we will continue to keep the legacy going. Shouts to GURU and Lil Guru(KC), Lana, Justin, the whole Elam family and the Gang Starr Foundation for staying strong throughout the whole loss of our soldier, father, lyricist and MC”. Love can never be shattered and that’s what we bring everyday all day.
