From Yo! PR:


There are a lot of rumors and wrong information circulating around about Guru's current situation and health status. Hit producer and Guru's longtime producer and best friend, Solar addresses these false rumors in an official statement and during an interview with CNN.

"Guru is recovering and his doctors are guarded, but hopeful for his recovery," Solar told the news network.

Solar said the rapper has a history of lung problems and asthma and has been guarded about revealing his health issues. "Guru has entrusted me to be accurate and truthful in relaying information to the media," Solar said.

The legendary MC always tried to keep his private life behind closed doors and Solar said he was confused as to why Guru's nephew, Justin Nicholas-Elam Ruff, accused Solar of withholding information about the rapper from his family and not allowing them to see him, given that Ruff's mother, Trish, and other family members have visited with Guru.

"It's very, very baffling to me because his mother [Trish] was at the hospital not even a week ago with Guru's brother and his sister," Solar told CNN. "I speak to Guru's father and his brother daily. This is amazingly untrue and I have no idea what this is about."

"I have nothing but the deepest love and respect for the Elam family but I have not stopped them from seeing Guru!" Solar added.

Doctors have not given any indication as to when Guru might be released, Solar said, and the rapper is touched by the fan support.

"The outpouring of love from around the world has been tremendous," Solar said. "I'm reading some of the best e-mails, texts and Twitters that come in and he enjoys them. I think that's what has been helping his recovery and what's got him in there fighting."

During what must be an incredibly hard and stressful period in life, keep sending your prayers, thoughts, and wishes to Guru, Solar and his loved ones.

Guru, the sole founder of the world famous Hip-Hop group GangStarr and the legendary  Jazzmatazz series, has suffered a heart attack and Hip-Hop fans around the world have shown massive love and support to one of the greatest rappers of all time.
