On Saturday (July 17), 7 Grand Records was celebrating the life, music and legacy of Guru aka Mr. GangStarr -- it would have been the legendary emcee's 49th birthday.
"On behalf of 7 Grand Records, we honor Guru on his birthday and wish to thank the fans and supporters from around the world for the tremendous love they have shown over the years and of course in these trying times. Guru is one of the best who ever touched the mic and he is missed deeply!" reads the official 7 Grand Records statement.
As a special gift to all Guru fans around the world, 7 Grand Records releases a visual remix video to an outstanding and very rare Guru collaboration with the legendary Bob Marley.
"The concept of the video first was to bring a visual representation of the 'Johnny Was' remix to the fans. We wanted the video to have a vintage feel but touch on modern times. The universal struggle of people is something that has been at the heart of Guru's music and of course of Bob Marley's music."
With all his contributions to music, Hip-Hop is not forgetting Guru anytime soon. Long live his legacy and R.I.P. Guru.
