Within hours of Guru’s death, the internet was ablaze with speculation over the suspect letter that was released to fans by friend and producer Solar. Pop the hood for details. Continue
S e e k i n g A f f l u e n t c O m is a place for like-minded people who understand that intelligence, success and drive are key elements to attraction.
that letter was false I dont think any man would hold so much hatred towards another person
RIP Guru & IDK but something’s a little off about this letter & for some odd reason I believe that the relationship/friendship between Guru & Solar was alot deeper than it seemed.
why on your death bed would you be spouting such hate for a man that was your friend…this letter seems as suspect as solar looks…
Anyways,I hope that Guru’s son gets taken care of the way Guru wanted.
This is some real ignorant stuff. I don’t believe Guru wrote that letter, and even if he did, why in the hell would someone put it out there on the internet like this the moment he died. Some people are real effed-up.
There is something rotten in Denmark! So this man Solar is the only family Guru had left outside of his son?!?!
Could someone post the letter…my internet won’t show the letter
I thought documents of that importance have to be witnessed or notarized by another party.
Here is the rest “MOCK STAR”
“I do not wish my ex-DJ to have anything to do with my name likeness, events, tributes etc. connected in anyway to my situation including any use of my name or circumstance for any reason and I have instructed my lawyers to enforce this. I had nothing to do with him in life for over 7 years and want nothing to do with him in death.
Solar has my life story and is well informed on my family situation, as well as the real reason for separating from my ex-DJ. As the sole founder of GangStarr, I am very proud of what GangStarr has meant to the music world and fans. I equally am proud of my Jazzmatazz series and as the father of Hip-Hop/Jazz.”
Yes, this sounds a little off to me. One his death bed ALL he could think about was hating on his ex-DJ? I don’t think so.
All of this stuff should have been handled with a lawyer. There is no reason why this is on the internet the day he dies.
The rest of the “letter”:
“I do not wish my ex-DJ to have anything to do with my name likeness, events tributes etc. connected in anyway to my situation including any use of my name or circumstance for any reason and I have instructed my lawyers to enforce this. I had nothing to do with him in life for over 7 years and want nothing to do with him in death. Solar has my life story and is well informed on my family situation, as well as the real reason for separating from my ex-DJ. As the sole founder of GangStarr, I am very proud of what GangStarr has meant to the music world and fans. I equally am proud of my Jazzmatazz series and as the father of Hip-Hop/Jazz. I am most proud of my leadership and pioneering efforts on Jazzmatazz 4 for reinvigorating the Hip-Hop/Jazz genre in a time when music quality has reached an all time low. Solar and I have toured in places that I have never been before with GangStarr or Jazzmatatazz and we gained a reputation for being the best on the planet at Hip-Hop/Jazz, as well as the biggest and most influential Hip-Hop/Jazz record with Jazzmatazz 4 of the decade to now. The work I have done with Solar represents a legacy far beyond its time. And we as a team were not afraid to push the envelope. To me this is what true artists do! As men of honor we stood tall in the face of small mindedness, greed, and ignorance. As we fought for music and integrity at the cost of not earning millions and for this I will always be happy and proud, and would like to thank the million fans who have seen us perform over the years from all over the world. The work I have done with Solar represents a legacy far beyond its time and is my most creative and experimental to date. I hope that our music will receive the attention it deserves as it is some of the best work I have done and represents some of the best years of my life.”
the docs said guru was unable to speak IN COMA so how in the hell did he have the energy to say all that mess .. get outta here! solar is as transparent as anything – count how many times he used the word solar .. unless they were secret lovers, aint nothing in the world to make him write all that crap exclusively for solar .. guru’s family and attorney’s need to get on this stat – lie detector tests, voice analysis, the works .. if he fails just one, throw him in jail ….
this is so fake…..i respect guru but he didnt make gangstarr by himself….
Guru’s family & DJ premier need to expose solar’s azz
FUk solar i guess this is his time to shine…
I’m not buying this and I’m sorry but Guru and Solar sound more like a gay couple than best friends! Good grief Solar were you that in love with this man???
This letter sounds bogus and I hope Guru had sense enough to have a will and I hope his lawyers bring forth the REAL WILL and put this letter where it belongs – in the trash!
if I believe the letter than I would have to believe something else about guru and since Im not in the business of speculating after death I will not further comment
Okay.i’ll put it out there. Could it be that he had AIDS? Could it be that these two,were indeed a couple and mabe the falling out between him and Premier was over that? Not saying its true,just asking the question. It wouldn’t change my opinion of him or make me love his music any less,but like i said,i’m just asking.
@Angel(formerly UrHeiness),tg and sh** happens
Thanks for posting the letter. I don’t know how to call this one. Groups seem to break up all the time and there always seem to be animosity between the members…
This letter seems bogus.
I do believe that he & Primo had beef. We saw him perform last year and it was obvious that there would NOT be a Gangstarr reunion. BUT — it was also obvious that Solar was being positioned as a prominent figure in Guru’s life/camp/legacy.
IMO, this letter sets the stage for Solar’s post-Guru career as well as the management of Guru’s legacy, likeness, etc.
I hope I’m wrong. Regardless, R.I.P Guru!
You will be missed.
%100 bogus letter…can we all guess who wrote this, while GURU was in a coma. Solar=sicko
If Solar was smart, there should have been a “WITNESS”, otherwise it’s just his word and a dead man can tell no tales.
Doesn’t Guru have any blood family . . . this doesn’t even sound right.
Solar, YOU LIE!!! Without a witness, I don’t see how this can stand up in a court of law.
And what’s worse than the contents, is the timing . . .
Ahem . . .from the family . . .
“As a result, Guru was in a coma from mid-February until his death and never regained consciousness,” the statement continues. “Early on the morning of April 19, he became hypertensive due to low blood pressure. He again went into cardiac arrest and slipped away from us.”
so when did Guru dictate this letter??
