1. AUDIO: DJ Premier’s Favorite 50 Songs That Featured GURU (RIP).

    Yesterday, July 17th, 2011, marked what would have been Keith “Guru” Elam’s 50th birthday. To commemorate the occasion, DJ Premier paid homage to his long-time friend and partner in Gang Starr by posting a list of his 50 favorite songs – GS and otherwise – which featured Guru’s trademark monotone delivery and enlightened street science. Writes Premier of his list: “THIS IS NOT IN ANY PARTICULAR ORDER… I AM JUST LISTING THE JOINTS AS THEY COME TO ME IN MY HEAD AND PLEASE DO NOT START TELLING ME WHAT I MISSED! THESE ARE MY FAVORITES… FEEL FREE TO DO YOUR OWN…”

    We did not do our own. Seeing how Preem’s picks include as many obscure guest appearances and overlooked album cuts as beloved Gang Starr classics, we did something we think all Guru fans would appreciate. We reprinted the entire list and included AUDIO FOR ALL 50 SONGS . Read, listen, and celebrate the gifts of Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal – now and forever the voice that gets you buck. Guru, RIP.
