    I want to thank you GURU and those who share your legacy. I can’t forget the inspiration that you and DJ Premier provided for me and my peers growing up in The Sigma Beta Club….an affiliated organization with Phi Beta Sigma (an organization that I am a part of) designed to shape the minds of young black males.

    GURU your posture and presence was just as profound as your honest lyrics that seemed to cross class lines…on the black experience, the human experience and the importance of culture, identity, family and consciousness.

    Yesterday, I downloaded some of my favorite Gang Starr albums and was reminded just how much you and Premiere influenced me. Your references leaded me to the most conscious artists and inspired me to keep writing my story from Tracy Chapman, to Miles Davis….most importantly, as I go through my own life, with similar, and a lot of time…unique situations, somehow, even though I am from another place in the country- even though I’ve made some choices that you would not have made, I know that you would have wanted me to tell this story as best and as clear as possible, This is the way you did it. You have said many important things. You’ve touched many souls all across the globe. Thank you. You will forever live in the deepest part of my heart as one of the most influential artists of my life.

    I used to come home and go down to the basement where my room was in high school…and write to ambient music. There were a lot of artists that I listened to during that era, but some how going back to your recordings inspires me to go back to the essence….yet again, following in your footsteps.

    With love,

    Rest in peace, Guru. You changed the world of hip-hop for me. I remember chilling with my best mate listening to GangStarr at the back of the class in school. Your one of the reasons I fell in love with hip-hop. Happy hunting in heaven, my man. Keep spittin’ those bars with Jesus. R.I.P
