    Words cannot express how amazing Guru’s legacy is. A man always way beyond the norm and intelligence out of the stratosphere. I didn’t understand it in the beginning, but Guru’s work and contribution to hip-hop and jazz alike is extraordinary and a force to be reckoned with. May he Rest In Peace

    Aaliyah was the only one celebrity I cried for when she died… cause I grew up being a fan of her and Gang Starr… When I learned about Guru’s death, I couldn”t hold back the tears… I miss him and will always keep his legacy alive by talking about him with people and post tributes! Rest in peace Guru we love you!

    Back in grade 6 my parents had announced to me that they were getting a divorce, and that had hit me quite hard…I didnt have much to go on in life for but then i got a 2gb mp3 player from a relative for christmas. I damn near filled every megabyte on that player with every kind of music i could find, it was the only mental distraction i knew other than video games. For some reason, the hiphop always really resonated with me, more so as i fell in with my skateboarding friends. Gangstarr – Full clip
    I remember every single scratch on the song and guru’s amazing flow and inspiring lyrics. I find myself seeking these childhood memories of skateboarding with no regard for my home life for hours, riding around to (Gangstarr,Do you wanna mess with this? We’re one of the best yet!” stuck in my head . I just came to say, its always been a huge part of my life, and i dont think i’d have been as happy and inspired as i was throughout my teen years without something to help me through like Guru and Premiers music. Peace and love – Brett

    A Hip Hop leader gone way before his time. Yours rhymes along with Premier’s beats always hit me hard during the Golden era of our artform, when there was so much to listen to. I remember being at a friend’s house and Hard to earn was playing and everyone thought I was bugging, because I had to play Mass Appeal over & over again lol. Part of one of the greatest duos from our music’s greatest time period, GURU you did it right and represented not just Hip Hop but our music forms and community in a positive way. Gone too soon. RIP fam

    Thank you for showing me real hip hop, thank you for teaching me lessons school could never have hoped too. Thank you for always being there to support me and keep me strong and wise, because all I had to do was hit play.

    Thank you Guru for being a stand up man and really being a positive role model for us younger cats. Respect and love.

    Rest in Power.

    These cats are smart
    In order for things to change we must all play a part.

    I constantly think of your words and try pass the message onto others who wouldnt listen to hip hop so never hear them. I think of you like bob marley in the sense that your message goes beyond race, class, culture and religion and i feel blessed to have grown up with your vibe and i will do my part to help change things. Real truth always breaks boundaries, as a skinny white kid growing up in the uk i feel honoured to have been blessed with your words. Moment of truth saved my mind. One love forever
