On this day April 19th, the 2nd anniversary of Guru’s passing, we make available a t-shirt from the mural created last year at his alma mater Morehouse. The mural was created in honor of Guru’s 1st year anniversary of his passing. On April 20th, 2011 the Morehouse Office of Housing and Residential Life, Residence Hall Association, and Society Mag presented the 2nd Annual Renaissance Arts Festival. During the Arts Festival there was a live painting tribute to an esteemed Morehouse alum and hip hop legend Keith “Guru” Elam ’83 who passed away on April 19th, 2010. The painting was done by Jordan Jackson founder (Morehouse student at the time of the painting) and owner of Original State of Mind, LLC originalstateofmindllc.com. The X Label and Jordan Jackson bring to you a limited edition t-shirt of the mural. The shirt features the mural on the front and the word Knowledge. The back of the shirt displays a quote by Guru, “Knowledge is wisdom, understanding truth’s the proof.” The shirt comes in both black & white colors. Get yours now….
