Throwback Tuesdays:: GURU Dies at 43! R.I.P GANGSTARR

April 20, 2010

Gangstarr by Sergio Canay.

Hey swaggtalkers. We at another week, and tuesdays we always have something special. I had another idea for “THROWBACK TUESDAYS”..but news just hit that rapper/icon, the legendary GURU aka GANGSTARR has passed away today from a long 1 year battle with cancer. GURU had so many hits such as “just to get a rep”, and “mass appeal” and a few others. He just recently suffered a heart attack, which news had it that he was having a speedy recovery.

Well a letter was found and revealed letting everyone know that he had cancer for a year and had a long hard battle with it. (click here to read the letter)

RIP GANGSTARR…..we’ll miss ya homie! East New York stand up!!! here’s a vid as well……….


throwback question of the day:: name the song, a real big hit with him and fellow NYC rappers smooth b, and greg nice that still jumps in the club today?

    Hi Donna, thanks for stopping by..its really appreciated. but i dont think there’s too much more to this. there’s just stuff that guru didnt want in the streets and its nothing big, but he’s a celeb, so its gonna be 1000 stories about this!

    His death seems so mysterious- hopes there’s not more to this story to be told.

    Thanks for stopping by Corey & Dlewis and offering us your realistic words and voicing your opinion, nobody is promised tomorrow we have to live life to the fullest when we can because that chance may never come.

    straight up @ Novi cancer is no joke, on the real

    its mainly because of what people put in their bodies when thir younger ….food, chems, drugs that why we need to be caution and tone it down a knotch.

    That man should not be dead at 43 yrs old! Not when people are living twice his age + I stopped eating pork a few yrs ago, I dont drink soda and i`m about to cut out red meat from my diet.
