RIP Guru. For a Boston guy, you won New York's heart.

Don't know if Guru actually wrote this. If he did it is a foul way to go out even if he didn't get on with Primo any more.

[3] I have serious doubts about him actually writing that, Hip Hop is second only to professional sports when it comes to the presence of sycophants and hanger's-on. Solar is the Morris Engleberg to Guru's Joe D.

those who kick dirt and do time i'm gonna get cha
cause I be kickin the real
while they be losin the race tryin to chase mass appeal

[3] [4] me too. the whole drama with this solar dude is crazy.
he should just let guru rip.
i am sure primo has his flaws but he seems cool with most people in the business so i don't know what all this is about.

The response from those "in the know" in the Twittersphere indicates that the letter is not authentic, which makes this even sadder. Some reports indicate Guru had been in a coma since February.
