NSR: R.I.P. Guru
One of the greatest MC's of all time, Guru, passed away last night following a lengthy bout with cancer. He was one of the few MC's to really touch me back in the day and his passing is a loss for hip hop heads worldwide. And as I just found out on Thursday that my old man has been diagnosed with colon cancer this is almost a little too poignant for me right now.
But this ain't about me, it's about the man who was one of those rare MC's who could deliver the illest lines in a manner that was so smooth that you (or it's intended victim) probably wouldn't be offended. He was jazzhead. He was a pioneer. He was the G.O.A.T. He was Guru.
