R.I.P GURU July 1966 – April 2010

The Hip Hop Community mourns as one of their legendary rappers has passed. Rapper Guru ended his fight against cancer, just a month after suffering from a heart attack. Guru’s Partner and long time collaborator Solar, who Guru has left all legal decisions up to regarding his estate left this statement:

“The world has lost one of the best MCs and hip-hop icons of all-time — my loyal best friend, partner, and brother, Guru,” Solar said. “Guru has been battling cancer for well over a year and has lost his battle! This is a matter that Guru wanted private until he could beat it, but tragically, this did not happen. The cancer took him. Now the world has lost a great man and a true genius.”

Before his death, while battling with Cancer Guru wrote a letter to his fans that he wanted released after he dies, it reads:

“I have a non-profit organization called Each One Counts dedicated to carrying on my charitable work on behalf of abused and disadvantaged children from around the world and also to educate and research a cure for this terrible disease that took my life. I write this with tears in my eyes, not of sorrow but of joy for what a wonderful life I have enjoyed and how many great people I have had the pleasure of meeting.

“My loyal best friend, partner and brother, Solar, has been at my side through it all and has been made my health proxy by myself on all matters relating to myself. He has been with me by my side on my many hospital stays, operations, doctors visits and stayed with me at my home and cared for me when I could not care for myself. Solar and his family is my family and I love them dearly and I expect my family, friends, and fans to respect that, regardless to anybody’s feelings on the matter. It is my wish that counts. This being said I am survived by the love of my life, my sun KC, who I trust will be looked after by Solar and his family as their own. Any awards or tributes should be accepted, organized approved by Solar on behalf [of] myself and my son until he is of age to except on his own.”

but with all things related to hip hop, there is always some drama. Guru and his Ex-Dj Premier had a falling out sometime ago and never really addressed or fixed the issue, after working with each other for over 10 years. I don’t think anybody really knows what happened, all we know is that it was something that was bad enough that left these two friends very distant from eachtoher… I don’t know… this guy (blogger) has and interesting view on what happened CLICK HERE if you want to get into some of the drama.

In Guru’s letter to his fans, he had this to say about Premier:

“I do not wish my ex-DJ to have anything to do with my name likeness, events, tributes etc. connected in anyway to my situation including any use of my name or circumstance for any reason and I have instructed my lawyers to enforce this,” wrote Guru. “I had nothing to do with him in life for over 7 years and want nothing to do with him in death. Solar has my life story and is well informed on my family situation, as well as the real reason for separating from my ex-DJ.”

hmmm seems like there is a lot more to this story… that I don’t have the care to look into.

Rest in Peace Guru

Isn’t it Ironic…don’t you think

Soul Men, a movie about death and grieving…..unfortunately just lost two of its three cast members. By now you have heard that both Bernie Mac (50) and Isaac Hays (65), have both passed away this weekend. Bernie from complications of pneumonia and Isaac, an exercising accident. With so much grief going on it would only be fitting to postpone the release of the movie, but would that really make the shock and grief go away? right now film producers are trying to decide what to do with the movie, should they hold off until next year or should they leave it at it’s November release date?

To sum it up everything about death sucks…especially when your young and still have your whole life to live, Bernie was only 50…. Both of them will be greatly missed.

In one weekend, a significant portion of the movie’s (Soul Men) primary cast has been wiped out. The film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Bernie Mac, and yes, the recently late, great Isaac Hayes in the story of two estranged soul legends (played by Jackson and Mac) who reunite at the Apollo Theater to honor their recently deceased band leader. Principle photography was already finished, so there should be no problem with getting it ready for release, but you have to wonder now whether or not Dimension Films will want to release it.

Death is a big subject in the film. The entire plot of the movie revolves around Mac and Jackson eulogizing the death of their friend with music, only now two members of the film’s actual cast really are dead. Three days ago it sounded like a fantastic idea for a film, especially in light of the way Sam Jackson belted out blues tunes in Black Snake Moan. Now, it seems almost too sad to watch. Buying a ticket to Soul Men could end up feeling like you’re purchasing a seat at someone’s funeral. -source


He wasn’t there

This is so sad…in the upcoming issue of XXL (or maybe it’s already out) Who Cares, but in whatever issue of XXL that Foxy brown is own, she opens up in the magazine (no not her legs) but her heart to tell the story of friendship gone sour between her and Jay-Z. She says how when she needed him Jay-Z just wasn’t there. it’s a tear-jerker and it actually makes you feel like sending her a build-a-bear and telling her that you care…..

It’s often been speculated that Foxy’s heart belonged to a former partner in rhyme who went on to become her boss. She remembers when Brooklyn producer Clark Kent rolled up to her block in a white Lexus and introduced her to a tall, skinny guy with a cane. “He was so smooth. His swagger was just incredible,” Foxy says. “From that moment on, Jay and I became Bonnie and Clyde,” she says. Fifteen years later, on Broken Silence’s “Fallin’,” she raps, “If I was to die, be too many cowards alive/Fox Brown, Bonnie minus the Clyde.”


“A lot of things have happened over the years between Jay and I,” she says of the man who signed her to a multimillion-dollar deal at Def Jam in 2005, nine years after their classic duet “Ain’t No N*gga” gave him his first radio hit. “But there’s an unbreakable bond that will never die. 50 wanted me to be part of his team so bad. He was like, ‘Look, I’ll do it with Jay, half and half.’ And, of course, Jay said no. At one point, 50 asked, ‘Why do you have so much loyalty to this N*gga?’ Jay and I have history. There are things that he could have done better, as far as his loyalty to me, and I’m sure I’ve made mistakes that he felt he could’ve prevented.” Foxy chokes up. “When I lost my hearing, Jay gave me the respect to go heal myself. He stuck with me along the way. But there are times when I just really needed him, and it wasn’t even about Foxy Brown and Jay-Z. It was just like, ‘I need you to help me save my life,’ and he just wasn’t there.”

The tears are streaming down her cheeks. “I would never denounce him in public. That’s just how I feel. But I’ve been incarcerated for eight months, and Jay’s been everywhere, and he hasn’t mentioned one thing about, ‘Tell her I love her. Tell her to be strong.’ That broke my heart more than anything. When they sent me to jail, I just knew he would be there-everyone came. But he never showed up… My mother always says,jay also said this,in the tru life freestyle ‘Inga, when a person shows you who they are, believe them. Been showing me all through the years and you just don’t wanna believe it.’” -source

Al Sharpton Arrested?

My Sharpy was arrested yesterday and no one even told until last night..I needed to prepare so that I could sell my goodies on the street corner to post bail. I commend my boo for standing up for his rights and the rights of the people. Sean Bells wife was also arrested in the protest against that NY city police jerks that were acquitted for shooting Sean 50 damn time…..damn stankin shame.

Yesterday the Rev. Al Sharpton led demonstrations in New York City in protest of the acquittal of three police officers who launched 50 bullets at three unarmed black men in 2006 – injuring two and killing one – Sean Bell – who was to be married the same day.

The demonstrations were described as “pray-ins” and were designed to gain attention by peacefully bringing the city’s busy traffic centers to a crawl. Organizers made certain that the estimated 1,000 participants were ready and willing to be arrested and, sure enough, 216 people from six protest locations were taken into custody. Interested persons with warrants or otherwise legal issues pending were urged not to participate.

That number includes Sharpton, the slain man’s would-be bride, and the two shooting survivors, each of whom lined up and calmy put their hands behind their backs as police arrested them on disorderly conduct charges, according to the AP. They were released about four hours later, said Sharpton spokeswoman Rachel Noerdlinger.

Dr. Jan Adams told celebrity Web site TMZ that he performed a tummy tuck and breast reduction on Donda West, but that she might have died from a heart attack, pulmonary embolism, or massive vomiting.
he goes on to say he did nothing wrong.
Months prior to receiving her cosmetic surgery she wanted Dr. Andre Aboolian to perform the surgery and he warned her to check herself out for clearance first
Dr. Aboolian says:
“She was interested in some cosmetic procedures and we had discussed that in order for her to go through with the procedures, which she was a good candidate for, she needed what’s called a medical clearance which just about anybody over the age of 40 is required to have,” Dr. Aboolian explained to Access. “Because of Donda’s age, she was required to get some cardiac clearance to make sure her heart is in good shape to go through for the surgery.”
Following the consultation in June, Dr. Aboolian spoke with Donda just weeks before her death.
“I spoke to her about two weeks ago and she was supposed to see the internist for the medical clearance, the internist that I had recommended, that I work with. But she never followed through as far as I know,” he added. “Unfortunately situations like this can happen and do happen and they’re only brought out to the news media only when it’s a public figure. Stuff like this does happen here and there and surgery is not to be taken lightly. You have to take the right precautions and you have to prepare for it.”
This story is far from over. be prepared to see lots of sh!t surface about all the players in this thing. The blog world is about to explode. Stay tuned for more drama
