Guru of Gang Starr in coma after heart attack


Terrible terrible news. Legendary emcee Guru, one-half of the oldschool hiphop act Gang Starr, suffered a cardiac episode over the weekend and is now in a coma according to multiple sources. More: HipHopDX,, TMZ, Animal, MTV, Billboard. Details are thin, but we do know that he was hospitalized in New York.

Born Keith Elam, his stage name is an acronym for "Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal." No kidding, man. Embedded above, a classic Gang Starr track: Mass Appeal. Get well, Guru.
