    Whats everyones take on Solar?

    Personally, I think hes tryin to cash in on everything Guru related, Guru owned the Gangstarr label and any merch associated with it, so all profits go to Solar.

    Would a man on his death bed be thinking about awards and tributes?

    My theory:

    When Guru was in some financial troubles Solar stepped in and said I'll help you out a little, you join 7 Grand records. So Solar benifits financially from his cash cow MC. I hate to think it, but Solar and Guru might have been a couple. Either Solar was obsessed with Guru or just wants to seem to be so close that he gets all the monies involved.

    READ THE FAREWELL LETTER, GURU IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE A WORDSMITH, THOSE WORDS AREN'T ELOQUENT

    Furrreal, RIP Guru, its strook me after hearing this that him and primo settled there stuff
    And I was listenin to Full Clip and I thought to myself, someone should really make a full clip for guru, but a sumone actually good..if only Big L could come back and repay the favor

    RIP Guru Big L and Gang Starr..would have loved to hear a new updated formula :'(

    There are only 2 MC's still rhyming to this day (I believe) who I'd want to see make a Full Clip to Guru, those would be Rakim or Nas.
    About the letter, it's weird yeah, and numerous people claim to think Solar has done some ghostwriting in it.

    also the fact that solar is talking about movie deals instead of talking about a rest in peace posse cut should tell u his intention

    unless all proceeds go to gurus foundation/son he can eat hiphops dick


    atleast if guru was siting here right now he could look back and say he stayed true to the scene and never compramised his belifes for a profit

    Part of the "farewell letter" sounds like some legal contract bullshit... it's pretty ridiculous.

    I don't often give a fuck when famous people die, but damn. Rest in peace Guru.

    Yeah Guru was Representing that Raw Hip Hop shit he remembered that rap is some thing you do. Hip Hop is a life style. Ya gotta clear ya mind outta that violence shit and get more into becoming heads on the rise. Unity

    TO me its just bitching, i think what mathers is that we lost a big General in the game, and us next generation, should keep up with those type of dudes. If you get what i mean, its our time, fuck the past, we the future
