One of Jazz Hip Hop’s pioneers has sadly passed away due to complications following heart surgery. Guru was an amazing wordsmith and a true talent in the hip hop game. We were lucky enough to see him live in Sydney a few years back.
He released the now classic Jazzmatazz albums in the 90’s which featured a young Jay K, Roy Ayers, Donald Byrd and N’Dea Davenport. If you want to find some Soulful Jazzy Hip Hop that isn’t lost in bling fantasy land then you should definitely order in JAZZMATAZZ Vol 1, 2 & 3 from your local record store, especially vol 1 & 2. It’s a sad day.
Rest in Peace Guru.
