Condolences to his family and friends.

Even though this is not dancehall/reggae/soundsystem related it’s very related to me.

Keith Elam, better known as Guru, one half of the legendary Gangstarr, died April, the 19th after a long sufferation from Cancer.

I can hardly think of any other rapper that has as much influence on me, when I was a teenager, as Guru.

Rest in Power Star!

Legendary Guitarist Lynn Taitt, who’s closely associated with Jamaican rocksteady music died January, the 20th, after a long fight ‘gainst cancer.

May his soul rest in peace.
