  • Gangstarr-Above The Clouds

    3:46

    (Guru)
    I self lord and master
    shall bring disaster to evil factors
    demonic chapters shall be captured
    by kings
    Through the storms of days after
    and to the earth from the sun
    through triple darkness to blast ya
    with a force that cant be compared
    to any fire power
    for its mind power shared
    the brainwave causes vessels to circulate
    like constellations reflect at night
    off the lake
    word to the father and mother earth
    seeking everlasting life through this hell
    for what its worth
    look listen and observe
    and watch another sea cycle
    pullin my peeps to the curb
    heed the words
    its like ghetto style proverbs
    the righteous man sacrifice
    to get what they deserve
    cannot afford to be confined to a cell
    brainwaves swell
    turning a desert to a well
    experience the best teacher
    thoughts will spring like streetsweepers
    little daddy street preacher
    illustrious feature
    narrator you select
    accompanied by Deck plus the DJ you respect
    seven and a half combined
    over the frontline
    the ten percenters
    promotin slander in the air time
    bear in mind
    jewels be the tools of the trade
    sharp blades heavenly praise
    and dues are paid

    Above the crowds above the clouds
    where the sounds are original
    infinite skills create miracles
    warrior spiritual
    Above the clouds raining down
    Holdin it down

    (Inspectah Deck)
    I leave scientists mentally scarred
    triple extra large
    wild like rock stars
    who smash guitars
    poison bars from the gods
    bust holes in your mirage
    and catch a charge
    shake em down like the riot squad
    invade your zone
    ruined like ancient Rome
    I span the universe and
    return to earth to claim my throne
    the maker owner
    plus sole controller
    Ayatollah rest in the sky
    the clouds my sofa
    stand like colossus
    regardless to whom or what
    numerous attempts at my life
    so who to trust
    who but us
    to supply ya with the fire
    the burning truth
    150 absolute proof
    on the mic like Moses
    smokin golden la
    survivor of the oldest tribe
    whose soldiers die
    I know the five families
    who shed tears and more
    but our hands are on the ammo
    cause the battles still on
    sound the horn
    we come rumblin through the function
    precise laser beam technique
    to touch something
    when we die hard
    they build a monument to honor us with
    humongous effect in the world
    we couldve conquered it

    Above the crowds above the clouds
    where the sounds are original
    infinite skills create miracles
    warrior spiritual
    Above the clouds raining down
    Holdin it down

  • DJ Premier & The Badder Band: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

    24:28

    Aug 21, 2017 | Abby O'Neill | Three-time Grammy winner DJ Premier, one of the definitive architects of New York hip-hop, brought a new type of life to NPR's Tiny Desk: our first concert helmed by a DJ.

    A packed house of head-nodding journalists grooved through their lunch hour to a nine-song medley of iconic Premier productions while decompressing from the unrelenting grind of the news cycle. The set list rested on the undeniable footprint of Preemo's classics, but this was more than just another DJ mix. His touring outfit, The Badder Band, overlaid Premier's blends with an undulating electric bass courtesy of Brady Watt, a steady accent on the one from drummer Lenny The Ox Reece and boisterous horns from Mark Williams and Jonathan Powell.

    But it was Premier who remained front-and-center, commanding the crowd like a true party rocker. With throwbacks ranging from Gangstarr's Step into the Arena to an amped rendition of Jeru The Damaja's Da Bitches, embellished by The Badder's jazzy horns, Preemo concluded the set with a Moment of Truth, featuring the exalted rhymes of his posthumous Gangstarr partner, Guru.

    Tiny Desk concerts are short by design, so naturally the format could barely scratch the surface of Premier's vault of street anthems, done for the likes of the Notorious B.I.G., JAY-Z, Nas, Kanye West, Big L, M.O.P., Mos Def, Group Home, Jeru the Damaja, AZ, Snoop Dogg, and many more. Even after a career spanning almost three decades, the man born Christopher Martin has managed to stay authentic to his analog grit and sample-chopping integrity, as if he were still an underdog.

  • Guru - Feel The Music

    3:42

    From 1995 Album: Jazzmatazz, Vol. 2: The New Reality.....

    Guru's Myspace:


    Get his music:


    Keith Elam (July 17, 1962 - April 19, 2010), better known by his stage name Guru, is an American rapper and member of the hip-hop duo Gang Starr. Born in the Boston neighborhood of Roxbury [note 1], he is known for delivering complex lyrics in a unique monotone style. Members of the hip-hop community[specify] consider him to be one of the pioneers of hiphop/jazz crossover. The name Guru is a backronym that stands for Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal and the less often used God is Universal, he is the Ruler Universal.

    On February 28, 2010 Guru suffered a cardiac arrest, on March 2, he was reported to be recovering after surgery.

    Founded in 1987, Gang Starr built a sizable following in the early 90's, releasing classic albums like Step in the Arena (1991) and Daily Operation (1992). Guru's lyrical style is based on battle rhymes delivered smoothly, modestly, and with sly wit; he typically avoids using overwhelming charisma, focusing instead on his rhyming ability, which developed into his trademark monotone style.[citation needed] Over the years he has even taken on younger rappers, including Jeru the Damaja, as proteges. He is credited with DJ Premier for executive producing Jeru's debut, The Sun Rises in the East (1994).

    In 1993, he released his first solo album, Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1. The album featured collaborations with Donald Byrd, N'Dea Davenport and Roy Ayers, while his second LP, Jazzmatazz, Vol. 2: The New Reality, featured Ramsey Lewis, Branford Marsalis and Jamiroquai. The Jazzmatazz albums are commonly considered some of the best rap of the early 90s, Guru's reputation was also bolstered through the continued success of Jazzmatazz, Vol. 3: Streetsoul (2000) and Baldhead Slick & Da Click (2001).

    Moreover, recent Gang Starr albums have continued to garner Guru critical acclaim. Prominent Boston underground rapper Mr. Lif frequently cites Guru as a major stylistic influence; he appears as a guest with Lif on the Perceptionists' debut album, Black Dialogue (2005).

    Besides Gang Starr, his Jazzmatazz and solo albums, Guru has collaborated with countless artists since the early 90s. Not only in hiphop, but also with artists from various genres such as pop, electronica/dance, acid jazz and even brass bands.

    His first proper solo album, in his own words, was Version 7.0: The Street Scriptures (2005), released with the help of producer and new backup MC Solar (who is not to be confused with MC Solaar from France). The album reached #1 on the college hip-hop charts, but was a failure with both fans and critics. It still managed to sell relatively well for an independent release.

    On February 28, 2010, Guru went into cardiac arrest and, following surgery, fell into a coma. It was claimed that Guru had briefly wakened from his coma but died on April 19, 2010, aged 47, from multiple myeloma.

    In a letter purportedly drafted on his deathbed, Guru asked that Solar manage his posthumous image, likeness, etc. on behalf of himself, and his son KC, and that DJ Premier not associate himself with Guru. Solar claimed that Guru had awoken from his coma to release the statement whilst members of the rapper's family stated that he never regained conciousness from his coma. Guru's family claimed that Solar prevented them from contact with Guru during the latter's final illness. The validity of the death-bed letter has been challenged by Guru's family.

    In 2007 Guru was ranked at 45 for the Top 50 MCs of our time: 1987-2007
