GURU (1966 – 2010) R.I.P.
Keith Elam a.k.a. Keithy E. a.k.a. GURU. Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal, R.I.P
I remember seeing GURU's amazing Jazzmatazz 2 show at Zellerbach Hall in 1995 at Stanford University. Small, intimate venue. Vanessa Daou was the opening act. His big brother, Harry Elam is professor there at Stanford & I remember seeing him there off stage proud of GURU, as he rocked the auditorium.
I'd like to think GURU is now "Above the Clouds" (one of my favorite Gangstarr tracks - listening to it as I write this).
