For the past 15 minutes rumors that revered Gang Starr MC Guru has suffered a heart attack and is currently in a coma have been swirling around Twitter and a few Hip-Hop sites...
For the most part these "rumors" are completely un-substantiated and lack a credible source, however, if they do turn out to be true (which I'm hoping like crazy they aren't) I know personally I'm praying big time that he pulls through.
This terrible news has been confirmed to be true....
Guru's sister Tricia has stated that Guru did in fact suffer a cardiac arrest earlier today and subsequently has slipped into a coma.
Today we got a pulbic statement from Guru's partner and producer Solar regarding the situation and his condition.
from Yo Public Relations:
"Guru is struggling with a serious health issue. We, the whole 7 Grand Records family, appreciate all your love and well wishes. We continue to hold out hope that Guru will make a full recovery from this. We ask that his privacy on this matter will be respected. Again, thank you for all your support through this trying time."
PHH sends it's thoughts and prayers to Solar as well as the whole Elam family...
