19th April 2010 marked the death of one of the most popular Hip-Hop artists in our generation. Legendary MC Guru lost an on-going battle with cancer, and the Hip-Hop world was saddened by the news which was confirmed at the early hours of Tuesday morning. Guru is of course the lyricist behind the Hip-Hop duo Gangstarr which also consisted of DJ Premier. Gangstarr were widely regarded as one of the most favourable and popular Hip-Hop duo’s in the world.
After the split of Gangstarr, Guru continued to remain in-demand, and the Jazzmatazz series was born. Working with a brand new producer at the time named Solar, Guru took a new direction with his sound for the Jazzmatazz series, promising he wouldn’t fade from his Hip-Hop roots. Four successive releases saw the Jazzmatazz series a collectors item. 2009 marked the release of Guru Lost And Found 8:0 which was a massive hit not only on Hip-Hop Kings but across the Hip-Hop board.
2010 has marked the untimely death of Guru and the tributes have been flowing. DJs to bloggers to radio personalities have flooded the airwaves and Internet pages with old school music and interviews. Guru will be ultimately missed and classed alongside the other Hip-Hop legends. I expect the readers of Hip-Hop Kings to show support and love to Guru. R.I.P 19th April 2010.
Following the promotion for Guru and Solar’s new album “Lost and Found 8.0” the duo have announced a list of European tour dates where fans can see them perform live along with the “7 Grand Players”. Hip-Hop fans everywhere will be able to appreciate the music Solar and Guru create, and the likes of Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Slovenia will be blessed with their presence. Solar and Guru will also be joined by DJ Doo Wop throughout the tour. You can check the tour dates for the Solar and Guru 8.0 tour on the player below.

Every Hip-Hop fan is fully aware of the extensive discography of former Gangstarr member Guru. Now working with super-producer Solar, the pair have formed an inseperable partnership over the past few years, and not only creating great music, have been the responsible force behind the launch of 7 Grand Records. Guru and Solar‘s “Guru Lost and Found 8.0″ is now in stores, and as always, Hip-Hop Kings have formed a partnership with Amazon where the album is available for purchase for only $8.99. You can download Guru and Solar – Guru 8.0 Lost and Found by clicking the link below.
We’ve always supported the music from Guru and Solar over the past six years. We finally have the video for the single “Lost and Found” which will be featured on Guru and Solar’s new album “Guru 8.0 Lost and Found”. Guru has taken the beat from the classic “House of the Rising Son” and made his version his own – in a way that only Guru can. With a liquid-like flow, and ridiculous rhyming pattern, Guru and Solar really do justice to the original, and make a highly catchy single for the album.
