Guru/Solar Update: Boston Phoenix Outs The Latter As "The Closest Thing I've Ever Seen To True Evil"
Excellent piece in this week's Phoenix summarizing the RIP Guru/Fuck Solar situation to date, tracing Guru's troubled ascent from rebellious Boston teenager to NYC-rap icon, and Solar's path from... whatever he was doing before to these halcyon days of hacked email accounts and fucksolar.com. Lots of ugly stuff, topped by several former Jazzmatazz collaborators' firsthand recollections of physical abuse. Yeah, and the "true evil" thing. Both Solar and Guru's family are keeping quiet lately, in advance of imminent tribute/memorial events; this is still likely to get much worse.
