Good news: #guru surgery was successful, keep sending him love
— DJ Premier Blog News (@DJPremierBlog) March 2, 2010
According to his partner, DJ Premier, and to AllHipHop, who cite sources as saying “Guru is alive and recovering from his surgery. Doctors are expecting a full recovery luckily.” It’s probably too soon to start talking about silver linings but if you were so inclined, you might hope that the MC’s brush with death will spark a resurgence of interest in the man and in his music. Lately his rep had been beat up a bit in favor of a history that rewrote Premier as the genius as the group–true, but Guru was no slouch either, and no amount of Jazzmatazz records can tarnish that fact. Get well, Keith.
