    Guru in Coma

    One of the greatest to touch the mic.

    Gang Starr MC Guru suffered a cardiac episode over the weekend and is currently in a coma, according to multiple reports. Details were unavailable at press time about the rapper's condition and when the incident occurred.

    Hot 97's News Director Miss Info reported that Guru is currently in a New York-area hospital where he's expected to undergo surgery.

    Gang Starr's was scheduled to appear on Sirius XM's Hip-Hop Nation satellite radio station late Sunday night to speak about Guru's condition. At press time the status of that interview was unclear, but according to the producer's blog, the sensitivity of the situation prevented him from speaking publicly. In the same post, Guru was described as "fighting for his life."

    Comprised of Guru (born Keith Elam in Massachusetts) and Premier (born Christopher Martin in Texas), Gang Starr teamed together to help define the New York underground rap sound in the early '90s. Premier's production palette featured sampled jazz records and scratched vocals on the choruses, complimented Guru's uncompromising rhymes. Although the pair would work separately as often as they did together — Guru's Jazzmatazz series of albums and Premier's work with Nas, Jay-Z, and underground act Group Home — Gang Starr continued to release critically acclaimed material throughout the late '90s and early 2000s.

    Their 1998 album Moment of Truth was among their most critically lauded collections and Gangstarr's biggest selling project to date. Gang Starr's last group project, The Ownerz, was released in 2003.

    Guru recently re-released his 2005 solo debut as a digital download and re-christened it Version 7.0: The Street Scriptures.

    Guru spoke with MTV News at the time, noting the pair's penchant for working on outside projects, but ultimately continuing to stoke the Gang Starr flames.

    "You went on your little vacation, but you come back home with a bunch of skills and other things to add to the table," he said. "When we do Gang Starr it always gets more and more intense."
