Tomorrow, April 19, marks the third anniversary of Guru’s death from cancer. Despite his untimely passing, the Gang Starr co-founder’s influence is alive and well among underground artists and heads. On G.U.R.U, the second single off his next solo album, veteran beatsmith Marco Polo and two equally distinguished members of the hip-hop community link up to pay their respects to an emcee they consider, “one of the best of all time.” Talib Kweli handles mic duties, revisiting fond memories of the man and his music over Polo’s string-sampled boardwork. Fellow NYC icon DJ Premier lends a hand behind the wheels of steel. Port Authority 2: The Director’s Cut is slated for release this July via Soulspazm Records. In the meantime, keep it locked for the latest on pre-album mixtape Newport Authority 2, dropping digitally in the near future.
