Statik Selektah’s 2 Hour Guru Tribute on Shade45
Statik Selektah played a two hour tribute set to Guru last night on his Showoff Radio show on Shade 45.
i know alot of DJs have been doing Guru tributes… which is dope, but this is 2 hours of music… from 1988, thru his history including Jazzmattazz Vol 1-3, to the end of the Gangstarr days. I covered what i feel was truly Gurus greatest work. this includes unreleased music, the b-sides, remixes, etc.
i also had Big Shug, Doo-Wop, Freddie Foxx, Consequence, and Chubby Chub call in and leave some Guru Memories….
he was an icon to me, as well as a friend, and i definitely wouldn’t be who i am without the presence of Gangstarr’s music in my life growing up. Shout out to the Gangstarr/Year Round crew for always being real people as well…. through the trials and tribulations. Rest In Peace G….
Statik wanted to remind everyone to still support Guru’s music even though all these mixes are coming out. If you can’t find the physical albums there’s always iTunes.
