    R.I.P. Guru from Gang Starr, 1966-2010
    By Annie Zaleski, Tue., Apr. 20 2010 @ 10:54AM

    , one-half of the hip-hop duo Gang Starr, died yesterday due to complications from cancer. He was 43. The group's influence on New York hip-hop is unparalleled, while Guru's seminal 1993 album Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1 -- which dabbled in jazz, soul and funk -- established him as a talented solo artist in his own right. Local artists such as Earthworms certainly carry on Guru and Gang Starr's music and lyrical direction.

    One of the best yet

    DJ Premier: Big L Rest In Peace

    Intro: samples
    Feel the realness
    In this business of rep
    Go ahead

    Fresh out the gate again time to raise the stakes again
    Fatten my plate again y'all cats know we always play to win
    G A N G to the Starr's son
    Haters took this shit too far son
    So thats all for you I'm whiping out your whole team
    I'll splatter your dreams with lyrics to shatter your schemes
    The badder you seem, the more lies you tell
    The more lies you sell, then by surprise you fell
    Into my deathtrap, right into my clutches
    Stupid, you know the God must bless every single mic he touches
    I've suffered, just so I could return harder
    Wanna be the shit starter? **** around, make you a martyr
    I make ya famous, turn around and make ya nameless
    Cause you never understood to me how vital this rap game is
    Save it and hold that, you catch a hot one
    Rhymes chase a fake nigga down soon as I spot one

    Chorus: Gang Starr samples, except where noted
    --Full clip--
    --Do you wanna mess with this?--
    --Gang Starr--
    --I'm one of the best yet--
    --I'm nice like that--
    "It's all good" ---> Noreaga
    --In this business of rep--
    *repeat, change last line to: --so I suggest you take a rest--*

    So if you stand in my way, I'm gonna have to spray
    Learn that "if you come against me son your gonna have to pray"
    Since back in the day I held The Weight and kept my head up
    The wanna see the God catch an L Itz all a Set Up
    I give no man or thing power over me
    Why these niggaz so jealous and lookin sour, over me?
    I'm bolder, G, I'm like impossible to stop
    I'm like that nigga in the ring with you, impossible to drop
    I'm like two magazine fully loaded to your one
    Plus I ain't gonna quit spittin, nigga, till your done
    Plus, more than over, I got my whole shit together
    More than a decade of hits, that'll live forever
    Catchin rep off my name? Your bound to fry
    Know how many niggaz that I know, is done to die
    We never fail, and we ain't never been frail
    You niggaz talk crime, but you scared of jail


    Attackin like a slick Apache lyrics are trigger happy
    Pullin back your wig piece just for the way your lookin at me
    Talk back, blaow! I hit you up right now
    I don't know why so many of y'all wanna be thugs anyhow
    Face the consequence, of your childish nonsense
    I could make your head explode just by my lyrical content
    Get you in my scope and metaphorically snipe ya
    I never liked ya, I gas that ass and then ignite ya
    The flame thrower, make your peops afraid to know ya
    How many times I told ya, "play your position" small soldier
    My heart is colder, makes me wanna resort to violence
    Stop beatin me in the head son, nah, I'm not buyin it
    I'm ready to blast, ready to surpass and harass
    I'm ready to flip, yeah I'm ready to get with all that cash
    I hold my chrome steady, with a tight grip
    So watch your dome already cause this one might hit
