DJ Premier Remembers Guru (Video)

blame it on Meka December 29, 2010

I think this is actually the first time (well, the first time to me at least) Primo has gone in front of the camera to reminisce about his fallen, one-time partner in rhyme. In this interview with Rap Fix, he opens up about the infamous “final letter” from Guru…

The letter was said to be a revelatory tell-all about the inner workings of Guru and Primo’s working partnership and of Guru’s dissatisfaction with his former ally and his own family. A classy Primo sidestepped the letter’s vicious barbs and described the words as false – and it has been said the attention-hungry Solar was behind the ruse the entire time.

“The letter didn’t exist, which I didn’t… I wasn’t worried about that anyway, “said Primo. “Even if he did write that letter, I know how he writes. I’ve been around this guy for 23 years. I know everything about him and I know his family real well and they’re down with me, they ride with me.”
Primo went on to share intimate details of Guru’s funeral in which he and originating Gang Starr member Big Shug eulogized the fallen rap legend.

“We had a private funeral with his remains there and [I] spoke at the funeral,” shared the prolific producer. “It was a lovely ceremony. I did everything from the heart off my head, which is how you’re supposed to do it.”
