A few months ago, in reporting on the strange life and death of hip-hop deity Guru, I was fortunate to get an incredibly candid interview with Brownman, the acclaimed Canadian trumpeter who toured with Jazzmatazz toward the end of Guru's life and career.
Today, with permission from me and Brownman, FuckSolar.
The following article will appear in tomorrow's Boston Phoenix, which went to print late yesterday, before GURU released this statement to AllHipHop.com. As reported, he is doing well. Furthermore, though, he is no longer in a coma. We're all pushing for a big recovery here; hopefully this woke some hip-hop fans up to how we need to respect the architects while they're still here with us.
