RIP GURU – Gangstarr Vol. A-Z

Guru of Gangstarr passed away today.  One of the most pivotal duos of hip-hop, along with EPMD, they really changed the landscape of the hip-hop sound and my life personally.  Love Sick was the first of many Gangstarr records I considered personal classics.  Although, Guru’s music post-Gangstarr was not my favorite, I still respected the man and his legacy.  I bet no one is going to be playing tribute sets with 7 Solar Grand productions in them.  With his passing, I hope the groups that squabble over small beef get their act together – talking to you, Little Brother.

In honor of Guru, here are Gangstarr Remixes and Rarities Volume A-Z.  Close to 400 songs here!Links and Tracklisting after the jump. This list contains 26 volumes of rarities; it contains 99% of what Guru and DJ Premier have ever recorded (minus their official albums, of course). the only missing ones are only some guru productions and a couple of buckshot lefonque ones DJ Rremier produced. enjoy.

    Guru was one of the best.
    I spent so much hours with his music in my life.
    So i made an Guru Tribute Mix to honour him.
