Guru has been a hip hop diplomat representing New York since the early 1990’s. His efforts as the founder and front Man of Gangstarr and his world renowned Jazzmatazz recordings made a lasting impression on hip hop, and he is respected worldwide for his contributions to the culture via his unflappable, calm delivery of rhymes which emphasize self-knowledge, respect, and street credibility as well as his legendary concert performances with Jazzmatazz and Solar.
Guru teamed up with Solar, a producer who grew up breathing hip hop in New York. The duo have founded a record label, 7 Grand Records, and have put a new face on hiphop as well as dropping classic albums of their own. Guru’s partnership with Solar is bearing fruit well worth picking now and forever.
