Guru was right up there with Rakim. If you listen to his early work (even from '87, when he was unkown), he was using a ton of in rhymes and multis. He was a postive person, and always stayed original. This is really sad.

More monkey music, with the typical black glorification of thuggery, law-breaking, violence, and a wasted life. Then when the consequences of the "ghetto" lifestyle become clear, they blame "racism"
