Guru Awake from Coma? DJ Premier & Elam Family claims Solar is Denying Visitors

"What in Gods Name is Really Going On With Guru??"
- via DJ Premier's blog

Apparently on Wednesday March 3rd Guru and Solar made a statement to

"I am doing fine and
I am recovering! I'm weak though,” Guru told in a statement today. “Solar is the only person who has the accurate info on my situation. Any info from anybody else is false! I appreciate your well wishes and all the love!"

"Guru is resting and doing well after his surgery,” Solar told “The doctors say that he will fully recover from his illness. We thank everyone who send prayers our way and we appreciate the outpouring of love from around the world!”

It would seem that others were skeptical that Solar would be given exclusive access to Guru during his recovery time. DJ Premier has voiced his own concerns via his Twitter page and blog over the past few days and even wonders if Guru really is out of a coma. Most of his concerns stems from this video released by Guru's Nephew who is claiming that Solar is denying the Elam family access to the hospitalized rapper:

Solar responded to the video with statements given to

“I have nothing but the deepest love and respect for The Elam family. But I have not stopped anybody from seeing him,” Solar said. “Guru's brother, sister and niece has visited with him and his brother was here for three days...The hospital records will show that Guru's Brother, sister and Niece visited him last week, Fact !...Guru's well-being and need to heal is what I am concerned with, and that Guru's wishes in this matter be observed."

He goes on to say that Guru is requesting privacy from everyone during his recovery, even some of his family members:

“Guru's family dynamic and who he wants to look out for his interests is Guru's business and best left to Guru to discuss. I will state that Guru wanted this matter to be kept private to protect his loved ones and fans from this ordeal and from it becoming a circus, which it is becoming,” he continued. “Guru has made clear he does not want anything to do with certain people from his past, and for them too be making false statements about his health is unacceptable.”

Premier remained skeptical even after these statements, claiming on his blog this past Friday that he suspects that Solar was "Tweeting" under Guru's name to validate his actions and that Solar is still taking shots at Premier and his camp even during Guru's recovery time. He even questions if Guru is even getting any better at all:

"I really hope Guru is getting healthy but it doesn't looks that way to me. His nephew also put this in question. Superproducer Solar still loves to aim towards DJ Premier (and his people) when Guru is still recovering from a heart attack and coma??...

"Guru" can tweet almost the exact same message in seconds when Superproducer Solar tweeting?? Guru can't even control his own Twitter account now?? And why did "Guru" released all his albums for free when he was in the hospital?? Why did "Guru" even tweeting promotion stuff at the time he was critical ill??"

He also expresses his concerns that Guru is allegedly doing all this "Twittering" and promotion when he is still critically ill and recovering from an operation that occurred only days ago. Preemo is genuinely scared for Guru's health and wonders why Solar is "protecting" him from everyone, fearing that Solar has a hidden agenda.

Update, Sunday 3/7/10: Premier clarifies
his previous statements on his HeadQCourterz radio show Friday night:

“First of all anyone that’s been seeing any statements from me, it’s all false,” Premier explained. “If it wasn’t told to someone directly, it’s not coming from me...Shout out to Justin Ruff" (the family mentioned featured in the above video) "...a true soldier and a warrior that took on his own initiative to truly let motherfuckers know evil lurks in Guru’s life still, and that s**t will cease eventually. ‘Cause God don’t like ugly like they say, and love always conquers the devil."

Premier concluded with some kind words to Guru and the Gang Starr Legacy and made sure that everyone knew he had no personal interests clouding his intentions:

“It’s not about me it’s him, and the Gangstarr legacy,” he said. “Without him there’s no me, and without me there’s no him. Again, Guru we love you my G, stay strong my dude.”

I have to say that I personally have to side with Premier on this. The video from Guru's family member wasn't a good look for Solar and producers taking advantage of stars in times of vulnerability isn't exactly a new concept in the industry. Like Premier, I believe Guru needs to take a good long look at the people he has around him once he fully recovers. I still hope for a full recovery, and a Gang Starr reunion.
