Last week, Tim Westwood dedicated his Throwback Thursday installment to Proof in honor of the 10th anniversary of the rapper's death. This week, honors Keith "Guru" Elam six years after the Gang Starr emcee lost his battle with cancer.
Westwood digs up a 2000 freestyle in which Guru is joined by Common, who was coming off the release of his classic album Like Water For Chocolate. Guru and Common trade bars over Dr. Dre's "The Next Episode" for nearly ten minutes... at the end, Guru plugs his album Jazzmatazz Vol. 3, which was released on October 3, 2000.
Listen to the freestyle and watch the video for some cool throwbacks of Guru, DJ Premier, & others.
You still don't understand that we iller than y'all
And it ain't just because we know more killers than y'all
It's just because half of y'all ain't willing to brawl
Me? I'm quick to start it with you chicken-hearted
