The Best of Underground Hip-Hop

Marco Polo - G.U.R.U. (ft. Talib Kweli & DJ Premier)


Without exaggeration, this is my favorite eulogy hip-hop song ever. The production is phenomenal, as I would expect from Marco Polo, my favorite Canadian producer. Everyone on this track obviously went all out. Cost isn’t a factor when you’re making the song for your fans just as much as you’re making it for own piece of mind and your lost friend. I didn’t realize Talib Kweli and Guru had such a history, and Talib’s potent story telling delivers on all fronts. Guru died on this day (April 19) exactly 3 years ago at the age of 48 from Cancer. He was a king of the golden era, and consistently delivered sharp and well thought out lyrics over DJ Premier’s classic beats while they were Gang Starr. My you forever rhyme in pace and rest in beats.
