This is an interesting story… Thanks to Missinfo for transcribing.
Guru’s nephew, Justin Nicholas-Elam Ruff, makes an impassioned statement on behalf of his family. He claims that Guru’s producer/partner Solar has gained power of attorney for his uncle and is denying his family any access to him. He says that Guru actually fell ill in early February, and since then they have been shut out by Solar.
..Solar has totally cut us off….the doctors and the staff at the hospital will not discuss any information with Guru’s family….in order for the family to change the situation, we have to hire a lawyer…unfortunately we don’t have a couple of weeks, my uncle Guru is in a serious….I know that Solar has been his right hand man, day in and day out, for the last 6 years, but does that not give him the right to make decidsion whether of not his own family gets to see Guru or learn about his status. The fact that he’s acting like this lets me know he does not have Guru’s best interest in mind. It is a control thing with Solar.
On Tues, I send Solaar a text message [checking to see if I could get an update on Guru’s status]. Solar sent me a response that said: “Trish [Guru’s sister, ] started this!!! And guru would never have told her he was in the hospital, this is horrible what she did!! Now I need to care for Guru. Peace….”
This comes just hours after Team Solar released an odd statement on behalf of Guru: I’ll post the full statement ater the jump, but drives home the point that Solar is the only source for Guru information…read that full statement after the jump.
GURU ISSUES OFFICIAL STATEMENT ABOUT HEALTH STATUS
There are a lot of rumors and wrong information circulating around about Guru’s current situation and health status. Hit producer and Guru’s longtime partner Solar wants to make clear that only he has access to Guru and his doctors.
“Guru is resting and doing well. 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!
Guru, the sole founder* of the world famous Hip-Hop group GangStarr, who is currently recovering from his surgery, issued an official statement about his health status and addressed people who are spreading wrong information.
“I am doing fine and I am recovering! I’m weak though. Solaar 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!” says the legendary MC.
Guru has suffered a heart attack over the weekend in New York City and Hip-Hop fans around the world have shown massive love and support to one of the greatest rappers of all time.
During what must be an incredibly hard and stressful period in life, keep sending your prayers, thoughts, and wishes to Guru and his loved ones.
