Guru Out Of Coma, Diagnosed With Anoxia

An update is given of Guru's condition. The rapper is reportedly stable and suffers from lack of oxygen, remains in hospital indefinitely.

After a week without updates, legendary emcee/producer Keith "Guru" Elam's condition has been updated Monday morning. Guru's publicist has reported that he is in stable condition, ending three weeks of coma-reports to press and fans. Moreover, the emcee has been diagnosed with Anoxia, effects from a lengthy history of asthma and lung problems. The term "anoxia" means "lower levels of oxygen than most." Per medical reports online, that oxygen level not only effects breathing, but also the required levels for organ tissue.

On February 28, Guru went into coma after suffering cardiac arrest in New York. Although the rapper has yet to speak publicly, statements have been released on his behalf, causing controversy within Guru's family and the Hip Hop community. Quotes have been released asserting both his association with present production partner Solar as well as his continued disassociation with former Gang Starr partner DJ Premier. Members from Guru's family have also spoken out publicly, expressing distrust of Guru's handler.

That present spokesman, Solar, told publicists for this morning's statement that it is unclear at present when Guru will be released from an unidentified New York hospital, but did add that Guru is aware of fan support. "The outpouring of love from around the world has been tremendous," Solar said. "I'm reading some of the best e-mails, texts and Twitters that come in and Guru enjoys them. I think that's what has been helping his recovery and what's got him in there fighting."

    Glad to hear Guru's out of his coma. The team over at checktheweather.net would like folk to know that Anoxia is Environmentally related. Check the post to see why Guru may be a victim of Environmental racism! http://checktheweather.net/2010/03/23/wtf-legendary-hip-hop-emcee-may-be-victim-of-environmental-racism/

  • OIN

    Big up Guru! One of the all time greats in rap history!!! Solar is by far one of the worst Producers in hip-hop. He is a cancer to Guru's career. Hopefully Gang Starr Foundation will regroup and we can try and forget about the last 7 years of Guru's work.

  • HRCMS

    Good to see that he's getting better

  • antiguccimane

    fuck solar and his wack ass.......another gangstarr album when u get out guru please

  • kpanilaryea28

    DID ANYBODY HERE THAT SONG FROM BIG SHUG IT JUST DONT STOP PRODUCED BY DJ PREMIER? THE WHOLE SONG WAS BASICALLY SAYING THAT YOU AINT SHIT WO DJ PREMIER AND THAT ALL THE PREVIOUS RAPPERS WHO USE TO FUCK WIT HIM NEEDED TO START FUCKIN WIT HIM AGAIN. HE WAS TALKIN BOUT GURU AND NAS ESPECIALLY. BOY IS THIS SONG SO TRUE. IF YALL AINT HEARD IT LISTEN TO IT AND YOU KNOW THE BEAT IS LIKE A SOMALIAN INFECTED WIT AIDS= SIIIIICK!

    • kpanilaryea28

      DAMN I FORGOT BOUT JAY HELL YEA " SOME CLAIM THEY GOT THE NEW PREM/ BUT THEY LIVE THE LIFE OF NIGHTMARES, NOT DREAMS"

    • Articulate1

      Good looks on pointing that out...Shug was also singling out Jay-Z in that track. All these NY legendary rappers that blew up and went corporate need to get off their high horse and start fuckin with the greatest producer of all time again. Premo basically launched all their careers and made their best joints so they need to start fuckin with him again. On a diff note, get better Guru.
