Solar Speaks To MTV's Sway, Clarifies Rumors On Guru's Death

Guru's post-2003 production partner says there was not a romantic relationship, defends false foundation reports, and says he kept mental and physical notes for the final letter.

MTV News' Sway Calloway spoke to Guru's musical partner and business manager Solar this week. In the wake of Monday's tragic announcement of Guru's death, Solar has been scrutinized by Hip Hop fans for both his relationship with Guru's blood relatives, as well as suspicions that he wrote a damaging letter, making allegations of a Guru-led foundation that family members were unaware of.

Sway boldly asked Solar about a potential homosexual relationship between the artists, that Sway referred to as "romantic in nature." Solar quickly waved doing those rumors, in saying, "Yeah, that's untrue. Completely unfounded and true. Guru's a family man. I'm a family man. And it's always been that way." Independent of his and Guru's relationship, Solar also asserted both artists heterosexuality. "We're straight men. Down the line." The New York producer who had worked with Guru since 2004 continued, "He dealt with women and family. I dealt with women and family. It's the way it is, it's the way it's always been, and there's never been any blurring of the lines whatsoever."

As the interview continued, Sway asked about rumors of physical abuse, specifically Solar being physically harmful to Guru. With a gasp, the producer replied, "Wow. Me and Guru, we used to play-fight. Rough-house. Not only with him, but other members of the band when you're on the road. You knock around, and that's it. I can't even begin to imagine where that would come from. It's idiotic. Again, these are all kinds of accusations [made] without Guru to be here and look you in the eye and say, 'This is just ridiculous.' Now it's just me saying this is ridiculous." Earlier this week, a member of that band, the duo's deejay, Doo Wop, who had worked with Guru for almost 10 years previously, spoke of an altercation while on tour, although the other party was not specified.

Additionally, Sway asked Solar about Each One Counts. In Guru's alleged final letter, the children's charity organization was mentioned, despite the Elam Family being unaware that such a foundation even existed. "That's an organization that was started by Guru, myself and my people. Hopefully, it'll grow to be a huge, worldwide charitable organization," defended Solar. "There's a lot of things Guru's done in his life with his business that [the Elam Family] doesn't know about. He doesn't report to them. He never did report to them. Guru's a full-grown man." Further speaking of family relations, Solar said that it would be the family's responsibility to provide Guru with a proper funeral. "I'm done with that. That's on...that's between...that's on them." The production and business partner of the last six years added that after this past week's emotional duress, he was unsure if he'll attend the funeral.

Moments later, in a detailed conversation about the Elam Family, Solar stated, "I've got the utmost respect for his family." The producer spoke of meeting Guru's father, and commented that Guru's only mentions of his sister were that they were not close, and presently estranged in his final days.

Sway also confronted Solar about Guru's dying letter. Many have questioned how much of the peculiar statements were authored by the Gang Starr founder. "Guru wrote some of it himself. Some of it he was able to write," said Solar, referring to Guru's declining physical abilities. The parts that Guru did not pen himself, Solar said were tracked by him. "I made a lot of notes that was kept on my own."

The full interview segments are below, which touch more on the letter, family visitation rights, and more.

    When he talks it sounds as if he & Guru were operating as a married couple, LMAO, this guys is the devil.

  • SixStar General

    People shouldn't really be speaking on this anymore. Not where Premo was, not where, solar, his family, or any of these other controversial circumstances surrounding his death. The man died of cancer. He's dead. Everyone is so caught up and he said she said bullshit that they forget the big picture. Guru died. Everyone should just mourn the death, honor Guru for his accomplishments and leave him and his family and close friends alone. Go cop a Gangstarr album and just remember why we all listened to him. And quit fighting over dumb shit. And whatever it was that people say Premo did to make them not work together, Guru obviously forgave him because they did agree that they would start working together soon but was cut off by Guru's death.

  • Gee-Chee Vision

    You know Bun B was a true friend to Pimp C because Bun used to visit him in prison. Pimp C said that Bun stayed by his side. That's Friendship. Brotherhood. A nigga that'll die for you. Where was Premo. You all on some ol' CoIntelPro shyt. That's that bitch shyt that got Black Panthers shot the eff up by other plantation house Negroes. Guru chose Solar as a friend. Not Premo or yall house Negroes. Where the eff was Premo. Obviously Guru didn't want Premo around. I question that shyt now when I think of Group Home and Jeru. What happened to that relationship? Respect Guru and his choice of brothers. All these rap groups and rock groups that broke up and don't speak to each other till this day and you all act surprised when it comes to Gangstarr. They human FOOL. Listen to Premo's interview with Red Bull Music Academy. He makes it clear that Guru was the cause of them not working together. Guru was pissed off at Premo for something. I don't know what, it's not my business, and you niggas don't know either. But you act'n like you all knew these niggas personally. I work with an artist collective in the art world. Fans of ours don't see the side of the group that argue and fight about group decisions. I don't go out and spread our business. But that's how we work. Sometimes as a human you can deal with shyt, but I ain't got no blood ties to anyone. Any nigga can step when they feel so. That's life. That's business.

    • 905

      And why the fuck are you saying house negroes...thats some bullshit man. Those are your brothers, regardless. Such a hypocrite talking about true friendship then using the term "House Nigger". Fuck you and yo mamma bitch.

  • realtalk 4 u

    I guess the hip hop world is ready to accept a gay rapper. Cuz most of yall think Guru was gay. But you still love him. So it can happen.....

  • shamar from the m town

    damn dudes talks shit like we were close, i took care of him or im gone take care his son then he keeps his family away from guru but yet when he dies he dont have nothing to do with the funeral? and this fake ass foundation he talking about aint nothing but a way to funnnel the little money guru did have into his pocket this dude needs to step aside and take his ass back t france and let gurus family handle this whether they were there or not he gone now so whatever happened while he was alive is only a memory now

  • GregRodgers

    Hey... Has anyone seen this picture of Guru and Solar with tow dudes overseas? Does it look like there is madd blood on Guru's wife beater? http://www.guru7grand.net/pics/hood_dreamin_video/3.jpg If so maybe Solar can tell us about what happened here....it looks like Guru caught a bad one from someone....Solar?

  • Brother_Shabaka

    No one can understand how someone could possibly distant themselves from their family like Guru allegedly did until you've been in my line of work (dealing with a lot of estates and assets). Your family don't give a f%$# about you when you're alive and sickly. No one wants to come around and help you wipe your ass when you can't. But the minute, and I mean the VERY minute, you take your last breath, them vultures are over your house helping themselves to your shit claiming you always said they can have this and have that. I've seen my share of situations where the one family member with a conscious has to run over to the house from the hospital and stop family members from stealing stashed cash, taking valuable art and finding and destroying wills they weren't apart of. Yet everybody crying and speaking at your funeral like they gave a shit. It's like the parents who never come to the pta meetings or parent open houses. But EVERYBODY got a phuckin camera out come graduation time talking about "that's my baby!". So where was Guru's family when he was maad sick? We are all speculating because we've never been in this situation. But some of us have witnessed it and choose to forget. Ever hear of the battles that take place between siblings from the same womb as soon as Mom or Grandma dies without a will? How about the Mother who takes care of 7 children but then gets old and 7 children suddenly can't take care of that 1 mother? In the nursing home she goes. Give Solar the benefit of the doubt. You never know. Primo may have done some maaaaad foul shyt to Guru that made him take the stance he took (i.e. screw his wife? Could be something CRAZY). And how could the family doubt the foundation claims. I worked with Guru's ex wife 15 years ago (at least they called each other hubby and wife) and they were doing work with disavantaged children overseas. So the foundation claims appear pretty valid to me. How could the family not know this?

    • Gee-Chee Vision

      Thank you for telling these short sighted squares how the world functions. I love Premo's work with Gangstarr. I think Premo WAS the greatest up until 98'. I love Guru's work with Gangstarr. But Guru chose Solar to be around him not Premo. Why wasn't Premo around? Nobody's asking that. I listened to Premo's interview with Red Bull Music Academy while Guru was alive. He made it clear that Guru was the one refusing to do another Gangstarr joint. So I question what the hell did Premo do? But that ain't my business. I work in an visual arts collective and fans don't see the side of the story when we argue and fight about issues. It's apart of being human. They don't see the close friends I have away from the group. The same goes for the other members. So just because Solar ain't apart of the Gangstarr legacy don't make Premo a better man worthy of any more respect as a human being than Solar. Peace to you bra and your clarity of thought.

    • Joe_Mama

      I swear to GOD think "BROTHER_SHABAKA" is Solar trying to comment on this and cover his ass.. Give Solar the benefit of the doubt? FUCK you... You worked with Guru's Ex Wife? Yea fuckin right. You're about as credible as Solar, and you sound like his sick twisted ass. This dude Solar doesn't tell Guru's family that Guru is in the hospital for over a month, when they find out, he keeps them at bay. He treats Guru like he owns him, he wrote that bogus ass letter, (you all know he did. Guru was in a fuckin coma), I wouldn't be surprised if he killed Guru himself. He's slippin' up and it's all gonna come out. I think the family really needs to have Solar investigated THOROUGHLY and have a thorough autopsy on Ru as well. This man is foul as fuck. He won't go to the funeral cuz he knows he'll get stomped out and I hope he does. God knows I'm not a violent man, but I wish death upon Solar because he oozes "FRAUD" from his very pores. He wants to keep Guru's son because he'll receive any "tributes" that the son will supposedly be getting. He wrote the letter saying "Solar has my true life story" or some shit. Really? REALLY? Guru's Fam doesn't have his "true story"? Preemo doesn't have his "true story"? But the dude who's known him for only 6 years has it? Oh man I can go on and on about this shit But I know that we all know whats up. The only reason I think Guru was even fuckin with a guy like Solar is because Solar was able to get in his ear. Guru (more than DJ Premier) had ALWAYS wanted to go platinum. At one point while he was with Gang Starr it was the only way he was going to feel validated. He felt like he wasn't getting what deserved. Which is why, I think, "The Ownerz" album was more commercial sounding than anything they've ever done, especially with the guests they had and everything. It wasn't a bad album, but you could really hear the difference. I think once that didn't go platinum, Solar got to Guru about going in a different direction to get his respect and broke up the group. Which is why they split on apparent good terms. I mean, have you heard Guru's interviews and shit after he started working with Solar. He was sounding like he was the only one in Gang Starr, like his head got big as fuck. He just didn't sound like himself anymore. Whether it went down like that or not isn't even the point. Either way the bottom line is Solar is a snake, and he's not even good at being one. I know he's gonna get his... I just hope it's fucking soon. And one more thing, this fucking serpent doesn't have the power to taint Guru's legacy, so please let's stop saying that he did. Guru's legacy is Gang Starr Foundation, and Solar will never take that away. Yea Guru was on some other shit musically the past few years, but none of it is going to over shadow what Gang Starr did. When all is said and done, he will be remembered as one of the best emcee's ever, in one of hip-hop's greatest groups. It's Like Jordan... yeah he spent his last couple of years in the NBA with the Wizards, but do we really care? of course not, his legacy as a player is set.

    • MalcolmLittle

      No disrespect, but where you been at the past 6 weeks fam?! Guru's kinfolk had BEEN tryin to be with their loved one while he was still "alive and sickly", somehow that snake ass Solar was able to prevent it! The proof's in the pudding my man...watch the video Guru's nephew put up a few weeks ago, then watch that shit sammich of an interview So-liar gave. After you watch both of those, come back and tell us all which one of em sounds the most sincere to you...don't worry, we'll wait... http://realityreport-mlittle.blogspot.com "Read between the lines, and question EVERYTHING." -- MalcolmLittle

  • Defy

    That dude is seriously bogus. He basically said that Guru wanted nothing to go to Premo when he passed because Guru was worried that Premo would take advantage of what Guru had accomplished and misrepresent it. That's some whack-ass b.s. Primo's credibility is SOLID in hip hop. He stands on his own two. He'd have absolutely no reason whatsoever to use what Guru has done for his own ends. And even if he did, he'd only bless it anyway. Fah-Q Solar! Much love to Guru and R-E-S-P-E-C-T to Premo. Peace.

  • Black Admiral

    props to Sway for asking what we all were thinking.....wish the Guru's legacy wasn't tainted by this azzhole..But it sounds even more suspect now I hear this dude...what we all need to do is pray for the Elam family and never mention this dude again

It's a nice and free place for Younger- Women and Older Men, or Older Women and Younger Men, to- interact with each other. Maybe you wanna check out or- tell your friends

  • kpanilaryea28

    yo no disrespect to guru but i've been thinking. this might be a lil far fetched but... what if premier found out that guru was "involved" with solar and that was the reason they parted ways. if you read you will see that guru met solar in 2002 thats a year before the ownerz dropped. what if guru and solar hit it off and primo found out and confronted guru and guru got mad and didnt want anything to do wit primo. maybe primo had so much love for guru to the point he didnt wanna ruin gurus rep and decided to keep quiet on the whole issue. this could explain why the two are always secret about what went down because they both know that it could have ruined gurus career. usually if it was any kind of regular fued beef or business matter, most people would have been said something by now. i've been thinking very hard at this and to me it could i mean 'could" be a possiblity? after watching that special cnn had a few years back about gay black men, yo i dont rule anybody out now, even rappers. many are living secret lives. regardless if he were i still respect him as an artist and love gangstarr just as much as ever.

    • kpanilaryea28

      and if you actually think that all rappers are straight hardcore heterosexuals you are a godamn idiot because there has gotta be some out there who are undercover its just too many rappers out there for them all to be straight

    • kpanilaryea28

      actually u stupid fuck it has nothing to do with being gay i've taken classes in school where you had to assess situations and piece together events so why dont you go listen to some fuckin gucci mane u fuckin scrotum ball!

    • ingenting

      Wow, you're a a faggot for coming up with some bullshit like that. I heard Solar's single now, you should make your move.

  • dcollin4444

    Solar is real suspect...but here's the deal, he is so adimant about the falling out of Guru & Premier's relationship. I think DJ Premier, once it is appropriate, should address why the falling out between he and Guru. Why the 7 years not doing work or anything of that nature. In other artists that worked together and parted ways (i.e. NWA/Ice Cube; Dr. Dre/Eazy-E; Dr. Dre/Suge Knight; Erick Sermon/Parrish Smith; Kurupt/Daz Dillinger; etc) you know whats up. I never heard any true "disgust" from Guru to Premier or vice versa. Premo, you need to set the record straight for Solar and all the fans...

      hey homie. premo released a statement either yesterday or the day before, i wish i had it for you but i honestly cant remember the page it was on (not dx)..but he said very sincerely that they actually parted ways on very good terms, and that it was for creative space. they had both been so focused on working with eachother premo really wanted to see what he could do with his beats, and guru wanted to see what he could do with other producers. sad that this bitch solar was the antidote.

  • YES

    Solar 1 lyin a$$ MOFO... In 2nd part he said that Guru was always paranoid about Premo and "Others" trying to use him yet, in the 3rd part he tells sway there was "never any tension" until "near the end" Make up your mind buddy

  • Solar Wind

    disgrace of a man

  • Me002

    Why is Sway even giving him his 15 minutes? First he said that Guru wrote the letter but if he was in a coma since February and passed away, it must have been one hell of a miracle for him to sit up and write a mean spirited letter and then let Solar edit the letter the way he felt he needed to, Solar.....you stupid.

  • Soulful Beats

    Wow, just saw the interview on WorldStar and dude definitely sounds suspect. Why would Guru be so pissed at Premo that he didn't want to have his name associated with him and entrust everything, including his son to Solar over his own family? Something definitely ain't stirring the kool aid on this one. Dude licking his finger in the interview and stuttering, damn, something definitely ain't right about this cat and everything he's saying.

  • PrinceMAl

    YO the bama is a fraud... You cant go to your boys funeral because Primo will confront you and all the Elam family. HE Quote " I wrote the rest that Guru couldn't pen himself because of his ailing disability". So he basically interpreted whatever he wanted to think guru would say. That's messed up... PLUS where is the other notes you holding onto SOLAR!!!! why you holding onto to it.. PUUT it out there so you can clear yourself.... The nigga at this point stands as a Fraud, and he is Messing with Guru's Legacy.

  • I'm at work and bored

  • I'm at work and bored

    "unsure if he'll attend the funeral." This fucker. yeah, i wonder why. He'll never leave that funeral alive fucking bitch. Wait til Bumpy Knucks get a hold of this piece of shit. Solar will be the only "EX-DJ"

  • DmIzE

    not helping with the funeral and not even going period?? i dont care what solar or anyone else said... if hes not going to the funureal that speaks volumes right there....

    Very suspect...how he can now leave the burial responisibilities to Guru's family is a mystery to me; considering he claims Guru wanted nothing to do with his family. Plus he doesnt plan to attend his dear friends relationship?...something rotten in Denmark

  • Mu

    I agree with Joel, you guys need to chill out! From what I have observed, Solar and Guru were extremely close. Solar was like family to Guru, you can't deny this. I think Guru simply wanted to distance himself from DJ Premier to be recognised not as half of Gangstarr but as the hip hop jazz pioneer. He wanted his name to stand by itself, as someone who had revolutionalise the hip hop and the jazz. He was very proud of his Jazzmatazz albums. You don't know what relationship he had with Premier after their separation, and you don't know the relationship he had with his family either, so you are speculating way too much. Let's just let time take care of things. Guru said he had instructed lawyers to enforce some things. He has given the guard of his beloved son to Solar. That must mean something. Solar did not have the genious of Guru, but he was his friend, and so for that, he deserves respect. And I wanted to conclude this by saying how sad I am, Guru, that you have passed away. I remember seeing you at the Jazz Cafe in London, the 21st June 2007. It was madness, I had such a good time. By the end of the concert, we were just like amateurs rappers, shouting 'that's the real shit'! I will miss your beautiful voice and incredible charisma, you were one of a kind Guru. Repose en paix Muriel

    • Two-Six

      Guru always wanted to be bigger than he was, just didn't realize how big he really was. He will always be known for Gangstarr & Jazzmtazz (Not Jazzmatazz 4!!), and that's that. This ex-super.. what the fuck you wanna call it is finished, 7 grand will fold 'that dude' is already kicked out of hiphop. So, bump Gangstarr & Jazzmatazz (1,2, &3) & be aight with the sour taste in our mouths because there will be no album # 7 from Goo & Preem. Wait a minute... Preem still got unreleased shit on tuck, there WILL be another... :)

    All respect to Guru and I don't really want to bring it up, but from the moment he was in the hospital a few months ago and the Solar cat wouldn't let the family see him, the first thing I thought was that there was something strange about their relationship.

    why does Sway have to ask if Guru was gay on TV the day after he died? Have some respect and hold off perpetuating rumors for now

  • ImFromDaSouth 239/404

    Man, don't tell me these niggas was bumpn dick heads and shit!! Grown men don't playfight nigga!! Or wash each other asses, don't care how sick a nigga is!!

  • RJFMusic

    Solars career is offically over! No one will work with him ever again.

    ...when I first heard the news that Guru was in the hospital, I was shocked. then all this drama started to come out between Solar and the Elam fam, and then the sad passing of Guru, and I started to think that Guru and Solar WERE a couple, no way around it. I won't get into the clues, but I had a feeling they were together. and If it was true that they were indeed a couple, I don't care! Guru was a phenomenal MC, and that's what I'll remember him as. I just wish that the real truth would come out and we can all remember Guru as half of one of the best hip hop groups of all time, and not the man that Solar seems to want to keep a secret. the song "Mass Appeal" seems to have taken on a whole new life now. (smh) RIP Guru.

  • HIP HOP HISTORIAN

  • freshyboi

    HHDX you didnt even post the whole interview. go to http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshheNTEEqIRK7378hO1 for the 4:21 long version where he says shit like premier manipulating the situation to benefit himself???? get the fuck outta here solar, you are the only one who is trying to profit off this

  • buss

    dis trifling ass MF has the heart to come on a show and think that the majority of america will believe the bullshit that he fed Guru?? he needs to maybe go on Bill O'Reilly with this crap and maybe HE will beleive. Solar, you are one fag ass, trifling, crooked, deceitful, uncaring individual who, in my opinion fed off of Guru's magnificence in rhyme and now he is dead, you have the nerve to just give up everything! why? because he is not longer your finacier? Solar, do us all a favor and jump off the earth....you are a proverbial murderer!!! stay tuned for Solar to make the statement that Guru and him were indeed lovers for the tabloids to pay for his story.....BITCH!!

  • BROOKLYNDaPlanet

    SOLAR is a fake, fraud, front, and all the above. It's unfortunate that Guru's passing has come to this. Gu-rizzy is an icon in ever sense of the word, and to see this situation arise is f*king banananananas. I can't wait to see a news report that Solar was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds to the head... it's only a matter of time.

  • bushwick

    man i cant even watch this video, this shit got me much angry. solar, we stay lookin for you. u best drive through ny and not get out your car son

  • Shawn71

    If u listen to this dude he talks like they were in a relation although he denies it but it sound funny.Also he speaking about that man's life but he have sunglasses on and i feel it is because Sway can't look him in eye and tell if he was lying!! What is also funny he talks about Guru being his brother but the family has to take care of the funeral and he wants nothing to do with it !!WOW i hope my friends don't do me like that!!

  • Enlightened

    And what the fuck was that finger lick at 2:55 of the second part? LMAO This nigga is the weirdest. I bet he won't do an interview without the shades covering his eyes. And 40-something year old niggas dont play fight and wrestle nigga. Your body don't feel like that shit when you get grown and you drink and smoke and shit. Nigga we did that when we was teenagers. (I'm watching this as I comment) Damn, man. You had to help him bathe? Stop it nigga. Ain't no nigga gon' do that if y'all ain't "lovers." Don't no nigga want you seeing him naked unless he gay. You mean Guru didn't have access to know woman/women that could help him bathe. A nigga would go get a hood rat off the block before he would have his nigga lookin at him butt naked. And Sway is the illest on that interview shit. He sittin there smirkin at that nigga like "you know you lying nigga." But he still keep it professional at all times.

    • R.I.P. GURU

      CHECK THISLINK IT WILL TELL IT ALL THEY WAS LOVERS N SOLAR IS ONE BITCH ASS NIGGA THAT NEEDS TO GET MURKED HERES THE LINK http://bit.ly/cxRLVt

    • HRCMS

      Consign, its obvious that Solar is lying about a lot of shit, but I think it will come out that they were gay, that's probably why Guru was so distant with his family

    • chronwell

      Don't no nigga want you seeing him naked unless he gay. You mean Guru didn't have access to know woman/women that could help him bathe. ^ U Right! WOWW!! Im speechless...Still its Gang Starr 4ever! Guru 's words will live on.

  • big jc

    Man, i am thinking that the rumors about guru right. But hey he lived his life. I feel for all who had love for Keith Elam (guru). But watching it this he seems to be talking about his mate than his brother. Good rest your soul GURU.

  • JDD

    Solar is a piece of shit, all the while Guru was alive he wanted to conduct all his business for him, now he dies and says the funeral is on the family. This dude is a joke and this is a sad situation. I think Solar was abusing Guru and making him stay with him, afraid he would leave to be with a better producer. Solar knew that Guru would make better music with DJ PREMIER as he did in the past, so he brainwashed him that he was nothing without him. Solar is going to get what he deserves for all this lying about the letter. At first he said Guru wrote it, now he is saying that some of it was notes he kept. Yeah we don't believe you and you need to come clean about this. There is no way when a man is dying he would decide to speak ill of someone who he spent many years of his life with. Come on Guru was not still mad at DJ PREMIER, and he would love Premo to do benefits in the name of Gangstarr. This fuck SOLAR is afraid that he won't make money off of Guru anymore if PREMIER is the one putting these concerts for guru together. SOLAR IS A JOKE AND BOYCOTT ANY MATERIAL HE PUTS OUT TRYING TO MAKE MONEY OFF OF THE GREAT GURU! BUY THE GANGSTARR ALBUMS!

  • Illa

    First Guru wrote it now he assisted hmmm sounds like some shit to me..

    • Mr. D1

      what rapper you know is gonna write a "goodbye" letter and kick it off "I, [your name here],..." So much more I can say, but #FuckSolar seems to be the most fitting...and that will be THE LAST time u will see me state that name.

    • Bauce

      Solar is a ho. He had to renege on some of his words. Guru wrote "SOME" of it. Probably the first sentence

  • Mr. D1

    This shit rivaled a congressman who was caught cheating. Sun-dude...WHO ARE YOU FOOLIN? YOU HAVE ISSUES THAT ONLY YOU AND THE MOST HIGH CAN DEAL WITH. STRAIGHTEN ALL THAT OUT and come correct--FOR ONCE! If you value the legacy of "ya mans", DO HIM THAT JUSTICE. "Edited down..." man please. GIVE DIRECT QUOTES VERBATIM...don't give us the remix--lord knows u fux those up, too--GROSSLY!
