Marco Polo "G.U.R.U." feat. Talib Kweli & DJ Premier
Tomorrow marks the three year anniversary of the passing of the late great Keith Elam aka Guru from Gang Starr. To pay proper respect to this hip-hop legend, Marco Polo recruits Talib Kweli and the man Guru made innumerable classic tracks with, DJ Premier, for this tribute track “G.U.R.U.” (Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal, if you don’t know). The track also serves as the lead-single from Marco’s forthcoming LP, PA2: The Director’s Cut, which will drop this July via SoulSpazm Records. Says Marco: “Tomorrow marks the three-year anniversary of the passing of the legendary G.U.R.U. of Gang Starr. I decided to this leak this record one day early to ensure DJ’s and everyone can have it ready for his anniversary and it can be played tomorrow. This is one of the most important records I’ve ever been a part of.” Look for the official video to drop soon. PA2 will feature appearances from Organized Konfusion, Gangrene, Talib Kweli, DJ Premier, Masta Ace, Posdnuos (De La Soul), Kardinal Offishal, Styles P, Nature, Rah Digga, Slaine, Celph Titled, Ill Bill, Large Professor, Inspectah Deck, O.C. & more.
