Revered rapper Guru released a statement to AllHipHop.com today (March 3) as he recovers from surgery after suffering a heart attack over the weekend.
Guru, born Keith Elam, was briefly comatose due to the heart attack. Doctors successfully operated on the 43-year-old MC on Tuesday (March 2).
“I am doing fine and I am recovering! I’m weak though,” Guru told AllHipHop.com in a statement today. “Solar 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!”
Guru and his family are asking for privacy as he recovers and stressed for fans to continue to send prayers, thoughts and love.
His partner Solar echoed Guru’s comments about the need for privacy but told fans the outlook is positive for the rapper.
Additionally, only Solar will have access to Guru and accurate information regarding the status of his health.
“Guru is resting and doing well after his surgery,” Solar told AllHipHop.com. “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!”
Solar can be reached by contacting a representative for his publicity firm, Yo-Pr.com.

For those who don’t know who this guy is, Young Guru has been Jay-Z’s sound engineer for more than 10 years and also he’s been one of the most important background figures of the whole Roc-A-Fella movement. But most importantly, he’s a very smart dude who knows music. He rarely does interviews, so this convo with Rap Radar‘s Elliot Wilson is a must see.
Guru speaks on many subjects: being Jay’s DJ for the current BP3 Tour, the process of creating the Blueprint 3 album, Jay’s status as a hip hop mogul and his alleged connections with the Illuminati, his wish to bring back the boom bap and scratch element to music, rumors about the infamous Oh Boy Roc-Dip Set drama, the situation with Gang Starr’s MC with the same name, etc.
Above is part 1, continue reading to watch the rest of the interview.
He’s a man with a hip hop pedigree, a DJ since the early ’90s, a British ex-pat living in New York who worked his way up to an album deal with then-cutting edge Elektra Records, for the underrated Here Comes The Fuzz. He’s the kind of guy who signs remarkable rap talent like Wale and Rhymefest to his own label, Allido, while producing for the likes of Lily Allen and Robbie Williams. He’s also the first person (that we know of) to officially remix Bob Dylan (we heard even the Rambling Man himself gave praise). And he still finds time to drop chart-topping albums like 2007’s The Version and working on a forthcoming album that he’s said is his best yet, The Business.
