In the wake of one-time Gang Starr rapper Guru’s death at the young age of 47, his latter day producer and partner Solar emerged as hip-hop’s most loathed villain, accused of everything from denying Guru’s family access to their dying kin to fabricating a deathbed statement from the rapper to starting a bogus charity in Guru’s name. This weekend, someone hacked into Solar’s AOL email account and posted a selection of messages via his also-hacked Twitter account. The anonymous hacker made public emails sent between Solar and various parties, including documents that seem to indicate that Solar is more evil than anyone could have even guessed. The emails appear to show that Solar forced Guru to tour instead of seeking medical help; that he controlled Guru’s access to his own email account and various other web presences; that Solar owed money to multiple parties; and, perhaps most chillingly, that Solar attempted to pimp out unreleased music from Guru after the rapper’s death.
