Video: Fat Joe Talks Memorializing Guru on the DJ Premier-produced “I’m Gone”

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010


[via MTV]

It feels like Gang Starr is the purest group in hip-hop. They was shooting videos on the beach in the winter when the water was ice. Razor-blade music. A bunch of guys in front of the project steps. “Mass Appeal”, “Dwyck”, ‘Stick up kids just out to tax’ … It’s just so much, man. When Guru passed, and I’m hearing all these rumors, I just wanna kill everybody. I want to shoot the computer, cause I’m like, “No, this ain’t what we do when our legends, our icons, pass. We salute them. We don’t go for rumors; we salute these dudes.” He was an icon, man. It’s the purest group in hip-hop, in my opinion. DJ Premier, this guy is like a god, a walking god. Guru, he put it down legendary.

Preemo, I was waiting for Preemo to give me a “Ten Crack Commandments” or a shoot em up, bang bang. He sent me the beat when Guru died ā€” the day Guru died. It was a somber, sad beat. I knew where to go with it… I knew Preemo was hurting; I been through that with Pun. I knew how it felt. I had to pay homage and salute.

I told him “I been in this business 15 years and I never seen you do nothing.” … So he told me to do something and I said I wasn’t gonna do it. He told me “you better do it” and I told him “fuck you, suck my dick.” He said “no, fuck you. I’ll show you.” People ain’t understand what was going on behind the scenes. I had to give them the album [J.O.S.E. 2], cuz they gave me the money, or I’d have got sued.
