(AllHipHop News) Patricia Elam, sister of Gang Starr MC Guru, has allegedly forwarded the following letter to blogs in hopes that AllHipHop.com and other media outlets would release the information to fans of the late rapper.
The letter states that Guru, born Keith Elam, was comatose and remained unconscious from February this year until his death. The letter also disputes the legitimacy of any foundations purported to operate on Guru's behalf.
"The Elam family wishes to thank the fans of our son/brother/father uncle/nephew/cousin Keith aka GURU for the outpouring of love, concern and support.
Our hearts are broken by the loss of someone we loved so much. GURU was devoted to his young son, who will most keenly feel his absence.
