"He'd best behave, or I'm a send him a wave // Of some shocking volts, he doesn't know what he's talking about // He's kicking off a bunch of crap so I'll be the judge of that // The boy lacks artistry, but still tries hard to be // An entertainer, but instead he's a waste of my time and your time..."

This same bassline was used for a certain 90s R&B hit featuring two obsolete Bad Boy artists. Continuing on with celebrating the Guru, Premo and the Gang Starr Foundation's legacy and music. In related news, down bottom you will find a link to DJ Premier's interview with Vibe, where he addresses a few issues that the World has been waiting to hear, and another link where Holar's baby mama speaks.

Vibe: How hurtful was it that one person could destroy someone’s legacy the way Solar has?

It hurts. But that’s based on the fact that none of the things being said are true. Just from the amount of work we have put in… We talking about almost 18 years. That’s a long time. If we didn’t make history, maybe I could deal with it a different way. But we made history together and he was alive to see it. Guru was able to get two gold albums; he was able to do the Jazzmatazz album. So everything that we gained makes you think, “You mean to tell me you are going to blow it all away and act like that’s not an important part of what made us who we are?” With a silly ass letter like that??? When you say ‘Ex-DJ’ where is my name at? Because there are two other DJ’s that was DJing with Guru besides me. There was Doo Wop and Shawn Ski, who was our backup DJ when I had to go back to college. He always held us down. Calling me the ex-DJ doesn’t mean anything to me. Why don’t you just say Christopher Martin?

DJ Premier Speaks With Vibe

DX: As a member of the press, often times, prior to an interview, Premier's name and Gang Starr were often not allowed to be mentioned at all. Did you know anything, as far as behind-closed-doors for the motives in that?

Tasha Denham: I definitely know that press was told, numerous times, not to speak on Gang Starr, not to ask questions on Gang Starr or Premier. And [press was told], that if they were to speak on it, the interview would pretty much be over. I know this because I was the one who told the press this a lot of times. I was required to prep people ahead of time, basically, on what questions were going to be acceptable, and that they wanted to focus on 7 Grand at the time, and whatever album at the time was coming out, and not on the past - it didn't matter. Again, I believe it all stemmed from...I think when Solar got into [the music industry], I feel that he thought it was just gonna take off like that. They were gonna have instant love around the world, instant fame, instant fortune from this label. I don't think he got the realities of quite how hard it was gonna be to overcome the legacy that [Gang Starr] had together. I think that his jealousy of both Premier and Guru's fame around the world - yeah, there's a lot of people who don't know who they are, but anybody who really knows Hip Hop, and especially in Europe and such, it's insane amounts of love and fame out there. Solar would go places and people would want Premier, they wouldn't want Solar. Not because they hated Solar, but because they didn't know Solar. They wanted the legendary Gang Starr, with its producer.

  • enjay.

    I think the Tasha Denham interview needs it's own post, cause I think it has really done more to illuminate what a fucking sleezeball Solar is than anything else I've read.

    Solar is a fraud. He will never get any respect from the hip hop community. Solar might as well crawl into a hole and die.

  • vP

    Fuck Solar!

  • BW

    that tasha article is crazy... FUCK Solar!

  • Mr843

    Can anyone who has been on Itunes recently tell me if they jacked up the prices for all the Gang Starr tracks before or after Guru died? If it was before, then cool, no problems wit it. But if they did it just because he died and the overlords of Itunes think they can make a quick buck off of this tragedy, then they all need to go eat a dick up til they hiccup.

  • Pete Rock

    Solar a jealous lil bitch. He gunna cry because nobody wanted to see him perform, oh well. RIP GURU

  • garrett

    Fuck a Solar. And fuck a iTunes, cop the hard copies

  • crackadon

    i read that interview Solar's baby mama did and it puts things out there. Solar would punch and beat Guru? why would Guru let him unless they were on the low? i did some research and this article is pretty eye-openning. Guru and Solar had a very suspect relationship and i had no idea about this whatsoever. i dont even know what to think, but it's all starting to make sense now. read her interview and peep this link: http://diaryofahollywoodstreetking.com/the-real-solar-guru-gang-starr-story-rip-guru/

    "Scandalous, money greed and lust
    In this trife life, there ain`t nobody you can trust
    Plus there`s no justice, it`s just us
    In fact, watchin` yo back it be must
    ...
    And jealous "SO-CALLED FRIENDS"`ll try to set you up
    It`s called betrayal"-Keith Elam

    Too much bein' said without me seein' stuff first hand, what I will say is that Solar is rude for sure, not only for how hes treated the Elam family, but I've witnessed it personally in 2008 when he snubbed me in a KC parking lot. The guy gets no respect in the game from me, and he will never have the legacy of Gangstarr no matter how much he wants it. His career is over with the death of Guru, his days of riding his heels are over, I hope he falls hard. I like many other people are in touch with the Elam family to see what is doing to be done. If you wanna support the memory of Keithy E. give your love and support to his family they need it. Word is born!
