Group Home, Jeru Da Damaja Perform In Brooklyn
The week after one of their mentors passes, three former members of the Gang Starr Foundation share the same stage with Ghostface.This Thursday in Williamburg, Brooklyn, an event called The Heavy Sound is set to take place at the Warsaw venue. Although the Ghostface Killah-headlined event is also joined by Brand Nubian's Grand Puba, it should be noted that the Warsaw stage will be taken by three former members of the Gang Starr Foundation.
With Keith "Guru" Elam losing a battle with cancer a week ago today, this event marks the first public appearance by two of his former proteges. Brooklyn emcees Jeru Da Damaja, Lil Dap and Melachi The Nutcracker (Group Home) worked by both members of Gang Starr, Guru and DJ Premier on several of the duo's albums. Additionally, Guru and Premier worked extensively on The Sun Rises In The East and Wrath of The Math by Jeru and Livin' Proof by Group Home.
None of the three artists have spoken publicly about Guru to date. This event has not been billed to be a Gang Starr/Guru tribute to date.
