DJ Premier sat with MTV’s RapFix Live to speak on the untimely death of his Gang Starr partner Keith “Guru” Elam. During the interview he addresses the controversial “authentic” letter that Guru Solar wrote right before the passing and spoke on his private funeral and Gang Starr’s legacy.

“The letter didn’t exist, which I didn’t… I wasn’t worried about that anyway, “said Primo. “Even if he did write that letter, I know how he writes. I’ve been around this guy for 23 years. I know everything about him and I know his family real well and they’re down with me, they ride with me.”

“We had a private funeral with his remains there and [I] spoke at the funeral,” shared the prolific producer. “It was a lovely ceremony. I did everything from the heart off my head, which is how you’re supposed to do it.”
