bestnom1000x50 Publishes The Complete Boston Phoenix-Brownman Interview About Guru and Solar


A few months ago, in reporting on the strange life and death of hip-hop deity Guru, I was fortunate to get an incredibly candid interview with Brownman, the acclaimed Canadian trumpeter who toured with Jazzmatazz toward the end of Guru's life and career.

Today, with permission from me and Brownman, posted the entire interview that fueled the latter part of my Phoenix cover story. There's a lot to digest, but it's a must-read for all Gang Starr fans.

Some time has passed since the initial hysteria surrounding Guru's departure, but, to their credit, is still marching forward in its mission to "Document Solar's Downfall. For Guru." Last month they had a particularly entertaining post about how the so-called "super producer" tried to screw the foster care system.

Nobody's invincible. No plan is fool-proof. We all must meet our Moment of Truth.

Rest In Peace Guru.
