Guru’s sister, Patricia Elam, spoke with MTV news and revealed more details regarding Guru’s passing and Solar’s attempts to control the flow of information regarding the health of her brother, claiming Solar did not inform them about his death.

[My son] Justin found out on the Internet and called me. I had to call my dad,” Patricia told MTV News. “[Keith's 9-year-old son] KC found out riding in the car, hearing it on the radio. That’s not right if you care about someone. That’s not how you treat them. My brother would never have wanted us to find out that way. Never in a million years. Especially his son. Come on, now.”

She also added that Guru’s body was sent to be cremated, before any family members could weigh in on the decision – one solely made by Solar.

“The hospital released the body in [Solar's] care. I don’t know how it was determined what funeral home it would go to,” Patricia explained. “My son Justin was looking online and saw something that the body was going to be cremated. My father was calling the hospital looking for the body and they were like, ‘We released it to the health-care proxy.’ Luckily my other brother happened to be in New York on something unrelated and he started calling funeral homes in the area, if you can imagine. Fortunately the third one he called was the right one. He said, ‘Listen, I’m the brother of Keith Elam, do not release that body to anyone but me.’ Thankfully he was able to get there in time.” [Source: MTV]

    I was lucky to see Guru live at a small venue (Apache Cafe) in Atlanta a year or two ago. Crowd was hype. Music was great. For those of you that didn’t know, he went to Morehouse College here in Atlanta so he had some peeps there as well. Yes of course, asshole Solar was there. No one knew who he was or anything. He just kept yelling out “7 grand records” and your basic hype man duties, trying to get the crowd hype. He was a complete asshole though because he would get mad when the crowd wasn’t as hype as he wanted them to be. Everyone thought he was a straight jerk. RIP Guru. Solar, you got whats coming to you.
