     After the news broke that Guru from Gang Starr died, many rappers took to their twitter to voice their reactions. Diddy called Guru a rap veteran and an icon in hip-hop. "RIP Guru! Hip-Hop lost an icon today-but u'll always be w/ us b/c Legends live on 4ever. Donate in his memory>http://www.eachonecounts.org/"

     Just Blaze questioned how Guru wrote the final statement that was put out if he was in a coma. "so guru had time to write this statement while he was in a coma/dying/dead?," Blaze wrote. "@JustBlaze yeh and strangely he seems to use the exact same phrases as his "brother, friend and partner" Solar does in his statement…. @JustBlaze And he felt it necessary to diss on Premo as his last words? I don't buy that sh*t. hope homie is enrolled in witness protection…@rachel1029 ive sat next to a few deathbeds.. and no ususally it is the exact opposite. man…"

     Q-Tip talked about how long Guru had been in the game. "From Allah we come to Allah we return. R.I.P. Keith GURU. A great man, poet, and I'm proud to say friend… 23 yrs. Damn!," he wrote. "Shouts out to my beatman crew. Large pro preemo peterock the beatminerz and da beatnuts."
