Guru Awakens From Coma and Releases Statement
The 43-year-old Boston-born rapper slipped into a coma, but was successfully operated on Tuesday, March 2.
In his statement, which was only a couple of sentences, Guru confirmed that he is making a recovery, and that his sole representative will continue to be his producer/partner Solar, rather than his legendary Gang Starr partner, DJ Premier.
"I am doing fine and I am recovering! I'm weak though," Guru said. "Solar is the only person who has the accurate info on my situation. Any info from anybody else is false! I appreciate your well wishes and all the love!"
Solar echoed Guru's sentiments, saying "Guru is resting and doing well after his surgery. The doctors say that he will fully recover from his illness. We thank everyone who send prayers our way and we appreciate the outpouring of love from around the world!"
While it seems a bit odd that Guru's first public statement about his health would include a disclaimer and reference to Solar as the sole source of information regarding his health, we're very glad to hear that he's conscious and that his surgery was successful.
