DX News Bits: Guru Tributes, Havoc Produces Eminem

The Heavy Sound at Warsaw in Williamsburg, Brooklyn gave the stage to Ghostface, Brand Nubian, Group Home, and Jeru Da Damaja the but it was also a great evening for fans of Guru. After the emcee’s recent passing, many of the acts that took the stage spoke on the Gang Starr emcee and the events surrounding his tragic death.

At one point in the evening, Brand Nubian members spoke on Guru’s associate saying “Fuck Solar.”

Jeru shared his thoughts on the whole situation with XXL.

“Guru is responsible for saving my life,” he said. “If it wasn’t for him I’d probably still be in the street. I get thousands of dollars a night to travel the world and have fun and do something I love, and I’ve been doing it for years. The Gang Starr legacy is gonna live on because I’m here, Premier is here, [Group Home's] Dap is here. And every time I get on the stage, whether somebody know it or they don’t know it, Guru is up in there. Always.”

In other news, Mobb Deep’s Havoc recently spoke about having a beat placed on the new Eminem project, Recovery.

“I been trying to get placement on an Eminem project for the past two years with no success at doing it ’cause you know they pretty picky over there and rightfully so,” he said. “So I almost landed a placement on [Relapse] but for whatever reason it didn’t happen. I was never mad, but my philosophy was keep hitting them ’til something [stuck],” he told XXL

The Havoc and Magnedo7 produced track will be on the album, one that is set to drop June 22 along with production from DJ Khalil, Just Blaze and Boi-1da.
