Ex-partner says gracious goodbye to rapper Guru

The Associated Press, Wednesday, April 21, 2010, 7:49pm (PDT)

NEW YORK (AP) -- The former partner of rapper Guru has bid a gracious goodbye to his one-time Gang Starr sidekick, despite a deathbed letter from Guru that dismissed their friendship.

Guru died Monday of cancer at age 47.

Producer DJ Premier issued a farewell statement Wednesday, following Guru's posthumous online proclamation, which said that he didn't wish for DJ Premier to have anything to do with his name.

DJ Premier responded to Guru by saying, "Our time together was beautiful, we built a Hip Hop legacy together, and no one can rewrite history or take away my love for him."

DJ Premier continued: "It was a sad day for me to get confirmation on the death of man who I will continue to call my brother."
