Guru/DJ Premier

After years of creative differences, the iconic New York duo went on hiatus after their 2003 album The Ownerz. Prospects for a reunion looked even grimmer when Guru said in a 2009 interview, "I am Gang Starr...Gang Starr is me." To make matters worse, when Guru passed away in 2010, his business partner Solar released a letter, purportedly written by Guru, that distanced him even further from his Gang Starr homie. However, many of Guru's family and friends claim that Solar forged the letter.
