Some breaking news from the hip hop world:

Gang Starr’s lead voice, Guru, suffered a heart attack this weekend.  The 43 year old is now in a coma.

Hip hop heads remember Guru for writing tracks like “Words I Manifest” and “Just To Get A Rep.” The Gang Starr duo included the equally legendary DJ Premier but the two parted ways back in 2004 due to creative differences.

Anyway, you likey?

That picture is killing you softly though, right?

Estelle’s new techno-friendly jam, “Freak,” is treadmill-worthy… or at the very least, it’s good for that hour you spend getting primped before you go out. The song is off her upcoming album, All of Me. Take a listen.
