Guru (rapper)

Guru is an alternative rapper, best known for his pioneering work in the fusion of jazz and rap. He got his start in Gang Starr and built up a sizable following by 1993, when he released his first solo album, Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1. The album featured collaborations Donald Byrd, N'Dea Davenport[?], MC Solaar and Roy Ayers[?], while his second LP, Jazzmatazz, Vol. 2: The New Reality[?], featured Ramsey Lewis[?], Branford Marsalis and Jamiroquai. Though the Jazzmatazz albums were commonly considered some of the best rap in the early 1990s, Guru's reputation suffered slightly with the mixed reviews of Streetsoul[?] (2000) and Baldhead Slick & Da Click[?] (2001).
