Legendary Guru passed away !

I would like to pay tribute to Mister Guru who has passed away on Monday April 19, 2010 after a long battle with cancer. He was 48 years old and he suffered a cardiac arrest in March and was in coma for a while . Guru alias Keith Edward Elam was an American emcee and member of the hip-hop duo Gang Starr, along with DJ Premier. He was born on July 17, 1961 in Roxbury, Massachusetts. The name Guru is a backronym that stands for Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal and the less-often used God is Universal.

Guru was a legend of hip hop and he was one of the most expressive rappers of the 1990s and a major figure in bridging hip-hop and jazz. He was known for his smooth delivery and socially conscious lyrics.

As a solo artist, Guru released four volumes of his “Jazzmatazz” series, the first of which, from 1993, was one of the most influential in the fleeting jazz-rap movement of the day.

Now let’s discover one of my favorite Guru jazz song.

The world has lost one of the best MCs and hip-hop icons of all time .
Rest in peace.

This is It

Hello everybody !

Sorry for my absence but I was very very busy during these 3 months with my engineering final report. Now I am back to give you a new post talking about the king of Pop : Mister Micheal Jackson. I have recently seen the American documentary concert film directed by Kenny Ortega who shows us the rehearsals and the preparation of the concert series scheduled to start on July 13, 2009, but canceled due to the king’s death eighteen days prior to the show, on June 25. Like I said this film depicts Micheal Jackson rehearsing his musical hits, directing his team, and additional behind the scenes footage including dancer auditions and costume design. I am very impressed by the concert organisation and Michael Jackson’s quality of performance despite his health and his old age. For the first time ever, I saw Michael as I have never seen him before with an incredible determination to make it the greatest concert of all time. The atmosphere was lit with fireworks all around. There was a raised platform on which Micheal would stand and hover over the crowd of his followers below. To conclude I will never forget this person who left an impression on me during my childhood.

Thank you very much…
Rest in Peace
