Guru was without question one of the most influential and significant emcees of all. He blessed planet rock with some of the finest tunes out there. Here is a mix by Mister Cee paying tribute to the legend:
DJ Form from Pseudo Slang (Fat Beats) had a link to this on his FB page recently. It is a tune I had never heard before and is FUNKY AS KCUFFFF!!!!
Form is knee deep in beats and one of the reasons Pseudo Slang make such funky ass music. Keep and eye out for them as it is likely they will be in a town near you very soon.
(note to promoters, they are available for bookings now...contact info below.)
So far they have gigs lined up with legends like Masta Ace, Marco Polo, Rah Digga and many more.
You can hear the knowledge and crate diggin experience clearly in their tunes.

Pseudo Slang is Emcee Sick and touring compadre Dj Form as well as Tone Atlas, DJ Cutler, Gangsta D and contributing members DJ Tommee, Daringer, Mysterious L, A.L. Third + more. Based in Buffalo and Chicago Pseudo Slang have been closely followed for almost a decade garnering international praise for creating a fresh sound that steps outside of contemporary rap’s confines. PS released their debut “Catalogue” October 2004 under the umbrella of Baby Steps Hip Hop which was then operating as a record label. The Catalogue was compilation of tracks recorded between 1999-2004, and due to the excitement it generated the group subsequently signed with Brooklyn-based indie-major Fat Beats Records in August 2005. Fat Beats then released Pseudo Slang “Broke & Copascetic” (12” Vinyl single) which sold over 2500 units worldwide, and then to hold fans over the Slangers released “Thank God It’s Not Another Mixtape” (2006, EP on CD) which has created yet more buzz. Pseudo Slang have completed four 30+ City US Tours, and toured Canada and Europe. The new album “We’ll Keep Looking” is essentially a debut release for Pseudo Slang on the international heavyweight status which Fat Beats commands, and the buzz is already pinning the meters around the globe. An exclusive version of the album also was released in Japan in April 2009. -- Pseudo Slang Information ... Bookings: firstname.lastname@example.org Web: email@example.com http://www.pseudo-slang.com
