With tomorrow marking three years since Guru‘s untimely passing, Marco Polo rounds up his Gang Starr partner DJ Premier and Talib Kweli for this tribute track, “G.U.R.U.” What’s more, it’s the lead single from Marco’s PA2: The Director’s Cut album (out July), which will also feature Organized Konfusion, Styles P, Inspectah Deck, Large Professor and Posdnuos.

Tomorrow marks the three-year anniversary of the passing of the legendary G.U.R.U. of Gang Starr. I decided to this leak this record one day early to ensure DJ’s and everyone can have it ready for his anniversary and it can be played tomorrow. This is one of the most important records I’ve ever been a part of. Thank you to Talib Kweli and DJ Premier for being a part of this incredible record! We will also be premiering the “G.U.R.U.” video very soon (which is directed by Todd Angkasuwan) so stay tuned. Please help share this record and celebrate the life of an artist who influenced myself and so many others in Hip-Hop and music period! R.I.P. Keith Edward Elam aka G.U.R.U. (Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal)! – Marco Polo
