Gurus solo project is a stunning success that evokes an array of thoughts and emotions. Its a true Hip-Hop album and Guru & Solars appreciation for the culture and the art form shines through on each track. Guests including Doo Wop, Jaguar Wright, Jean Grae, Styles P, B Real and Talib Kweli all make appearances on Street Scriptures. The first single, Step In The Arena Pt. 2 featuring mixtape king Doo Wop is hip-hop at its best with Guru once again displaying his skills on the mic and riding the track with his trademark voice.

Guru first rose to prominence as the lyrical half of Gang Starr, one of the first groups to incorporate jazz with hip-hop. After three albums, Guru launched what would be the beginning of a major solo career with Jazzmatazz Vol. 1. Guru has had the chance to collaborate with some of musics greats over the years including Roy Ayers, Donald Byrd, NDea Davenport, Branford Marsalis, Chaka Khan, Isaac Hayes and many more. Gurus journey in the music industry is one long ride that wont be forgotten. He has become a true legend and has one of the most distinguishable rhyming voices out.

After more than 10 years and 10 albums in the music industry Guru has been able to stay relevant in the changing climate of todays music. When asked how he has maintained his relevancy, Guru said, Be honest with yourself, be original, be open to criticism, and be careful not to surround yourself with yes men. So prepare yourself for a lyrical voyage with Guru Version 7.0 The Street Scriptures.
