Patricia Elam: Guru Never Regained Consciousness After February Coma; Did Not Start Foundation

Gang Starr Guru (Death)Following the frenzy of accusations regarding producer Solar’s role in the letter that was purportedly left by legendary rapper Guru on his deathbed, the sister of the Gang Starr MC has released a letter that claims Guru, real name Keith Elam, never recovered consciousness following his coma in February, reports The Source.

“GURU was in a coma from mid February until his death and never regained consciousness,” the letter from Patricia Elam reads.

The statement comes as a direct counter to Solar’s recent statements, in which he told MTV’s Sway that rumors regarding his supposed involvement in the letter were incorrect. The letter came, “from his own mouth,” Solar tweeted regarding the rumors.

In addition, Guru’s supposed connection to the charitable foundation Each One Counts has been drawn into question. “I have a non-profit organization called Each One Counts dedicated to carrying on my charitable work on behalf of abused and disadvantaged children from around the world and also to educate and research a cure for this terrible disease that took my life,” reads the letter supposedly written by the rapper from his deathbed.

While the letter itself does not imply that Guru necessarily started the organization, Solar says that he was in fact involved, telling Sway, “That’s an organization that was started by Guru, myself and my people.”

But, Patricia Elam disagrees. “The family is not aware of any foundations established by Guru,” her letter states.

In addition, Guru’s name does not appear to be associated with either of two organizations registered under the names Each One Counts Foundation, Inc. and Each One Counts, Inc., reports Birthplace Magazine. The publication, which urges readers not to donate to any specific organization until Guru’s relationship with the charities is more clear, reports that upon investigation, neither Keith Elam nor Solar appear to be associated in anyway with the organizations on an executive level.

Any connection between Guru and either of the two organizations remains muddied.
