Good News For Gang Starr Fans

MC Guru, who had been comatose after having a massive heart attack Sunday night, is recovering. Today he issued a statement to AllHipHop.com, saying "I am doing fine and I am recovering! I am weak though! Solar is the only person who has the accurate info on my situation. Any info from anybody else is false! I appreciate your well wishes and all the love!"

It is unclear whether this was a cut at his partner DJ Premier, who has been providing updates on Guru's condition through his Twitter feed. Solar tells AllHipHop.com that "Guru is resting (and) the doctors say that he will fully recover." Doctors performed surgery on the 43-year-old Guru on Tuesday.
