*An assortment of old-school rap stars will perform at a benefit concert this month for the son of late rapper Guru, who died from cancer on April 19.
Jeru The Damaja, Brand Nubian, Royal Flush, Black Sheep, Mic Geronimo, AG and others will hit stage on May 19 at New York hotspot Taj, located at 48 W21st between 5th & 6th Ave.
All proceeds from the event will be given directly to Guru’s son KC, said organizers, who confirmed DJ Premier has given his blessings for the tribute concert. Music will be provided by Guru’s longtime associate DJ Doo Wop, along with Ted Smooth & Lord Gang DJ Sureshot, according to Allhiphop.com.
Ralph McDaniels will be on hand to give a special video tribute to Guru during the event, which costs $10 to attend and has no guest list.
