Some sad news to bring you today via Rockstar Games; Keith Elam a.k.a Guru of hip-hop outfit GangStarr, has passed away after a long battle with cancer. He was just 43 years old.
GTA3 players will also know him as the voice of 8-Ball, who has always been a popular character in the game.

All of us here at Rockstar were saddened to learn this morning of the news that Keith Elam, professionally known as Guru of Gang Starr, has succumbed to cancer after a long battle.

Guru was truly a hip-hop legend, one of the genre's greatest voices, and we are eternally grateful for his contributions to the Grand Theft Auto series as the character 8-Ball.

Our condolences to the entire Elam family, to our good friend and his long-time Gang Starr collaborator DJ Premier, and to everyone else who had the pleasure of knowing or working with the man.

Rest in peace.

R.I.P, his music was and still is fantastic and his 8 Ball character was one of my favourites in GTA3.

"I know a place on the edge of the Red Light District were we can lay low, but my hands are all messed up so you better drive brother." *Enters the car* to listen to Head Radio and the song Fade Away being played.

He will be missed. R.I.P.
