Honing their skills for over 20 years, the duo is making a return to pay homage to their longtime friend and collaborator, the legendary Guru.

Now, Lil Dap has returned with partner Melachi The Nutcracker, enlisting the help of legendary hip-hop icons, Jeru The Damaja, Lord Jamar (Brand Nubian) and more, as well as some unreleased heat from former partner in rhyme Guru himself, to bring experience, perspective and their unique flavor to the game with their new album, G.U.R.U..
The group’s upcoming studio LP is a tribute to the movement that birthed hip-hop’s most celebrated MCs and is sure to be a must-have for true hip-hop heads.
