QUOTE: Rockstar
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.

that really is sad, thinking that 8-ball is one of those epic characters in gta, as little as it was played. i hope r* says/does something about/with 8-ball in the next game, as to remember this actor and what he contributed to gta universe.

R.I.P.
