Rap duo Guru and DJ Solar have just recently announced their plans to release a new album in 2009 entitled Guru 8.0 Lost and Found. The two Hip Hop acts are accustomed to working together to produce music, as their previous collaborations have resulted in two albums: Version 7.0: The Street Scriptures, Jazzmatazz Vol. 4, and the mixtape "The Timebomb: Back To The Future ," which received rave reviews.

Following the infamous and still talked about split of Gang Starr, which was made up of producer DJ Premier and rapper Guru, the latter artist went on to form the record label 7 Grand with his current partner in crime DJ Solar.

With the new album prepping for release, Guru is quick to a**ure fans that Guru 8.0 will not follow the same format as his Jazzmatazz series.

“This is not Hip Hop jazz, this is straight Hip Hop,” Guru explained. “So, lyrically you're going to have that straight Hip Hop element.”

Although Guru has been popular since the late ‘80's, Solar ensured that Guru's time in the game actually works as an advantage for him. He also said that Guru's ability to stay relevant to Hip Hop is “something above and beyond what men half his age are able to accomplish.”

Guru has expressed confidence in his upcoming work, boldly stating, “The concept of real Hip Hop had gotten lost. But now it is found again on this record.”

Guru 8.0 Lost and Found is slated for release in March of 2009.
