The person responsible for hacking into producer Solar‘s Twitter page has explained the motivation for leaking alleged damaging information pertaining to his business and personal affairs.
Writing from Solar’s Twitter account, the hacker justified his leaks which included documents of alleged unpaid royalties, e-mails, and personal photographs of him.
“You people are hard to please lol… Let’s see how Solar interacts with the fans…Here is proof that Solar received all of Guru’s royalties: http://xs.to/image-C028_4BEAF7A1.jpg and http://xs.to/image-9A21_4BEAF7A1.jpg …it is really hard to expose every lie this guy has said cuz theres 2 much. but ill try my best to inform u the most i can …Jazzmattaz 1 (Before Solar): http://xs.to/image-59B7_4BEAFF9A.jpg Version 7.0 (With Solar): http://xs.to/image-D6FD_4BEAFF9A.jpg ….I’ve leaked this because i want to restore Guru‘s legacy. Solar is messing up his legacy and i can’t accept that! Out of respect for the Elam family, Guru’s friend and of course Guru i am going to leave it like it is. I did my job. I’ve leaked Solar’s email to let you people see what kind of snake this dude is. This dude didn’t gave a f*ck about Guru. Solar is a thief, liar and cheater to the highest degree. Yes, people like this do exist. And i’m sure he will have to face facts soon! Last but not least, i hope you respect my decision. Let’s celebrate Guru’s life! Thank you @Djdoowop for setting up the Guru concert! Thank you Village Voice, Thank you AllHipHop, Thank you Sohh, Thank you Twitter, Thank you Myspace, Thank you Solar’s wife Thank you everybody who helped me out! Too much to mention! And no, i am not giving Solar’s twitter back. It will be mine. For the record: I will be on this Twitter account!! Don’t worry, i am not going anywhere! I am not going to leak anymore, that’s all! But if you people receive funny replies for Solar or his wife on e-mail, please let me know, i’ll post them :). Love to hear what he thinks!” (Solar’s Twitter)
Reports of the hacking made headlines earlier this week.
The strange, sad saga that is the circus surrounding Guru’s death continues this week with the news that someone has hacked the e-mail accounts and Twitters of Solar and Guru, and is leaking private message that show the twisted relationship Guru and Solar had together. Among the revelations of the reams of e-mails released (and are still being released), Solar allegedly: abused Guru, prevented him from getting medical treatment and instead forced him to tour Europe, cut his family out of his life, forged his death letter and tried to use his imminent death to sell unreleased material.

Solar recently denied mistreating Guru while he was in a coma over the winter.
“Guru was cared for in the CCU at their highest level of care for a patient in his condition. I was at the hospital every day — some days numerous times to check on Guru,” Solar claimed. “He was always clean and well attended too. Guru was in a room equipped with around-the-clock video surveillance as well as hospital personnel. Premier’s visit can be easily verified. The hospital has a strict visiting policy which includes signing in to see a patient. The CCU has an even stricter policy which is very thoroughly enforced. They will most certainly ask what day this visit took place and what time did he visit to facilitate process. My people and I would never tolerate any mistreatment of Guru in any way, shape, or form. Did DJ Premier complain to the hospital authorities about what he claims he saw?! If so who were the hospital authority? [sic] What was their response?” (All Hip Hop)
This week, producer Havoc said the fans should focus on Guru’s legacy, not Solar.
The Queens icon is well-aware that fans have put blame on Guru’s post-2004 musical partner, Solar. “I hear everybody saying things against Solar, the dude that was with him in his final days, whateva-whateva – we can hold anger towards him, but that anger is just in vain if we don’t do something ourselves and hold our own memorial,” deduced Hav. “By me doing this interview and saying that, hopefully people will hear it and catch onto it and say, ‘You know what? That’s a good idea.’ I’m just tired of hearin’ everybody sh*t on Solar. ‘Cause you know what? F*ck him. I don’t know him personally, but let’s just do something for Guru.” (Hip Hop DX)
