'Super' Producer Solar: One Year On

By Ewen Ramsbottom | 20 April 2011
Solar: Eyes so full of humanity and love Solar: Eyes so full of humanity and love

So, it's one year to the day since the tragic passing of Guru, an MC so beloved of the underground hip-hop community. There are still so many unanswered questions about the circumstances surrounding his death, but one question stands tall above them all - how the fuck is 'Super' 'Producer' Solar still alive???

The allegations towards Solar in terms of how he treated and controlled Guru in the last years of his life, and then abused his memory by trying to cheat him out of his finances following his death, have been well documented. And there's no better source to read up on Solar's various misdemeanours than on the visionary site http://www.fucksolar.com. 

Just to recap on the basics though, Solar hooked up with Guru following his split with DJ Premier in the early 00s, which effectively marked the dissolution of the legendary Gang Starr. Using what many assume to be some form of sinister mind control over Guru at a very vulnerable time in the MC's life, (alcoholism, depression, self-doubt,) Solar set himself up as a kind of self-appointed 'healer' and 'teacher' to Guru, (or 'God', as Solar has frequently referred to himself.)

Solar - or John Mosher to give him his real name -  invented the term 'Super Producer' for himself, and persuaded Guru to continue his (until then) highly acclaimed series of Jazzmatazz albums, with Mosher on the production. Guru's fans immediately began to perceive a decline in the standards of his music. Other strange things were happening. Guru no longer gave interviews or made any public appearances without Mosher by his side. In many cases, Mosher answered Guru's questions for him, and cut interviews and shows short on a whim. Fans commented that Guru appeared increasingly withdrawn, vacant, thin, and ultimately ill. 

Guru died alone in hospital amidst reports that his fingernails and toenails had been allowed to grow to unfeasible lengths, and that a clumped afro now appeared on his usually slick-shaven head. This despite claims from Mosher that he had been 'looking after' his 'brother' Guru. Most shockingly, Mosher had seemingly convinced Guru to sign over complete control of his personal and business affairs to 'the God', to the point that Mosher prevented Guru's own family from visiting him in hospital. 

In the ensuing months, reports emerged of Mosher attempting to embezzle hundreds of thousands of dollars out of Guru's various business interests, of using Guru's social media accounts to chat up and arrange sex with women, (despite being married,) and of making exaggerated, self-aggrandising claims about his own status as Guru's 'saviour'. 

What a guy. 

As fucksolar.com has documented continually, many, if not most of Mosher's business dealings undertaken in Guru's name have been fraudulent and illegal. Yet the world still awaits for any kind of action to be taken. What the hell is going on here? How is Mosher getting away with it? 

It's astounding enough that Mosher's not killed himself given the weight of hate being directed his way as his dire deeds get further exposed. That aside, he's damn lucky a vigilante mob haven't caught up with him yet. Instead, Mosher displays a dumbfounding mix of narcissistic arrogance and pure dumb stupidity by responding to anything that's written about him on-line, usually trying to pass himself off as some supportive fictitious third party. And from what he writes, it's clear that he doesn't have a shred of conscience about what he's done, and is in complete self-denial. He still clearly labours under the monumental delusion that he has any kind of future in the music business, and that any artist would ever want to work with him again.

Oh, and his ignorant uneducated ass can't spell or punctuate for shit. 

We can only hope that, as the evidence continues to stack up, Mosher will in time be brought to justice for his crimes. Guru deserves that. 

In the words of Guru himself on the Gang Starr track 'Moment Of Truth'. 

'Just as you get what's coming to you,

Everybody else is gonna get theirs too."

 

We await...
