*Rapper Guru, whose real name is Keith Elam, has released a statement regarding the heart attack that briefly rendered him comatose over the weekend.

“I am doing fine and I am recovering! I’m weak though,” Guru told AllHipHop.com in a statement today. “Solar is the only person who has the accurate info on my situation. Any info from anybody else is false! I appreciate your well wishes and all the love!”

As previously reported, doctors operated on the 43-year-old rapper Tuesday (March 2).

The artist and his family are now asking for privacy during his recovery and welcomed fans to continue sending prayers.

His partner Solar previously told Allhiphop.com: “Guru is resting and doing well after his surgery. The doctors say that he will fully recover from his illness. We thank everyone who send prayers our way and we appreciate the outpouring of love from around the world!”
