Nujabes, one of the most well known producers in the International Hip-Hop Community, Died in a car accident on February 26, 2010. Seba Jun was a very private man and though his death was more than a month ago, news of the loss has just arisen.http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474978112675
This guy created music that inspired me to open my arms, not just to hip-hop (A genre I once gave wide berth) but to many other genres of music I had previous decided I would not listen to nor like. His music taught me patience and expanded my tolerance for art of sound and the different interpretations people create and this poise, this optimism that if I just listen for a little longer I'll find something I like, spread from my taste in music to other aspects of my life.
He will be missed, honored, loved and never replaced. Rest in Peace, Nujabes.
That man gave so much to not just the hip hop community but to the music industry in general.
Rest in Peace, Seba Jun..
