R.I.P Hip Hop Producer Nujabes (NOT an April Fools Joke…)

1 April 2010 No Comment


Hip-Hop producer & DJ Nujabes, one of my favorites (one of the few reasons why I started rhyming again in the first place), died in a car accident just a few short weeks ago. This is a tribute to him:

Nujabes was the owner of the Shibuya record stores, T Records and Guinness Records. He founded the independent label Hydeout Productions and was a major contributor to the soundtrack for the Japanese anime Samurai Champloo.

Embrace the inevitability of your own death and – knowing that it can happen at any time – live each moment to the fullest…

Me & El over that last track (get the mixtape free in the right sidebar):

Death is not the greatest loss of life. The
greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live…
