Nujabes (Jun Seba) R.I.P ... One Love

Today I heard from Eon that Nujabes passed away. I'm not feeling a hundred percent and the bad news made me feel worse. I then thought to myself about the impact Nujabes had on the independent hip hop community and how Nujabes legacy will live through all the individuals who were touched by his werk. I personally love to listen to Nujabes while I'm werking on an art project. Nujabes werk is inspirational, a positive energy flows through you body as it enters your ears.

The Japanese hip hop producer Nujabes passed on 26 February 2010.

We deeply regret the loss of a unique talent and a close friend. Through his soulful music, Nujabes has touched so many people around the world, even beyond his dreams. He was a mysterious character to most as he avoided the public limelight, rarely conducted interviews, so only a few got to know the man behind the signature production. Yet it continued to amaze me how young listeners of all backgrounds learned of his enigmatic name, and expressed support for his music. - Shing02
