Just heard recent news about Nujabes‘ death from online sources nowpublic.com and gather.com. For those who don’t know, Nujabes – born Seba Jun – is a Hip Hop DJ and Producer from Japan and has worked with Hip Hop artists and provided beats for the anime series Samurai Champloo. It was confirmed he died in a car accident on February 26, 2010. Since Nujabes was a private person, no one found out about his death until it was publicized today by his friend and colleague Shing02. He was 36 years old. RIP Nujabes. Your music was an inspiration to a lot of people.
