Rest In Peace, Nujabes

I just caught word Japanese producer, Nujabes died in a car crash on February 26, 2010. Because of the producer’s personal and private lifestyle, many did not find out until just this week.

This is a very unfortunate loss for hiphop music, and certainly for the Japanese hiphop community. Homie was only 36; an extremely prolific and much admired producer.

I first heard Nujabes when he produced tracks for the Samurai Champloo anime. Specifically, the show’s intro featuring Shing02, “Battle Cry”:

Rest in peace, Nujabes. I’m glad he has left a huge amount of work for all of us to enjoy until the end of time. Peace, homie.
