Nujabes

Jun Seba aka Nujabes (February 7, 1974 – February 26, 2010) was one of Japan's premier hip-hop artists, and has released 2 albums, 2003's Metaphorical Music and 2005's Modal Soul.

Both display a jazz-influenced sound that owes much to the heritage of Native Tongues and the invention of acts like RJD2, but stands in a sonic league all its own. Collaborations with Fat Jon, Five Deez, various Japanese rappers, and Terry Callier, along with appearances on the soundtrack to Japanese hip-hop anime series Samurai Champloo, have helped establish him as one of the most creative forces in leftfield hip-hop.

Nujabes was also owner of the Shibuya record stores, T Records and Guinness Records and founder of the independent label Hydeout Productions.

On February 26, 2010, Nujabes was involved in a traffic accident upon exiting the Shuto Expressway late at night. He died at a hospital in Shibuya Ward after failed efforts to revive him. He was 36 years old. There was a private burial with only family in attendance. Hydeout Productions has stated that Nujabes has left behind tracks, which they plan to release in the near future. « hide
