MC Supernatural at Urban Arts Fest

Jun Seba aka Nujabes, Rest in Peace

March 17th, 2010

Today, I have very somber news for the international hip hop community, especially fans of the independent hip hop scene, and those who have followed my career.

It has been announced that Jun Seba, aka Nujabes, Japanese hip hop producer extraordinaire, passed away late February. Official statement from the label (in Japanese) here:

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.

As I write now from Japan, I had been leaving him messages the past couple of weeks, trying to get in the studio together, so the news could not have come any more unexpected. Even last week, I passed by his house and called him thinking he was still home.

I met Nujabes around 2000 and as an upcoming MC, I was fortunate to work on tracks such as Battlecry, F.I.L.O, Luv(sic) parts 1, 2 and 3. We had been working on the next trilogy of Luv(sic) over the past year (which we're determined to see through). The last time we talked in January, Nujabes emailed me to wish Jeff Resurreccion, a 19-year old beatboxer who had just passed way from cancer, his heartfelt condolences.

While we continue to respect the privacy of his family, we will work to preserve his legacy, and pay tribute to the body of work, some unreleased, that he has left for us to enjoy. Jun Seba will be dearly missed by his family, friends, colleagues, and fans worldwide.

in peace,
"somewhere down the middle of the road,
I wanna see you again in a scene with the backdrop a perfect ten
and the music can take us back to the spot right then"
- luv(sic) part3

It's back! Urban Arts Festival is the very elusive Festival at UCI that has only been done once before back in 2006-2007. ASUCI and HIP HOP CONGRESS are proud to be bringing it back in 2010.

This year, Urban Arts Festival will be a mixture of many things. Get ready for open cyphers, sales of emerging fashion brands, an exclusive dance showcase, live and interactive entertainment, all topped off with a hip hop concert. We are calling all lovers of music, bboys, funk stylists, emcees, artists, djs, and anyone who just wants to experience the culture we all love at a more personal level.
