Nujabes and Hip Hop Evangelism

I just figured out how to define myself "musically." No I can't play any instruments. Wish I could lol. However, I'm a hip hop evangelist. An evangelist by definition is an enthusiastic advocate. Anyone who really knows me knows that I love to find new music and "new" old music. Anyone who doesn't know me hears this and laughs out loud. Never judge a book by it's cover right? I love to analyze lyrics. I love to share awesome tracks. There's way to much BS out in the world and it's my duty to take the blinders off of people and enlighten them with good music. This epiphany comes to me on the day of the announcement (in US at least) of my favorite producer's death. Nujabes. There's so much emotion in Jun Seba's music that some songs I can't even listen to anymore. Thank you for the moments of serenity...the chances to escape. Thank you for clearing my mind and helping me to reflect. Thank you for forcing me to think about my experiences and decisions. Thank you for providing clarity when I needed to memorize tons of information for exams. You helped the information sink in and find its niche. I love the line "It's funny how the music put times in perspective, Add a soundtrack to your life and perfect it.." from Luv Sic part 3. Nujabes's music can easily be the soundtrack to my journey into adulthood. Some people stray from things that make them think & some flock to it. Thank you Nujabes for your beautiful contribution to the art of hiphop..Gone but never forgotten....
