Obvious comparison, but when Dilla died he was already well known and his entire life has been documented and analysed for days. Nujabes though - I'm a massive fan of this dude, yet I know next to nothing about him. I've searched and I've never seen or even heard of any interview with him (even in japanese)... only ever heard of him doing about 2 live shows ever and there's literally about 3 photos of the guy on the whole of the internet.
Just thinking about it, the only thing people know is his real name... and his music.
And this dude genuinely changed my life.
And then it's actually like 3 weeks ago that he died. Without the internet you wouldn't even know... then again without the internet most fans wouldn't know about him to start with.
That's deep man, damn.
Whether it was by his personal choice or not, it's a shame that there isn't more out there to look through about his thoughts on music, life, etc. I hope he has some kind of hidden tape collection at his studio that Pase finds (like Tupac). 'Cause I just don't want it to end.
Actually a big thank you to the people on this board who mentioned him, 'cause this board is what introduced me to Hydeout Productions.
