Wie jetzt bekannt wurde, sind der Def Jux-Vorzeige-MC Mr.Lif, die Conscious-Rapper The Coup, DJ Big Wiz und die dazugehörige Crew am 2. Dezember schwer verunglückt. Ihr Bus überschlug sich, fing Feuer - zum Glück überlebten alle. Labelhead El-P äußert sich wie folgt zum Unfall:
"Approximately 40 miles outside of San Diego the tour bus that Mr. Lif, the Coup, DJ Big Wiz, Metro, and other friends of theirs were on flipped over and burst into flames. Miraculously, everyone managed to escape with their lives. There were injuries suffered in varying degrees ranging from minor to serious, but everyone is essentially OK and getting treated in various hospitals.
The bus and everything in the bus was destroyed in the fire. The most serious injuries were sustained by DJ Big Wiz, Zahra (friend and merch assistant to Mr. Lif), and SILK-E (The Coup). They are all being looked after now and beginning the process of recovery. Everyone else (Mr. Lif, Metro, the Coup) is battered but relatively unscathed. For obvious reasons, the tour will most likely not continue. Right now the dust has yet to completely settle, but once it does we will provide fans and friends who are concerned with info on how to reach out to the injured parties and express well wishes.
We are all incredibly grateful that our amazing friends and fellow musicians survived this serious event.
