Rap Bus Fire

(CMJ) Lif, Coup And Wiz Escape Burning Bus About an hour after their departure from San Diego, the tour bus carrying Mr. Lif, the Coup, DJ Big Wiz, Metro and friends tumbled across the highway and burst into flames. According to a statement on the Definitive Jux website, the hip-hop troubadours and their tour buddies have suffered injuries, but astonishingly, everyone aboard is "essentially OK."

DJ Big Wiz, SILK-E of the Coup and their friend/merch man Zarha were the most seriously injured by the crash. Each of them is receiving proper care and beginning recovery. The rest of the crew escaped from the bus "battered, but relatively unscathed." The tour bus and everything inside was destroyed during the fire. Though they have not made an official announcement, Def Jux has indicated that at least the majority of the remaining dates will be canceled due to the unfortunate accident. As the artists continue to recover from the crash, the label will provide fans with continued updates on the situation. [see full story for more] - Click here for the Full Story
