Rumors Following Madlib and Oh No’s Dad’s Unexpected Death
With great sadness, on Sunday (May 1, 2022), members of Stones Throw Records reported the heartbreaking news of Madlib and Oh No’s dad’s death after Otis Jackson passed away on April 13, 2022, at the age of 77.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the two brothers and their loved ones and may Otis Jackson rest in peace.
Egon, who established reissue imprint Now-Again Records in 2002, confirmed the tragic death news announcing that the kind father took his last breath just seven days before what would have been his 78th birthday.
Although Madlib hasn’t reacted to the tragedy publically at this time, Oh No reposted a statement from Egon, who worked as general manager of the record label for 11 years; the statement read, “I knew him nearly as long as I’ve known Madlib and Oh No, and any that know the brothers, and so many of their compatriots, know that they got their start in music because of Otis’s, and his wife Sinesca’s, belief in their musical excellence.”
Egon added, “He should be one to know – he was a soul singer of high regard, the kind of singer who even impressed the great David Axelrod, who, in our first meeting, was effusive in his praise for Madlib’s dad.”

In a 2007 interview with Wax Poetics, the younger son, Oh No, remembered Jackson’s musical teachings, saying, “Growing up, my brother and I were in the lab the whole time. And our father was real strict about us not clowning around when it came to music.”
Our team does not confirm any rumors about his death, but you can be sure that we are trying our best to find related information about the tragedy and provide the latest updates as soon as possible; but, do not forget that family privacy should be respected.
He continued, “There were always cats jamming in the studio, and my father made sure we were always there and well behaved. I was only like five years old then, but I remember funk being played 24-7.”
Egon, after Madlib and Oh No’s dad’s death, stated that he’ll be publishing a collection of Jackson’s rare singles into an album, which will be out sometime next year. The Now-Again Records founder additionally teased an excerpt of the album’s liner notes from author, music journalist, and DJ, Jeff Mao.

RIP Mr. Jackson! This Gentleman here was the 1st meaning of support for me! He was my (Equalizer) “This ain’t yo house, Get yo feet off my couch Jack, but make yourself at home but realize this ain’t your home so respect my shit!” Lol, I didn’t get that till later in life. Always kept it 💯 & that helped shape the man I am today with my kids @mskianarae & @milesbrown. He wasn’t my father but gave guidance as a father figure would do. He was there when Lootpack was first formed. He was our first manager as our crew CDP was developing. He and Mrs. Jackson(RIP) were both there when I decided to propose to my wife @cyndeebrown. I witnessed how he supported his sons @ohnothedisrupt & @madlib as we jumped into HIP-HOP. For that, I will always be thankful. May you rest in Heaven Mr. Jackson. Condolences to the Jackson family.
