    This is a real big hit to the hip-hop community, its movement and the MPLS scene in general. :(

    my alltime favorite rapper. RIP eyedea, hip hop has lost an amazing freestyler, a heart-wrenching story teller, and absurd lyricist. “some say that i’m crazy, others say i’m a genius, but they all say i’m a little on the weird side” Thoughts and prayers go out to Mike’s family and friends.

    This is sad news, I would like to dedicate this video to Eyedea because his music was so inspiring and I used his “Now” song in this video.

    Its sad to hear this. I used to work at Joe’s Crab Shack and my manager would always be listening to his “First Born” album. R.I.P. Eyedea.
