Saint Paul, Minnesota rapper Eyedea, real name Michael Larsen, was found dead at age 28 by his mother in his home on Saturday. A long-time member of Minneapolis-St. Paul indie hip-hop label/crew Rhymesayers, he made his name as a vicious battle rapper, as evidenced above (and after the jump), and as one half of the renowned duo Eyedea & Abilities. A tragic, as yet unexplained loss.
