I'm a major fan of this guys music, shit caught me off guard this morning.

Every album this guy has put out is a lyrical MASTERPIECE. By The Throat, was personally one of the best albums of '09 for me. Many Faces Of Oliver Hart is one of the, if not, THE best albums that Rhymesayers ever put out. Underground classic.

RIP it's a real shame... =/

and BTW

fuck so-called 'wu-corp hiphop heads' tho not paying respect to one of the best rappers ever, a well known off the top freestyler with GREAT albums.... he deserves respect and recognition and his albums were all filler-free and bullshit-free...c'mon, u cannot be a hiphop head without knowing about Eyedea

from now I know the only hiphopheads [at least from more active hiphop shop members] on this site are in this thread [+DJ Methods & Bateman of course]

peace I'm out

What the fuck, 28 years old and he dies in his sleep?

Jesus.

A lot of people who routinely clowned on Rhymesayers will probably drop into this thread to say "RIP".

As people have said, it's sad when someone consistently turned out great albums, full of good lyrics, and they get dismissed.

And then you get these wu tang faggits dropping shitty albums like it's a bodily function, and people go ballistic when they make a slightly less shitty album.

I heard from a unreliable source that he died from the aftereffects of a car accident he had a few days ago. Like i said, an unreliable source so i can't confirm its true.

it said they are awaiting the toxicology results as the autopsy results shown no sign of trauma..

Many of the MC’s associates took to twitter today to express their condolences. “We lost our dear, beloved, genius brother Eyedea the other night,” fellow Rhymesayers MC Brother Ali wrote. “Tears and tears. I just can’t describe it.” “RIP Eyedea,” Immortal Technique wrote. “Goodbye my old friend.” El-P added, “Sad fucking day.”

The autopsy hasn't been concluded yet, but you don't die of natural causes at 28.

Anyone who's taken a real deep look into his music probably has a pretty good idea what happened.

"I've lost all faith in a world so full of hate. I don't fucking love music; I just use it to escape. I'm caught between wanting to punch someone in the face, and putting a bullet in my head to leave the human race. Everything takes its toll but there's no tolls I can take. I haven't yet found a good reason to be awake"

It's hard to imagine that he was still a teenager when he was winning those Scribble Jams and shit.

Here's probably my favorite battle of all time. Probably the only time I've ever seen Eyedea lose a battle, but who better to lose to than one of your best friends.

The autopsy hasn't been concluded yet,

The Ramsey County medical examiner's office conducted an autopsy and no trauma was found, said Don Gorrie, the office's chief investigator. The cause and manner of Larsen's death are pending toxicology tests, which could take six to eight weeks, he said.
