R.I.P. Mikey

Exactly one month from now marks the one-year anniversary of the death of one of my favorite musicians, Michael "Eyedea" Larsen.

Michael was a lyrical prodigy who won such events as Scribble Jam and Blaze Battle when he was only 18 years old. He was an artist in its truest sense, and spent his life dedicated to his music, friends, and fans. His songs frequently consisted of either philosophical concepts of reality or the emotional struggles with life and love we all bear.  He did so with such profound lucidity that anyone who listens to his songs can easily tell that they were poured straight from his soul. After the release of his latest album with collaborator and long time friend, DJ Abilities, he experienced a rise in popularity for his unique blend of rock and hip-hop. This increase in recognition seemed to be the start of a new age for Eyedea, as well as those in the Rhymesayers label.

Yet, on October 16, 2010, Michael lost a lifelong battle against insomnia, and was found dead in his apartment by his mother. He was 28 years old.

Following this are some videos of Eyedea:

This is Eyedea making some feeble rap-battler his bitch

He goes on to beat the living shit out of every rapper in the competition.

These are songs from Eyedea & Abilities first, second, and third album respectively.  Feel free to listen or dismiss. I honestly don't give a shit either way.

Music Music - First Born

Paradise - E&A

Smile - By The Throat

Rest in peace, Mikey. Your family, friends, and fans miss you terribly.
