RIP Eyedea

Just learned of the passing of Eyedea, a pillar of the Twin Cities rap scene and one half of Eyedea and Abilities. It was while living in Minneapolis that I really fell in love with hip hop. Eyedea was constantly performing and collaborating with other emcees, and was easily the best freestyle rapper I had ever seen. Thought I’d post some of his work for those who may have missed it:
