News: Eyedea Passes Away At The Age Of 28

Longtime underground, indie and battle rhymer Michael "Eyedea" Larsen was found dead this morning by his mother Kathy Averill...

The 28 year old Larsen was a former fixture on the Rhymesayers label and personally I remember first encountering his skills as I watched the Blaze Battle some years ago....

Averill took to her Facebook page and left the following statement:

“It is with great pain and sadness that I tell you my son Mikey (Eyedea) has passed away. At this time we kindly request your respect and our privacy as we process this devastating loss. We do, however, welcome your kind words, memories, and positive thoughts.”

Larsen was only a month shy of his 29th birthday. Eyedea's family has started a Memorial fund in wake of this terrible tragedy.
