Flint, MI rapper MC Breed passed away from kidney failure at the age of 36 yesterday. While Breed isn't in the same echelon as other MCs who have passed on, his two biggest hits will live on in Hip Hopper's lives. In 1990 his debut hit single, "Ain't No Future in Yo Frontin" came on the scene with a huge bang. It introduced people to the late 80s term 'frontin' and incorporated a west coast funk two years before The Chronic hit.
His second hit, "I Gotta Get Mine" was perhaps even more of a classic. Tupac's guest verse stole the track and coined the "mind on my money, money on my mind" phrase that is used in our lexicon to this day.
