Another death has hit the Hip Hop game as Rhymesayers MC Eyedea has passed away. He was only 28 years old. Although his latest release By The Throat was a disappointing effort in my eyes (I don't know why, it may be label pressure, but some white MCs seem to gravitate to "alternative/emo/mash up" delivery and style in their later releases, and this album seemed to border on that) their second release E & A was on steady rotation a few years back. Eyedea cut his teeth at an early age in battles and cyphers and when matched with Abilities' beats the result was a rpid fire precise effort. A definite highlight was "Now" which even made it on the SG Summer Beers mix a couple summers back. RIP.
