Eyedea’s “Freestyle EP” and some new Face Candy
“Winter takes the warm away, Spring takes the cold away, Summer takes the rain away, and fall took away my friend”
So there has been some new freestyles by the late underground rapper Eyedea aka Michael Larsen. IT is now available on bandcamp here the link: http://micheallarsen.bandcamp.com/album/freestyles
Four freestyles that some of you true Eyedea supporters have heard but if you haven’t check it out. Everytime I heard this man he blows my mind. You can now download it to have on your Computer and other stuff. They are having a name your price where you can pay as much as you think it’s worth. Please support the cause C: Also if you haven’t heard of Eyedea check him out. He became famous when he won the Blaze Battle and Scribble Jam. Check his stuff out on YouTube and other such website. This man might be the best freestylist of all time, he can and would burn all of his opponents. He also made a group with DJ Abilities named : Eyedea and Abilities. They had three albums First Born, E&A, and most recently By the Throat. Check them all out right now and get them. You won’t regret it, you’ll regret not hearing about this earlier.
Another band/group you should be hearing is : Face Candy. Face Candy consists Micheal Larsen aka Eyedea, Christopher Keller, Casey O’Brien and J.T. Bates. They are in there Facebook words, “Face Candy is the brain child of E&A frontman, Eyedea. It is an improvisation based quartet melding free-jazz and freestyle rap into an unchartered amalgamation of the two, with roots in jazz, rap, comedy and theater. The line up includes local legends, J.T. Bates, Casey O’Brien, Eyedea and new-found local favorite Kristoff Krane.” So I would tell you to immediately check them out as well. They have one album so far, This Is Where We Were, but the label Rhymesayers has announced that Face Candy has a new album coming out some where in 2011. It will include Eyedea, which might be his last time we hear him in new stuff. The name of the new record is ‘Waste-Age Teenland’. So be on the look out for that. I’ll keep you posted on that as well.
And if you still don’t belive me on how good Eyedea is, then check out this video of him, killing it on the radio with fellow friend Slug, from Atmosphere
by the way if you don’t or wondering who is he, he is the one wearing Black.
and in the words of Michael
“And on Sunday, October the
5th, 17th, you took your last breath, and you will be missed.”-Hay Fever
Rest in Peace, Michael “Eyedea” Larsen
