R.I.P. Micheal Larsen aka Eyedea

Rapperen Eyedea, født Micheal Larsen, er desværre død. En af den alternative hiphops mest talentfulde rappere.

Her til morgen bringer diverse musikmagasiner og -blogs den kedelige nyhed, at Micheal Larsen, mere kendt som Eyedea, er død. På en facebookgruppe skriver hans mor følgende:

»It is with great pain and sadness that I tell you my son Mikey (Eyedea) has passed away.

Eyedea var kendt som en særdeles talentfuld rapper, der havde vundet op til flere konkurrencer, og i sit samarbejde med dj’en Abilities udgav tre fremragende bud på alternativ hiphop, senest med sidste års punk-inspirerede By the Throat. Derfra virker følgende citat nu som en ubehagelig forudsigelse: »There’s no hell more harsh than a memory / there’s no home more hell than en empty nest / winter takes the warm away / spring takes the cold away / summer takes the rain away / and fall took away my friend« (“Hay Fever”).

Her er videoen til “Smile”. Han vil blive savnet.
