R.I.P. Flint-Town Legend; MC Breed
The year was 1991 and Breed had just put out his first musical effort with local Flint, MI rap group, MC Breed & DFC. The album was host to two of his earliest classic singles 'Ain't No Future in Yo Frontin' and 'Just Kickin It'. In 1992, Breed released his first solo effort "20 Below".
Over the next 16 years he would have mostly limited success but still manage to create works of masterpiece as one of the first, or quite possibly the very first successful Mid-West rap artist. Throughout his extensive career, Breed has collaborated with artists such as Tupac, Too $hort and the D.O.C. not to mention many more.
On September 5th, 2008 he became deathly ill but managed to recover to what seemed a healthy status but in less than 3 months his kidneys failed to hold up any longer. It is believed that Eric Breed died sometime in his sleep on November 22nd, 2008.
May he rest in peace and be forever remembered as a staple in Hip-Hop's culture and a fore-father of the Mid-West uprising.
