We’ve lost another one.
Over the weekend Eric Breed, known to us as MC Breed, passed away. Courtesy of AP:
Breed, known professionally as MC Breed, died Saturday at a friend’s home in Ypsilanti, about 30 miles southwest of Detroit, a Washtenaw County medical examiner’s spokesman said Monday.
Toxicology reports were pending, but no foul play was suspected in the 37-year-old’s death.
Breed had suffered from kidney failure, according to The Detroit News and The Flint Journal.
Breed’s biggest hit was “Ain’t No Future in Yo Frontin'”, which dropped way back in 1991. Ah, those middle school memories.
Way before Eminem and Kanye West hit it big, and even preceding artists like Da Brat and Bone Thugs N Harmony, Breed was one of the first standout rappers from the Midwest. “Ain’t No Future” was his only big song but he remained pretty prolific through the years, even doing a track with 2pac. And I know y’all love 2pac for some reason.
Anyway, check out “Ain’t No Future in Yo Frontin'” in honor of a Midwest pioneer.
