Eric Breed, a rare “breed” of MC in that he was both from the midwest and artistically influential during the 90’s, died in his sleep at a friend’s house near Detroit on Saturday. In September, the Flint, Michigan-based rapper collapsed due to kidney failure while playing a game of pickup basketball in Atlanta.
MC Breed is best known for his 1993 hit “Gotta Get Mine,” featuring Tupac Shakur. He also collaborated with Too Short. Sadly, Eric was said to be working on a DVD about his life titled “Where is MC Breed.” Rap star heaven, we hope.
