Eyedea's Cause Of Death: Accidental Overdose

Eyedea's Cause Of Death: Accidental Overdose

Last month, the hip-hop and greater music communities mourned the death of rapper Micheal "Eyedea" Larsen. In a depressing piece of punctuation to an already sad story, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune is reporting that the 28-year-old died of a drug overdose, citing a Ramsey County medical examiner's report that declared "opiate toxicity" as the cause of death. The report did not reveal what specific drugs were actually in Larsen's system at the time of his passing. The day after his death, Larsen's mother said that she was not aware of her son having any sort of addictions.

 

On Oct. 28, over 2,000 people turned out for a public service for the fallen MC. On Nov. 9 (which would have been Larsen's 29th birthday), a sold-out tribute show was held at Minneapolis' First Avenue venue, which included performances from Aesop Rock, Atmosphere's Slug, Doseone, Kimya Dawson, and Larsen's frequent recording partner DJ Abilities.

Rest In Peace. You were so talented
<3
I'm so goddamn tired, cant tell if I'm done, or just un-inspired
and don't give me that you can be somebody speech
that ain't your place, let me be
I'm an example of a candle lit life
with electric relaxation, brain trampled by devotion
to remote control channel changin
something provoked the whole globe to lower expectations
damn, what's wrong with my generation?
we was the cream of the crop but it seems we've been robbed
that's what happens when you trade in all your dreams for a job
and every day it gets less and less exciting
I would make a difference but I'm busy faking this instead of trying
change my shift from now to never and I'll pretend I'm fine
why am I stuck at the shi**y end of the assembly line
I guess I'm built to be intoxicated with hope
sometimes it's a journey, most the time it's just a bad joke
and in my scroll there's a junk drawr I can't organize
the first to come in last to leave we'll never be immortalized
this sort of life is completely overrated, I'm sick of being the
only one I know that's trying to take it
so right now I'm heading home, got sounds of nature for you born in
my headphones and half a bottle of ???
that's the reaction to an overdose of passion
brainless, stagnant...aint it magic
