MC Breed Biography
After his early success with the 1991 gold-selling single "Ain't No Future In Yo' Frontin'," featuring a sample from "Funky Worm" by the Ohio Players, he connected with rappers from both the south and the west coast. He finally joined fellow rapper Too Short in Atlanta, Georgia, which resulted in his G-funk-oriented sound giving way to Dirty South influences. Breed was one of the first rappers from the mid-west to break into national and international markets.
On May 11, 2006, Genesee Circuit Court Judge Richard Yullie ordered the 34-year-old Breed to serve a year in Jackson State Prison for violating his probation due to failure to make $200,000 in child support payments..
Breed used the moniker "MC Breed" as the main artist name on his releases, however he is credited with his full name, "Eric Breed", for his writing and production work.
