    Rapper Eyedea Dies at 28 - He passed away in his sleep at home in Minnesota

    Minnesota rapper Eyedea has passed away. He was just 28. His mother told The Associated Press that her son died in his sleep at his home in St. Paul on Saturday. The cause of death has yet to be determined.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family in this trying ordeal.

    He was born Michael Larsen but morphed into his alter-ego, Eyedea, who recorded several albums for noted indie label Rhymesayers.

    Who is your favorite indie rapper/backpacker?
