The History of The Micranots (video)

The Micranots were IMO a great hiphop group in that late 90’s movement that spawned so many classic names like Cage, El-P, Ill Bill, Atmosphere, among a slew of others. They dropped a few good albums in the few years they put in work namely Obelisk Movements and The Emperor and The Assassin. Apparently Obelisk Movements is FINALLY! being rereleased for the first time on iTunes and on CD. This is an underground classic and the new generation needs to absorb this material and hopefully we’ll here some new music from The Micranots.

R.I.P. Eyedea

Eyedea

Word has hit the internet and the underground hip-hop community that famed MC Eyedea has died. So far word hasnt come out how the battle MC lost his life but his mother let his fans know about the passing today via his facebook page.

It is with great pain and sadness that I tell you my son Mikey (Eyedea) has passed away.

Eyedea was the same age as myself and we were actually only about a week apart. His birthday was early next month and sadly this talented man didnt live to see 29 but his music will live long past that. I recall the 1st time I got aqainted with Eyedea was when I watched him tear about Shellz on the Blaze Battle on HBO. Much love to Eyedea’s family, friends, and fans.
