Song of the Day: “Now” – Eyedea & Abilities

Yesterday, my Kristoff Krane post referenced my recap article on Soundset 2011. Apparently, whoever is running the Eyedea & Abilities page on Facebook reposted the article, and spiked the hits on Air Core Yell quite a bit, for which I am very grateful.

Mikey "Eyedea" Larsen and DJ Abilities

For those of you not in the Minnesota hip-hop know, Eyedea & Abilities was one of the rap heavyweights round these parts until MC Mikey “Eyedea” Larsen passed away last fall. His passing and the community’s response were both beyond words, so I won’t try to express what occurred in detail here, but the whole thing left a big imprint on the heart of Minnesota music.
