Eyedea & Abilities


An emcee/DJ duo from Minneapolis, Eyedea & Abilities serve up the sort of thoughtful, reflective hip-hop that many critics have dubbed "emo-rap." Like their labelmates Atmosphere, their songs revolve around personal feelings and frustrations and never veer into gangster fairy tales or high life fantasies. Abilities is a champion DJ and excellent producer, while Eyedea is a Scribble Jam battle vet with a style akin to wordy lyricists like Sage Francis or even Aesop Rock. They released their debut album First Born in 2002, followed by E&A in 2004 and By The Throat in 2009. Sadly, Michael "Eyedea" Larsen passed away in 2010 at the age of 28.
