It’s a sad day in hip hop. Earlier today I went to go get groceries for the week and picked up “Zombieland” from FYE. Normal, chill Sunday. I got home, sat on the couch, and hit up Twitter on my phone. I began scrolling down my timeline only to see about 7 “RIP Eyedea” tweets. Whaaaaaaaaaat? No way. I was in disbelief at first because, well, it’s Twitter. Can’t believe that kinda shit on there right away. A little more time passed and I still kept seeing more of those tweets. And what hit the hammer on the nail was when I saw that Eyedea’s mom confirmed the tragic news.
