Midwest rapper MC Breed, born Eric Breed, was found dead today (Nov. 22) after suffering kidney failure. He was 36. Breed’s manager Darryl Morris confirmed that the rapper was found dead at a friend’s home in Ypsilanti, Michigan, the Detroit News is reporting. In September, Breed collapsed on a basketball court. He was taken to the hospital and put on life support due to kidney failure. He was taken off life support days later, according to SOHH.com. Helping the Mid-West rise to popularity within hip-hop, the Michigan-bred emcee is known for gaining notice as an independent artist with a number of early 1990’s albums, including MC Breed & DFC, 20 Below, The New Breed and Funkafied. Breed’s career spans 20-years and 13 albums. Breed also famously collaborated with various West Coast rap stars including Too Short, Warren G and the late Tupac Shakur.
