Eyedea had a career that garnished him accolades and respect from the hip hop community yet he struggled to reach a platform like Eminem did that would garnish him commercial success. He also struggled to find a fit but maybe this was not a bad thing for he created unique landscapes to propel his message.
Before his passing, he began to create a more cleaned up version of his former tunes and yet, his music began to take on a more somber note as he struggled with his inner demons.
Towards the end came this. With a video to boot.
