Rapper MC Breed, aka Eric Breed, collapsed and fell unconscious during a game of basketball September 5th. He was admitted to an Atlanta area hospital where it was discovered that he was suffering from kidney failure. Breed, 36, best known for the hit single “Aint No Future in Yo Frontin,’” was previously on the independent Atlanta based label, Ichiban Records.
The success of that single led to a meeting with rap legend the D.O.C. around 1992 in Saint Louis and an entrance into West coast’s inner Hip-Hop circle at the time – Suge Knight, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Richie Rich, Yo-Yo, Coolio, The Dogg Pound, Too $hort and others.
Breed was originally placed on life support but it has since been removed. He is in serious need of a kidney transplant and is seeking a donor for it was revealed recently that his kidneys are only 30% functional. (Source 1 / Source 2)
