Sad news for music fans.
Blackvoices.com reports that Eric Breed, better know as rapper MC Breed, has died at the early age of 36.
Fresh off his recent hospitalization in September, it is reported that the cause of death was complications due to kidney failure.
His manager, Darryl Morris, spoke with Detroit News, telling them that Breed was found dead on Saturday at his friend's home in Ypsilanti.
No further details where given.
Breed had a close call back in September when he was rushed to the hospital after collapsing while playing basketball. He was then listed in critical condition.
Morris had given details of the incident to All Hip Hop.com, telling them that Breed had to be revived a total of three times.
A benefit concert was in the works to help cover medical expenses according to the manager, and several of Breed's fellow rappers had been asked to perform.
Morris had also told the Web site, "We are hoping we can find Breed a kidney through this process, before it's too late."
Breed had the opportunity to work with such talents as Tupac Shakur and Too Short, and was reportedly working on upcoming album Original Breed, as well as Where Is MC Breed?, a DVD documentary on his life.
