allonevoice Throwback to one of the most transformative nights and influential concert attendances of my life. This photo is from 5 years ago, I'm on the left, beatboxing for Kristoff Krane while he freestyled during his set at Mercury Lounge in NYC. I went to see the late Micheal "Eyedea" Larson play as Eyedea and Abilities, with @kristoffkrane and Educated Consumers. This was a few weeks after I released my first album "Coal Aberrations" and I was the loudest person in that crowd, reciting every word of every song like it was a high octane prayer. My girlfriend at the time pushed me to volunteer to beatbox when Krane asked, and told Eyedea I was a huge fan and an artist myself, and he made it a point to put his arm around me during a song and rap lyrics into a shares microphone. I bought so much merch they actually almost refused me, not wanting me to go broke, and we all got to talk outside and just be people. I gave them a copy of Coal Aberrations as an attempted "thank you". Their personable and connective sincere performance is something I flash back to every time I touch a microphone. I also got to near a great artist and friend in the crowd that I'm in touch with to this day, "Anonymous (and.on.i.must.)" Thank you Chris, Mikey (R.I.P) and Greg for these indelible and beautiful memories. This experience I have is evidence of your true artistry and dedication. #tbt #bruceallonepandolfo #eyedea #michealeyedealarson #kristoffkrane #throwbackthursday #mercurylounge #beatboxing #freestyling #indiehiphop #rhymesayers #eyedeaandabilities #liveshows #coalaberrations #educatedconsumers #undergroundrap 4d

blang992 And on this day 6 years ago the best album ever, in my opinion, was released. By the throat by eyedea and abilities. Zoe got this side table made up for me for my 23rd birthday with the album cover on it. So do yourself a favor and listen to this album. Take in its message. Listen and enjoy every second of it. #reyep #bythethroat #eyedeaandabilities #hiphop #youtookmebythethroat #eyedea #goodmusic #neverforgotten 6d

durtyart I've donated a painting to @crushkillrecs for the 5 year celebration of Micheal "Eyedea" Larsen. This is to help raise money for the event and all proceeds will go to this. Go hop on eBay to bid. It's an honor to be doing this for a great cause. Share this so we can raise the money. #durtyart #eyedea #micheallarsen #reyep #minneapolis #minnesota #minnesotahiphop #eyedeaandabilities #mikey #crushkill #hiphopart #saintpaul #stpaul #rhymesayers #djabilities 6d
