Biography

Eyedea & Abilities were an American duo comprised of lyricist Eyedea and turntablism champion DJ Abilities. Under the name Sixth Sense they produced their first collaborative album Grand’s Sixth Sense in the basement of their childhood home. Their wordy, thought provoking debut First Born was released under the name Eyedea & Abilities after signing to the underground hip hop label Rhymesayers Entertainment.

Their commercially successful sophomore album E&A (released 2004) became a staple of the Twin Cities hip hop community, although following hectic touring the release of Eyedea & Abilities next album By the Throat would take several years, with Eyedea and DJ Abilities touring separately.

After a productive hiatus they returned with the critically acclaimed By the Throat (released 2009). Sonically divergent from their earlier work, By the Throat would showcase the their individual development along with the talents of Jeremy Ylvisaker, J.T. Bates & Graham O’Brien.

Eyedea (Born Micheal Larsen on November 9, 1981 – October 16, 2010) who also performed under the name Oliver Hart became widely known because of his battle and freestyle skills. The Many Faces of Oliver Hart prominently features the obliterating lyrical speed of a young Carnage The Executioner aka Terrell Woods along with Slug (of Atmosphere).
