Rapper MC Breed passes away in Michigan
Rapper MC Breed has died in Michigan, reportedly as a result of kidney failure. He was 37.

The star, who was responsible for the 1991 hit 'Ain't No Future In Yo' Frontin'' died at a friend's house on Saturday (November 22) in Ypsilanti, MI. No foul play is suspected.

The Associated Press says that toxicology reports are pending, but that two Michigan newspapers have reported the cause of death as kidney failure.

Breed was a native of Flint, MI and relocated to Atlanta, GA in the '90s.

He was revived three times in September of this year after suffering kidney failure while playing basketball in Atlanta. He was placed on life support and reports then said his kidneys were only 30 per cent functional.

At the time of his death, Breed was working on a DVD of his life entitled 'Where Is MC Breed', reports MTV News.
