It’s been twelve long, hard years since Flint, Michigan native MC Breed died of kidney failure.
The pioneering Midwest artist put his hometown on the map with his 1991 hit single, “Ain’t No Future In Yo Frontin.” Expertly utilizing the Ohio Players’ “Funky Worm,” the single peaked at No. 66 on the Billboard Hot 100, and his debut album, MC Breed & DFC, soon followed on August 13, 1991 through S.D.E.G. Records, distributed through Ichiban Records.
In 1993 the B-R-Double E-D released the iconic single “Gotta Get Mine” featuring Tupac Shakur, produced by Warren G and Colin Wolfe.
During his almost 20-year career, MC Breed would work and collaborate with several of the west coast’s biggest names like 2Pac, Warren G, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Ant Banks, The D.O.C., Too Short, Kurupt, Yo-Yo, Shock G of Digital Underground, MC Eiht and others.
Now, thanks to Geri Zeldes, a professor at Michigan State University’s School of Journalism, the Breed & Bootleg: Legacy of Flint Rap documentary will be making its debut at the Detroit Free Press Film Festival on December 2-6.
