ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota rapper who performed under the name Eyedea has died of unknown reasons at age 28.

Kathy Averill told The Associated Press that her son, Michael Larsen, died in his sleep at home in St. Paul on Saturday. She says she's awaiting autopsy results.

Larsen and childhood friend Max Keltgen recorded three albums as Eyedea and Abilities on Minneapolis hip hop group Atmosphere's label, Rhymesayers Entertainment. Eyedea and Abilities performed with the group in the late 1990s.

Averill says her son reached people through his music and poetry.
