Eyedeology

Eyedea & Abilities tries to live up to its potential as it strives to push hip-hop forward.

"I am one voice," says Eyedea. "He's another voice that's just as strong, if not stronger. His instrument is revolutionary. So I'm like, &'Fuck, let that be a prominent part of the music.' And obviously, he feels the same about me as a vocalist. So that's how our chemistry developed."

These two have barely scratched the surface of their potential. And, like the Pixies, if massive commercial success eludes them, so be it.

"If I'm never famous or never rich or never really all that good, I don't give a fuck," Eyedea concludes. "What I'm doing is trying be the greatest artist I can be -- every single day -- because that's all I can to do."
