Ebow "Metropolis" Graham, one of the founding members of Foreign Beggars, has passed away after an undisclosed accident at home at the age of 41.

The group - who fuse genres like hip-hop, grime and dubstep - broke the news to fans on social media.

A crowdfunding page has been created to help support Graham's family and 10-year-old son, Cassius, which can be found here.

The GoFundMe page states that Graham “suffered from an accident at home and passed away in the early hours yesterday morning.”

The page continues: “In his recent years, he had been on a spiritual journey and had really been exploring his relationship with existence and the universe, only last week he was in a very serene and happy place with his life, family and artistic vision.

'Some of the last words we heard him say were ‘The only way humanity will heal is when it understands that we are all Gaia and truly understand we are all one.'”
