About Sean Price
Along with his partner Rock, Sean Price (aka Ruck) dropped two impressive LP’s as the duo Heltah Skeltah; their 1996 debut 'Nocturnal' (which included the indelible “Leflaur Leflah Eshkoshka”) and their 1998 follow-up 'Magnum Force.' Sean is also a core member of the legendary Boot Camp Clik collective and has been a key and stand out contributor to all three of their collaborative releases; 1997’s 'For the People', 2002’s 'The Chosen Few' and 2006’s 'The Last Stand.'
Not to be outdone, Sean proved he was more then up to the task as a solo-artist as well, as he contributed one of 2005’s most critically acclaimed and talked about LP’s with his solo-debut 'Monkey Barz', which garnished multiple accolades for Sean, including; being named Source Magazine’s Indie LP of the year, being placed on Urb Magazine’s “Hot 100 list” inclusion in the Village Voice’s yearly “Pazz And Jop” poll, 2005 Indie LP of the year from Allhiphop.com and Indie LP of the year nods from Hiphopsite.com, Hiphopdx.com, Soundslam.com, MVremix.com and Sixshot.com.
The incessant clamoring and buzz for Sean’s Price’s sophomore solo-LP, 'Jesus Price Supastar', has come full-circle, as Sean released the LP January 2007 on Duck Down Music Inc. Hip Hop purists have long recognized and appreciated Sean’s commanding delivery, powerful voice and clever verses and all of those attributes are on full-display with 'Jesus Price Supastar.'
Many of the same beat makers that helped shape 'Monkey Barz' were back on board to craft another classic LP. 9th Wonder chips in five tracks and Justus League’s Khrysis also returns to put his stamp on three tracks. Also, contributing production are !llmind, MoSS, Tommy Tee and PF Cuttin. Phonte, Skyzoo, Sadat X, Chaundon, Ruste Juxx and fellow BCC members Rock, Buckshot and General Steele guest appearancesmore.
Sean Price didn't waste any of his current momentum. As he followed up with the release of a mixtape entitled 'Master P' later the same year.
Sean Price reunited with rhyming partner Rock to release their first Heltah Skeltah album in 10 years entitled 'D.I.R.T. (Da Incredible Rap Team).' The highly anticipated album might expectations but still hungry for more.
In 2009 Sean Price teamed up with Guilty Simpson and Black Milk to create one of the rawest hip-hop supergroups in recent years, Random Axe. They released their self-titled debut, 'Random Axe' June 2011. The album was critically acclaimed and well recieved by fans for its hard hitting production provided by Black Milk and fierce, witty rhymes provided by Sean Price and Guilty Simpson.
Despite releasing two group albums in the last two years fans were still highly anticipating a solo Sean Price album. In 2009 Sean Price released a mixtape entitled 'Kimbo Price' which serves as a prelude to P's next album 'Mic Tyson.'
In 2012, Sean Price released 'Mic Tyson' to high acclaim. It featured the same hard hitting production his fans are use to as he Sean Price worked with The Alchemist, 9th Wonder, Evidence, Khrysis, Statik Selektah and more. It also features Buckshot, Freddie Gibbs, Ill Bill, and Pharoahe Monch with an unforgettable hook on "BBQ Sauce."
Over the past several years, whether through his various skits, his signature "P!" ad-lib, or his rugged rhymes, Sean Price has created an almost mythological Rap persona in the best way. He manages to shift between a purposely sloppy, raw delivery to surgical rhymes seamlessly, which accentuates each style all the more. With the recent release of 'Mic Tyson,' he is living proof that “old school” concepts can exist and sound fresh in 2013. It’s a matter of execution, and in that regard, fans will have little to complain about.
