Sean Price Is The Smartest Dumb Rapper…
In only another week the Africans on Fulton Street and Nostrand Ave will have the new Fifty Cent album and the KanYe West joint for sale. The way I see it, if Jigga’s album gets leaked over two weeks in advance of the release date then I don’t believe that there is anyone outside of the reach of the Chinese Africans. I mean seriously, who could bootleg shit iller than a Chinese African? That’s the best of both bootlegging worlds right there. That’s like a new Louis Vuitton bag with malaria in the inside pockets! You can’t win Rocky! They got the bootlegs now with the full liner notes and the hologram coupon inside for a half price hero at Quizznos.
I don’t blame all those rappers jumping on the stage together at the CreamFest show either. Show money is sure money, my homey from the X-Ecutioners once told me, and the word business is twice as long as the word show. That’s why I fucks with that nigga Sean P, because he be about his business. If you got a few chips he will get on your mixtape and spit that fire. As a matter of fact, that nigga Sean P is so hardbody he will give you a mean sixteen for a box of Newports and a four chicken wings fried rice meal from the Chinese spot on the corner. Dude is still grimey.
My niggas from Ralph Avenue Cybertron be arguing with me that Sean P is putting in TOO much work for TOO cheap. Like he is giving lames too much credibility when he gets on their tracks. I don’t see it like that. I think Ruck is just putting himself in the position to be working for the next ten years. There’s too much bitch shit in the game where niggas don’t want to work with artists that may not have a widespread name in the game. That’s bitchmade shit to me. Everybody had to start from somewhere. That same nigga that sounds like a cornball now will be improving his style and his flow and then in five years niggas will show him love. Look at KanYe. Five years ago that nigga’s flow was miserable. Now you can’t tell him nothing.
Sean Price is smart enough to show that love to everybody. That is the type nigga that will be on tour forever with whomever. This is the biggest advantage of backpacker rap too. You get to see artists perform in venues that are intimate and built for sound as opposed to being in a fucking arena with a million screaming groupies and rappers lip synching their tracks. I fucks with arena Hip-Hop shows too, but there is nothing better than a venue that holds only a few hundred real fans. Sean Price has set himself up to do these types of shows a hundred days a year. If he was only catching one stack per show that would still be 100K a year. That’s not a bad looking W1040 form to file every year. Ask the Roots.
