Duck Down Records Confirms Def Jam Interested In Sean Price, Buckshot Recording New Album With KRS-One

sean-price1.jpgIn an exclusive interview with XXLMag.com, Duck Down Records’ CEO, Dru Ha, confirms the rumors Def Jam Records has expressed interested in Sean Price. “He’s not signed to The Roc, but there’s definitely interest. That part is real.” Dru told XXLMag.com. “We are definitely taking some phone calls, but nothing [is] concrete. Right now, we’re just listening. But a lot of people have taken notice and that’s the best part about it. Different A&R’s [from different companies] are calling. But there was no Jay-Z phone call.” While Duck Down fields offers, Sean P. is currently putting the finishing touches on his upcoming album with Detroit’s Black Milk and Guilty Simpson. He is also recording with his partner, Rock, for the long awaited Heltah Skeltah reunion album, D.I.R.T. The album is tentatively scheduled for the first quarter of 2008.

Black Moon’s Buckshot is keeping busy as well with two new projects. The BDI Thug and 9th Wonder will release a new album, The Formula, this October. The LP is a follow up to 2005’s Chemistry. “Buck spent three weeks with 9th in North Carolina working on The Formula,” Dru says. “They picked up where Chemistry left off. It’s a really good connection. The two of them are in the same zone.” The album will feature a guest appearance from Pete Rock and is billed as a “more mature Buck.” 9th Wonder is also reaching out to Lupe Fiasco and Kanye West for guest appearances, but neither is confirmed. In addition, Dru Ha revealed Buckshot and KRS-One are planning to do an album together. The details on the project are still sketchy, though.

Finally, Smif-N-Wessun will release a new album this fall with Swedish producer Ken BB. Tek and Steele spent a month in Stockholm with Ken, who produced “Trading Places” off the BCC 2006 compilation album, The Last Stand. Boot Camp will also drop a new album in July, Causalities of War. The album isn’t a follow up to The Last Stand, rather a compilation of unreleased songs.

  • Holla

    If Jay was smart he’d signed Sean P! but than again, his album would probably never come out if he did sign

    LOL 11Kap, have you actually listened to Price? He said it himself once; he just scrambles random words to see what sounds good. The shit ain’t “concious Hip-Hop”.

    It’s about time! Sean Price is very strong artist and powerful force in the indy game, I really feel the major label deal would skyrocket his career in terms of publicity and getting recognized by the media industry as a real life rap superstar! hip-hop’s savior is here! Sign The God!

  • Big Slim

    lol @ the “conscious” post cuz Sean spits some of the most ignant niggafied rap ever. But as to signing to a major, that would not be poppin’ @ all. With Jay as the CEO, a Price album will never see the light of day. It would be a bone head move if you ask me.

    ’bout time we get off these hiatuses. let’s see these fellas pump out some hits again!

  • SEAN

    I REEALLY THINK THAT THE UNDERGROUNDERS SHOULD STAY UNDERGROUND THEIR SOUND IS MORE GRITTY AND HARD OPPOSED TO THE MAJOR LABELS WHICH SOFTEN BLOWS. THE UNDERGROUND SOUND IS UNIQUE I HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO UNDERGROUNDERS FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS AND WHEN IT COMES TO HIP-HOP I THINK IS THE ONLY REAL WAY… DONT GET ME WRONG NEW SKOOL RAP IS LIKED BY THE MASS MEDIA AND MANY PEOPLE THOUGHT-OUT THE WORLD BUT IT LACKS THAT SCRATCHY GRITTY SOUND… I’D LOVE TO HEAR A SEAN P. AND KRS-ONE COLABBO, JUST LIKE I CANT WAIT TO SEE THE JEDI, RA, REEF, AND SEAN P. SHOW COMIN UP AT THE TROC.
    STAY UP AND GET DOWN

  • POPS

    fuq that. i don’t want my man to get played like how they did Bill and Fame. stay with duck down, son. fuq Def Jam. he is a ill rapper regardless of whatever label he’s on. real fans don’t give a damn about your label. if you are good then you are good. publicity and a marketing budget don’t guarantee anything.

    Damn…that’s really good news for P if he does make the def jam roster…but at least he’s bein recognized and at least hell be at a more mainstream record label…it goes both ways tho…like some dude up there said..he might just be put on the shelf like a lot of rappers on def jam…but in my opinion he should take it cuz that nigga needs money right now..like he said…the brokest rapper in the game…
    sean PPPPPP!

    i don`t know if is good….for me many people do better music before major

  • Digital

    I been listening to sean since day one and I gotta say the nigga can rap his ass off. But this thing with def jam is both good and bad. The good thing about it is if def jam handles their business right it could mean betta dollars and more exposure for sean. But then the flip side of it is what if he get that pressure to be “more commercial” and lose creative control. Example, Mobb Deep. Before they even put out blood money I said dem niggas is selling they self short hoping on the G-unit bandwagon. Everybody thought this was their moment for muti-platinum status and for the greatest album since “The infamous”… wrong!!!! ( And whassup with M.O.P.? ) But back to sean, if all he wants is bigger dollars than go to def jam but dude should stick with duck down cuz the underground is where “real hip-hop” dwells now…

  • dna

    i’m not feeling it.. the people on def jam now don’t even wanna be on def jam

  • Mike

    I KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN, HIP-HOP WILL BE OVER OF THIS GOES DOWN. STAY UNDERGREOUND, STAY DUCK DOWN, IN BUCKSHOT’S WORDS “STAY REAL, NEVER CHANGE”

  • http://www.myspace.com/dgroove1 DGroove

    That’s what’s up! Sean Price on the verge of a major deal and the BDI MC working with KRS…All hope is not lost in the hip-hop world. Keep doing your thing Dru Ha and the rest of the Boot Camp Clik. I can also agree with some of the comments about staying at Duck Down, the underground needs artists like Sean P. but, with the right deal, he could have a MAJOR impact on the rap game and change up the same old same old we’ve been subjected to.
    Peace

  • the formula…

    dunno if ‘the brokest rapper you know’ would fit a major. man but kanye and lupe maybe on next buckshot/9th album?!? damnnnn

  • http://derpap.blogspot.com/ Head yugo in charge

    Is Def Jam finally heading into a different direction or just adding something to reach a wider audience? Either way, thats only going to make other labels jump on the bandwagon, wich would be good in this case.

    While you are bullshitting, someone sign Kool G Rap, Masta Ace and Big Daddy Kane.

    Well, gratz to U, P. And if u sign, good luck to ya and I hope U can make it bigtime. Just don’t forget what shit is about.

    Although the idea of signing with Def Jam sounds lucrative, I feel that would take away from the true meaning of Boot Camp. Boot Camp has always been underground, and that is one of the main =reasons they are my favorite. Def Jam is a powerhouse nonetheless. Def jam always comes with the hot shit too. I am interested to see how it pans out. If there was any group that deserves to have Def Jam money, It would be Boot Camp all the way. Good luck guys!

  • Jerzzy

    That’s what’s sup Duck Down is really doing they thing again with Sean P making noise, Smif N wessun bout to get back in the booth,and Buckshot working with KRS but in order for them to get a joint venture deal with a major like def jam I think they need to show that they are in tune with the time even though each and every one of them have their own legacies they need some new young talent just to get them in the publics eye more and appeal to the new hip hop listeners.No disrespect because all of them still look young enough and can still spit but they need someone the new hip hop fans can relate to and reintroduce them to people who may have forgot.Other than that I’m one of the biggest Bootcamp fans but I’m kinda young so I just started listening to them for like the past 2 and a half years but I love everything they on.

  • Ciz

    lmao @ concious hip hop. Sean P is as hood as Uncle Murda lmao. His whole album is about bein broke, sellin coke, fuckin people up, etc. He’s just dope lyrically at what he does and his word play is creative. Does anyone actually listen to rap.. or do they place labels on people because of associations?

    Sean P should tell Def Jam to fall back! Stick w/ the indie route and keep your money. Look what Def Jam did to Meth, Red, and The Roots…need i say more.

  • Garrick

    Sean P…don’t fuck w/ Def Jam! Look what they did to Red & Meth, oh and let’s not forget The Roots! Has anyone herd from Nas since he and Joe Camel (Jay-Z) kissed and made up?

  • Tru dat

    I agree with Jerzy, that’s true when is Duck down gonna stop keeping such a tight circle and get some new talent because they need a new look it’s almost looking like they washed up.Even though all of them could still spit if you not appealing to the youth nobody cares because the youth listen to lyrics too look at the new class of emcees we got like Pap,Saigon,Skyzoo,etc. but you just gotta give them a reason to listen

  • AlfoBetiC

    so yeah… that’s the deal now huh… well
    I wish Sean the best in his career progress.
    on the other hand it’s a thing that may keep him from comin out the way he wants to come out and ofcourse the big when… cuz if you get paid to record an album and have it sit on the shelve for 2 years that’d be fugged up! and may prevent him in keepin his creative controll see cuz he’s is the illest!!!! no doubt!
    I’d hate to see that illness make place for a different attitude….
    cause to tell you the truth…. DEF JAM is more of a marketing strategy than a droppin dope shit type label nowadays…. I loved that shit 20 years back… but that shit they hit us up with nowadays, just hit me as whack!
    SEAN P should go independent or stay with DUCK DOWN

But I guess people were and are still buying bullshit rap and xxl is one of the biggest sellouts as far as fake rap mags go, I guess somebody finally took their dick outta their ear so they could finally start hearing good music.And by the way, what the fuck is wrong with you guys putting young buck on the cover, get the fuck outta here with that bullshit, what a fuckin joke.

    Ayo I’m from East New York but I heard Buckshot got a cousin named Stones out in Brownsville doing his thing I don’t know if they’re really blood but I was on his myspace page (www.myspace.com/stonesmuzik) and he kinda do resemble Buckshot.Son is nice though but I don’t know if he signed with Duck down or who he signed with or even if he signed I just know about him cause my man from the ville put me on and said he got a buzz going on out there.Ayo but you know I’m from ENY so it’s UNCLE MURDA all day,I fukks wit Bootcamp too though

  • NU-G RED

    I’m happy that Sean P is getting some recognition finaly because he realy is a talented brother oh yea and ENY TILL I DIE, I checked out Stones and he do look like buckshot on the other hand he’s not quite on Buckshot’s level when it comes to spitting but it’s clear to see he does have talent and can realy make a name for himself.

  • lyrical-rocket-launcher

    If Sean P. went to a major, he wouldn’t be Sean P….. They would have to edit/change lyrical content to make him more appealing to teeny-boopers who buy major label BS. The album would never even come out. Besides, Sean wouldn’t take to that, then we as true fans would miss out on new material that would have been. It’s a waste of time….. Songs like “Violent” off the Jesus Price album would no longer exist. Word to Donkey Kong Sean!!!!! Hottest album of the year!!!! Headz ain’t ready…..

  • p

    damn yall dont want a nigger 2 get money keith murray got kicked off 4 being rowdy red lp was trash and meth said he has no problems with def jam and ll cool j is jealous that he didnt get the ceo spot like jay z did joe buddens keep dissing the label so thats why they aint put his shit out and i read in a interview that sean would never leave duckdown so if he is going2 def jam then it will be duckdown def jam remember dru ha is his ceo and manager so hes never leaving duckdown i also heard that src and atlantic are interested also
