Sean Price died at age 43 last weekend. Price passed away while sleeping in his Brooklyn home. News of his passing hit the rap community very hard, with several artists taking to social media to offer their condolences to Price's family and share memories. In honor of Ruck, graffiti artist and former 5 Pointz curator Meres One created a beautiful mural of Price on a street corner in Crown Heights. Shortly after the news broke, record label Duck Down Music started a crowd fundraiser in hopes of raising $50,000 for the Price family. As of press time Friday (Aug 14), Duck Down has surpassed their goal, collecting $84,274 for Sean Price's loved ones.
Known as Ruck while in the duo Heltah Skeltah, P is recognized as one of the most important underground MCs in hip-hop history. Before his passing, Sean P was working on his new mixtape called Songs in the Key of Price, due out next Friday (Aug. 21). The tape will be available through the Duck Down Records shop in a variety of different bundles. In the meantime, check out "Planet Apes," the first single off the tape and "Pet Sounds," a Mac Miller track featuring the late MC.
