Sean Price & Chris Rivers Spit Venom On A Track With Bruse Wane (Video)
Sometimes the best way to make a name for oneself is to make songs with established, respected MCs in a lane you aspire to merge into. Sean Price made his debut on Smif-n-Wessun’s 1995 debut, Dah Shinin’, and began a shuffle into the game through key spots alongside fellow Boot Camp Clik members. By the time of his death, Sean P was one of independent Hip-Hop’s most respected voices, with others following him.
Chris Rivers is another ongoing example. Artists like Styles P, Joell Ortiz, Vinnie Paz, and ONYX have mentored Big Pun’s son to become one of the most exciting hardcore lyricists of the 2010s. He is now leading a new class of MCs that are making hard-as-nails Rap with punctuated deliveries.
In 2015, Bruse Wane self-released The Earl Manigaut Of Rap. “Venom” is easily a focal point of that LP featuring Sean (who had passed away several months before release) and Chris. Getting his name up (care of a lead-off verse), Bruse gives way to Chris Rivers—who obliterates the track with his own snakebite attack on the microphone. One of Sean’s contemporaries and close friends, Illa Ghee, appears in the video to lip-sync deliver the “bar-barian’s” verse.
This single features scratches by DJ Eclipse.
