Celebrate the Life & Legacy of Sean Price with New Single (Audio)
It’s been less than a week since Sean Price passed away, and the collective mourning in the Hip-Hop community has crystallized how much love and influence he left behind. Since his death on August 8, countless homages to the bar-barian have appeared, from tribute pages on social media platforms, to murals honoring the late MC‘s memory, to the official memorial show in New York City taking place on August 27. Tens of thousands of dollars have been raised for P’s wife and three children, thanks to the creation of a Crowdrise campaign launched by Duck Down Music and now Heads have been given what is certainly the greatest tribute to Sean Price there is: new music.
Songs in the Key of Price is being released on Ruck Down Records, the label launched by the Heltah Skeltah member in 2009. With a title and artwork inspired by Stevie Wonder’s seminal Songs in the Key of Life, P’s latest mixtape is imbued with all of the humor and wit that has enveloped his entire discography. The mixtape is a 30-track project slated for release on August 21 and features guest verses from Ill Ghee, Foul Monday, Rim, Royal Flush, Head I.C.E., Starvin B, and Vic Spencer. The first single, “Planet Apes,” is emblematic of P’s booming, rugged delivery style and the production from PF Cuttin is nothing short of classic. Fans can support Price’s family by pre-orderingg not only the mixtape, but also one of two mixtape bundles available in the Duck Down Music Store. All proceeds go to the Price family.
