Sean Price & DOOM’s Collabo May Be The Most Rugged Hip-Hop Song Of The Year (Audio)
There is nothing that can make up for the loss of Sean Price. The Brooklyn MC who was a vital part of Heltah Skeltah and Boot Camp Clik, as well as a formidable solo artist, was one of a kind, both in his gritty Rap style and his unorthodox sense of humor. While the Hip-Hop community is still reeling from his untimely passing two years ago tomorrow (August 8), Sean P’s music lives on and, by the sounds of some of the releases from his forthcoming posthumous album Imperius Rex, Price was still very much at the peak of his powers.
Following the releases of the album’s title track and Sean’s collaboration with Styles P and the late Prodigy, the next song to surface is one of the LP’s most anticipated. Price join forces with DOOM on “Negus,” and it is as rugged as it gets. P and DOOM are given a sinister and menacing soundtrack that suits both of their no-nonsense styles perfectly.
In addition to being a centerpiece on Sean Price’s album, according to a tweet from Adult Swim, the collaboration kicks off a series for DOOM called The Missing Notebook Rhymes, in which the masked villain is partnering with the network to release 15 songs in 15 weeks.
Both DOOM and Sean P fans are in store for more great music over the next several weeks. Sean Price’s Imperius Rex will be released by Duck Down Music tomorrow (August 8).
