Sean Price’s Eternal Talent Shines On A Track By Cypress Hill’s DJ Muggs (Video)
Through the later years of Sean Price’s career, he became the consummate cleanup batter whenever he stepped to the mic on a track that featured multiple MCs. More times than not, “P!” figuratively smacked the beat out of the park with his gruff delivery, compound rhymes, and alliterative wordplay. Price doesn’t come up short of that role on “Aquatic Violence,” the latest video from DJ Muggs & Meyhem Lauren’s just-released Gems From The Equinox.
“Aquatic Violence” also features Mr. Muthaf*ckin’ ExQuire. The collabo’ lives up to the song’s title with violent imagery and fluid transitions between bars within their respective verses. Sean shines with rewindable bars like, “Eighth shotters hate American bastards / That makes dollars daily like Erick and Parrish / P, degenerate Rap sh*t / This world is an ex-girl you never get back with.”
The visual shows Mr. M.F.E., Muggs, Meyhem, as well as P’s wife Bernadette Price and daughter Shawn. Longtime Boot Camp Clik cohort Tek of Smif N Wessun is posted on the block in front of P’s Brooklyn mural.
This is a prototypical Muggs production with a menacing tone of eerie violin samples, and a bottom-heavy bassline that evokes the gritty nature of each MC. This creation conjures early Cypress Hill comparisons. While those platinum LPs featured doses of West Coast Funk, this particular concoction showcases Muggs’ own Queens, New York roots.
