Throughout Sean’s career he would create his own spin-off, or character, based on someone he respected, maybe a pop culture icon, or maybe someone he had some sort of love for. For example, we all know and love Mic Tyson, Kimbro Price, and who could forget Jesus Price Supastar.
‘Songs In The Key Of Price’ was no different. For this mixtape cover he opted to create a playful spin on Stevie Wonder’s ‘Songs In The Key Of Life’ album. You’ll be able to find the original art floating around online, and some of you lucky fans will now have a special collector’s item to enjoy. Unfortunately, we were politely asked by Universal Music to remove the art at the digital outlets, as well as change the CD art for future production. We agreed, of course. They were very respectful of the situation and delivered their condolences in Sean’s passing. Who knew that Stevie Wonder would be touring ‘Songs In The Key Of Life’ this fall? Sean would have laughed about this.
Sean Price, Brooklyn rapper and member of the hip-hop groups Heltah Skeltah, Boot Camp Clik and Random Axe, died Saturday morning at the age of 43.
“It is with beyond a heavy heart that Duck Down Music is sadly confirming that Sean Price passed away early this morning in his Brooklyn apartment, Saturday, August 8th, 2015. The cause of death is currently unknown, but it was reported that he died in his sleep. He’s survived by his wife, and his three children,” a rep for Price said in a statement.
Price first rose to prominence under the moniker Ruck as a member of Heltah Skeltah alongside fellow Brownsville, Brooklyn rapper Rock. The pair were members of a hip-hop collective known as the Boot Camp Clik, which also featured Black Moon’s Buckshot, Smif-N-Wessun’s Tek and Steele and the trio O.G.C. After first appearing on Smif-N-Wessun’s revered 1995 LP Dah Shinin’, Heltah Skeltah released their own 1996 debut Nocturnal. That was followed the next year by the first Boot Camp Clik LP For the People.
While Ruck continued to release music with both Heltah Skeltah and Boot Camp Clik throughout the past two decades, the rapper rebranded himself under his birth name when he delved into his solo career. As Sean Price, he released three studio albums, 2005’s Monkey Barz, 2007’s Jesus Price Supastar and 2012’s Mic Tyson.
