I would never just post a video because of a Sean Price verse……wait….yes I would. This isn’t one of those times though. Bruse Wane can hold his own and Chris Rivers reminds you what his lineage is like before the Bar-Barian drops by. DJ Eclipse cutting up sure does help too. All in all, a good joint from Wane’s recent release The Earl Manigault Of Rap.
Comprehensive Beatdown is back this week with a special episode dedicated to the great Sean Price, who passed away on August 8, 2015. Price was known for his solo work, as well as his work with the group Heltah Skeltah and the larger crew Boot Camp Clik. Also known as Ruck, Price was an important figure in the resurgence of East Coast hip hop in the mid 90s.
For episode 24, the guys take a look back at Sean Price’s illustrious career and discuss his impact and the legacy of Boot Camp Clik. RIP Ruck.
“It is with beyond a heavy heart that Duck Down Music is sadly confirming that Sean Price passed away 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. Sean Price, who turned 43 in March of this year, was a beloved rap artist. He was 1/2 of the group Heltah Skeltah, a key member of the Boot Camp Clik, 1/3 of the group Random Axe and a successful solo artist, known simply as Sean Price. Funds are being raised to direclty assist Sean Price’s family moving forward.”
When that fool said that only two things are promised in life, “Taxes and Death”, he was wrong. Another certainty is that when you combine the psychotic style of 7even:Thirty with the sinister talents of Sean Price and mix it together over the diabolic sounds of Gensu Dean whack rappers runaway and hide in their own shadows praying to every false idol they can muster up. The video for their dastardly collaborative effort “Hook Heavy” is equally menacing for cream puff, charmin extra soft emcees. The Problem, 7even:Thirty’s follow up to the critically acclaimed Heaven’s Computer, is shaping up to be the most anticipated album of the year for me. Precise and razor sharp lyrics and brash, in your face boom bap at it’s finest, meld together and form a unique weapon that would make Hattori Hanzō envious. The Problem drops on Tuesday, July 8th. You can pre-order the album at the links below. You can also pick up physical copies where ever illegal weapons are forged and/or brandished. If you are in Jackson, that place is Offbeat Art in Midtown

7Even:Thirty drops another banger from his forthcoming album The Problem, which drops on July 8th via Mello Music Group. The project is produced entirely by Hip-Hop producer extraordinaire, Gensu Dean. The first leak “$ Stacks & Body Bags” was a venture in what would seem like uncharted waters by both veterans, the chemistry worked so well that the track came across effortless. “Heavy Hook” is a dark and psychedelic track and the duo call upon the power of Sean Price to add some additional bars. Mic Tyson provides the only feature on the album, which suits me just fine. Seven Tre’oh shows that he can stand toe to toe with the hip-hop juggernaut holding his on in the end and dare I say outshining him? I dare not, but at the same time I dare. We can call it a tie cause I do not want problems with P, but even the Heltah Skeltah emcee would have to give 7eventhirty his props.
