RIP Sean Price

seanprice

According to reports that I have been desperately hoping were untrue, it appears that the game lost a true legend last night. My fucking fingers are trembling as I type this. This is a loss I can’t even begin to comprehend. I don’t think the loss of an artist has hit me like this since I woke up one Sunday morning in 1997 to learn that Biggie had left us.

Any visitor to this site knows the love we’ve had for P over the course of our entire 10 year run. There’ve been times when, fed up with the bullshit of the Rap internet that I only half joked that I was gonna say “fuck everybody” and turn NahRight into a Sean Price fan site. Just the other day I gleefully posted the artwork for his new mixtape, ecstatic that that the one and only Mic Tyson was about to bless us with his signature brand of Brownsville goon prose.

He was not only one of my favorite MCs of all time, I considered him a friend, and I don’t tend to make friends with rappers. To this day he’s one of the very few artists whose number I have saved in my phone. Through the years, every bit of support we ever showed him, he graciously returned right back to us. My heart goes out to his wife, three kids and the entire Duck Down family. Nobody ever put it down like this man. Rap has truly lost one of our most unique and talented voices and the definition of a stand up dude.

R.I.P. Ruck….Love and Respect to The Duck Down Family!!! #SeanPrice

    “Cookie cut it and spit it on NahRight.com”… Sean Price – As I heard the news today this rhyme was in my head. The legend has too many quotables, and I’m completely blown away today. I was just bumping “Top Tier” last night at work. Sad day for hip hop. RIP Sean Price.

    True Legend in the sense of the word. One of HipHops Pioneer’s, In an ERA where alot of artist’s were fraudulent and used different personas, Ruck kept it real, what you saw on stage was the same person you saw in the street.The definition of Keeping it 100. Time for the site to Honor the God by posting his catalog’s for all to enjoy. He maybe gone but his work will last forever.

    R.I.P. P. I used to come hear consistently to hear the new Sean P joints. He never disappointed. Neither did Nah

  31. Not Pertinent Says:

    R.I.P. Ruck. I listen to two things consistently. The Statik Selektah Freestyle that Ruck did a minute ago & the Ghostweed Skit from Pharoahe Monche. It was crazy when P did the Narduwar interview of Pharoahe Monche & named it something like Seanduwar. Hilarious dude & a real problem with those bars…
