As Sean Price‘s family and the entire hip-hop community continues to mourn his tragic passing, some are taking it upon themselves to revisit his brilliant work as a lyricist. On Monday morning, archival footage of Price getting busy during a freestyle cypher made its way onto Youtube–and it’s brilliant.
The clip comes from a two year old “Tragedy Khadafi and Friends” Boiler Room session that was filmed at Goblins Social Club and features Price taking his turn on the mic beside Large Professor, Tragedy, Royal Flush and Starvin B, all of whom turn out excellent performances. Still, it’s Price whose showing proves to be most captivating, not just on account of recent events, but because of the passion he put into every single syllable. “Once I hear Large Professor throw something on crazy I’ll come out and freestyle,” Big Ruck said during the session.
As Price’s family and friends continue to grapple with the loss of a man who was not only an artist, but a father, brother, son and husband, a crowdfund has been established in his name. Donate to it here, and watch him do what he did best below. RIP P–you are gone but never forgotten.
