Sean Price passed away in his sleep almost half a decade below, but he’s still missed. As a founding member of one of the best underground rap groups, Bootcamp Klick, he’s long been hailed as one of the best emcees most folks have never heard of. Now, producer Small Professor (not to be confused with rapper Large Professor) is posthumously teaming Price up with exactly the kind of rappers he’s be running with if he were still alive.
Beats consistent with the New Jack, gritty, Brooklyn sound Price helped pioneer, 86 Witness finds the likes Guilty Simpson, Your Old Droog, Curly Castro, Illa Ghee, former Bootcamp member Rock, and many more.
On “Word to Mother” we hear Price calling himself the greatest rapper alive–something he was known to do whenever he had the chance.
Don’t sleep on this. Seriously.
