[News] Sean Price passed away this morning

Sean Price Interview on The Come Up Show I can't believe the news that Sean Price has passed away this morning, he was only 43 years old. According to reports from his family and friends, he died this morning in his sleep at his home in Brooklyn, NY. We don't know cause of death at this time. I had the pleasure to interview in 2011 and again in 2013 for TCUS 6 Year Anniversary. He was an amazing personality, emcee and his contributions of our culture with Heltah Skeltah and Boot Camp Clik will forever be remembered. I'd like to send my sincerest condolences to Duck Down and his family. I'd like you to comment on this post and tell me what Sean Price music meant to you. REST IN PEACE SEAN PRICE!
