*UPDATE: You can now donate funds to Sean’s family right here.
Legendary Brooklyn MC Sean Price, one half of Heltah Skeltah and one third of Random Axe, reportedly died in his sleep this morning (August 8). He was 43 years old. His cause of death is unknown, but DJ Premier was the first to reveal the heartbreaking news on his Instagram page just an hour ago.
Price’s latest (and final) album, Songs In The Key Of Price, is slated for release on August 21. His sense of humor, big heart, and uncompromising nature will live on through us and through his music. Rest in Power.
