Saturday Brooklyn rapper Sean Price died in his sleep.
Price got his start in the music world within the group Heltah Skeltah before climbing in the underground hip hop community as a noted solo act.
As a solo artist, Price released “Monkey Barz” in 2005 and “Jesus Price Supastar” in 2007.
Price’s latest record, “Mic Tyson,” premiered in 2012 and he was working on a mixtape, “Songs in the Key of Price” slated to be published by Duck Down Music on Aug. 21.
“Sean Price went from being a childhood hero of mine to your great friend. He was the most competitive MC I’ve ever met & kept me on my game,” rapper Talib Kweli wrote.
Price is survived by his lovely wife and three kids, according to his representatives.
