Sean Price To Church With Jesus Price Superstar
Posted on January 2, 2007 by Jamie Slaughter
Along with his partner Rock, Sean Price (A.K.A. Ruck) dropped two impressive LP's as the duo Heltah Skeltah; their 1996 debut Nocturnal (which included the indelible "Leflaur Leflah Eshkoshka") and their 1998 follow-up Magnum Force. Sean is also a core member of the legendary Boot Camp Clik collective and has been a key and stand out contributor to all three of their collaborative releases; 1997's For The People, 2002's The Chosen Few and 2006's The Last Stand.
Not to be outdone, Sean proved he was more then up to the task as a solo-artist as well, as he contributed one of 2005's most critically acclaimed and talked about LP's with his solo-debut Monkey Barz, which garnished multiple accolades for Sean, including; being named Source Magazine's Indie LP of the year, being placed on Urb Magazine’s “Hot 100 list” inclusion in the Village Voice’s yearly “Pazz And Jop” poll, 2005 Indie LP of the year from Allhiphop.com and Indie LP of the year nods from Hiphopsite.com, Hiphopdx.com, Soundslam.com, MVremix.com and Sixshot.com.
The incessant clamoring and buzz for Sean’s Price’s sophomore solo-LP, Jesus Price Supastar, is about to come full-circle, as Sean will release Jesus Price Supastar on 1-30-07 courtesy of Duckdown Records. Hiphop purists have long recognized and appreciated Sean’s commanding delivery, powerful voice and clever verses and all of those attributes are on full-display with Jesus Price Supastar.
Many of the same beat makers that helped shape Monkey Barz are back on board to craft another classic LP. Little Brother’s 9th Wonder chips in five tracks and Justus League’s Khrysis also returns to put his stamp on three tracks. Also, contributing production are G-Unit’s Ill Mind, MoSS, Tommy Tee and PF Cuttin.
While fans will have to wait a bit longer for another Heltah Skeltah LP (which is in the works), Rock joins Sean Price on “P-Body” and “Church,” while BCC’s core members Buckshot (who rhymes alongside Sadat X on “Da God”) and Smif N Wesson’s Steele also make appearances. Furthermore, Little Brother’s Phonte guests on “Let It Be Known.”
After recently finishing up a tour with Ghostface, Sean will be heading back out on the road in 2007 with Jedi Mind Tricks.
Your favorite emcee is back with Jesus Price Supastar, so break out your Sunday’s best and enjoy another Sean Price classic!
