Sean Price Is Right…

price is right

props to ncberko for the photochop

I met up with Sean Price a few weeks ago to do a little grocery shopping. I thought that a play on the ‘Price Is Right’ theme would be funny. I didn’t think to myself as to whether this was some shit that Ruck had to hear from kids all of his life. Even though I have known this dude for over twenty years I realize now how little I know about him.

Sean Price is definitely a smart dude, but also a sensitive and considerate man [ll]. You don’t expect to connect those ideas with a hardcore rapper. I should be smarter than that. My father was one of the baddest motherfuckers I ever knew and he was also the most considerate and caring dudes I will ever meet. Sean Price is cut from a similar cloth.

I wanted to do a series of videos with Ruck (Sean P) to allow him to speak his mind. His recollections of growing up in the projects with a dysfunctional family are priceless. With all the things that would make any of us assume he was disadvantaged are where he lets us in and shows us how took that strife and made it work out for his gain.

The biggest credit that I have to give Sean Price is not about how well he rhymes, but about how hard he works. God gave him his mind. Sean P returns the blessing by putting in the constant work to get better as an emcee and as a man. His latest mixtape, Kimbo Price, was released today. I’m sure its available somewhere that you can help support his efforts.

Do that much for him. I’m sure he would do it for you.

Have A Baby By Me?

Fisty Scent – Baby By Me’ featuring Ne-Yo

This is one of my favorite songs right now. The beat is perfect for the nightclubs and whenever the song comes on the women rush to the dancefloor. Ne-Yo on the chorus is of course the murderous element. Despite the fact that this song is a surefire hit I had to dig a little deeper than most would to see how real Fisty Scent kept it on a lyrical level.

Rap is in its core essence lyrical braggadocio. The artist establishes their dominance by exclaiming feats that are unique to only them. In this song Fisty Scent not only decrees his sexual prowess but the idea that if he is allowed to impregnate the listener they will become a millionaire. From the outset I’m sure those rhymes are super attractive to the female fans of Fisty Scent, especially in this shrinking U.S. economy, but what are the real-life ramifications of winning this lyrical lottery?

Hands down, Fisty Scent is one of the shrewdest artists in the music business. He has created an empire for himself while still wearing his du-rag into business meetings. Even Ghey-Z had to ‘change clothes’ to increase his wealth. Fisty Scent has leveraged his thug persona to cross over to marketing that has no connection to street life. Vitamin Water? That was a coup that no other rapper or Hip-Hop impresario had considered. Everyone else was chasing liquor branding oppurtunites and silly clothing line endeavors.

So don’t think that Fisty Scent is going to issue this million dollars in lump sum format. I can imagine that Fisty will issue the money in 18 annual payments of $55,556, or to better amortize his investment $4,629.63 in monthly installments until the million is finally excised. That doesn’t exactly amount to anything fabulous for the mother of the Fisty Scent seed now does it? Especially after the taxes for these monies have been calculated and paid. That isn’t even considering all the costs associated with child rearing.

Healthcare costs for both mother and child have been skyrocketing when compared to the Consumer Price Index measure. Healthcare will be the single greatest expenditure (aside from education) when you consider bringing up a thug’s baby. Surgery from bullet and stab wounds can be very costly. Also note that the contract becomes voided if the child dies prior to their 18th birthday (R.I.P. Derrion Albert).

After education and healthcare requirements we still have to consider childcare because the mother of this kid is still going to need to put in hours at the stripclub in order to supplement her income if she wants to clothe and feed the seed.

So by having a baby with Fisty Scent what you are really agreeing to is a legal and moral debt obligation. Fisty Scent’s arrangement barely covers half the costs associated with raising his child. At this rate you might could do better for yourself having a child with me.

At least my union benefits cover dental costs.

The first official visual from the ‘Silk Pyramids’ project (Meyhem Lauren x Buckwild DITC) shows us Meyhem is still giving less than a single fux when it comes to enjoying breakfast off a stripper’s ass.

Silk Pyramids is here if you don’t have it already.

TIMELESS TRUTH: Dominican Diner

Hip Hop “purists” have been blessed with an emergence of a modern group with the intention of preserving the art. The Queens representatives, Timeless Truth, had been actively making noise in the New York hip hop scene. With previous projects such as Scene of the Rhyme and the critically acclaimed EP Brugal & Presidentes the duo has stepped up to the plate to fill the void in the modern era for those patiently waiting to hear return of the boom bap.

Timeless Truth debut album, Rock-It Science (produced By RTNC), solidified their emergence in the game as one of Queens’ top tier groups. The brothers separately showcased their own skills in the music videos “What A Life” and “Alliance” proving that they are more than capable of independently holding down the reputation of a what it entails to be a Queens emcee. The visuals provide a modern day in the life of the New York natives, whether it be traveling down the boulevard or playing dominoes on the rooftop. However, the tracks contain a certain essence that is rarely evoked in recent times.


After setting off music videos to the Rock-It Science album the two emcees linked up with Hip-Hop ambassador Large Professor. Large Pro accompanies the duo in the debut single off the impending album Cold Wave. SuperBadSolace and Oprime39 scoop the Professor up after schooling the youth at John Bowne High and remind us that Queens is home to some of Hip Hop’s most monumental rhyme writers. This is not the first time the brothers have been in the work environment with hip hop legends. In the fairly short amount of time on the scene, they have gained the respect of some of hip hop’s most elite figures. From the gate, they managed to gain the attention of Mafioso Rap pioneer, Kool G Rap.

The track, “World Renown”, marked their emergence to the scene with a made man (a track which would subsequently be leaked by Dallas Penn in a manner that was just as monumental of a leak as that of Edward Snowden’s). Sean Price has also been noted as guest feature on each of their releases up to this point. The two have been a closely associated with other prominent up-and-coming New York emcees such as Roc Marciano, Meyhem Lauren, and Action Bronson. The unveiling of “Wavelength”, however is not the way OPrime39 and Solace decided to finish up their 2013 year.

The brothers recently were invited to perform on Sway Calloway’s MTVJAMS program RAPFIX. The two emcees came prepared and performed exclusive never before heard lyrics. Just a day after their performance on RapFixLive, the hip hop group announced the forthcoming project Dominican Diner EP, which is set to be released on 6/10. The announcement came at the wrapping up point of 2013 with a leaked track titled “Out of the Loop”(Prod. by FAFU). Just a few days ago, they released the second single off the approaching EP, titled “Trife”.
