R.I.P. Sean Price

Hip Hop lost another one today. Reports this morning confirm the passing of Sean Price. He was 43. Details remain uncovered about how Price passed, except that it was in his sleep late last night.

“It is with beyond a heavy heart that Duck Down Music is sadly confirming that Sean Price passed away early this morning in his Brooklyn apartment, Saturday, August 8th, 2015,” reads a statement from his reps. “The cause of death is currently unknown, but it was reported that he died in his sleep. He’s survived by his wife, and his three children.

The hip hop community is already pouring out some heartfelt condolences. We of course do the same and thank Sean Price, or as you may have heard him as Ruck or 0.5 of Heltah Skeltah, for his many contributions to the culture.

R.I.P. Ruck….Love and Respect to The Duck Down Family!!! #SeanPrice
