I can’t believe the news that Sean Price has passed away this morning, he was only 43 years old. According to reports from his family and friends, he died this morning in his sleep at his home in Brooklyn, NY. We don’t know cause of death at this time. I had the pleasure to interview in 2011 and again in 2013 for TCUS 6 Year Anniversary. He was an amazing personality, emcee and his contributions of our culture with Heltah Skeltah and Boot Camp Clik will forever be remembered. I’d like to send my sincerest condolences to Duck Down and his family. I’d like you to comment on this post and tell me what Sean Price music meant to you.
REST IN PEACE SEAN PRICE!
Early in the morning on August 4th, Mike McKoy (an unknown connection) exposes the truth behind the Drake vs. Meek Mill story with a number of detailed tweets. No confirmation on whether this is true or not, however the story is well written and makes a lot of sense.
1. Meek Mill found out from DJ Drama about Drake having reference tracks literally MONTHS ago

2. Meek Mill confronted Drake about it and the two had an argument. Drake felt disrespected because he felt he was doing RICO as a favor… — #Juice♏️ (@mmckoy) August 4, 2015
3. Meek Mill’s homecoming concert comes and Drake doesn’t show up which infuriates Meek because Drake was supposed to be the Celebrity guest
— #Juice♏️ (@mmckoy) August 4, 2015
4. RICO had already been done and recorded well before this point so Meek Mill still decides to put it on his album — #Juice♏️ (@mmckoy) August 4, 2015
