Dru Ha remembers Sean Price.
Two weeks after the tragic death of Sean Price, Duck Down CEO Dru Ha published his eulogy for the fallen emcee. Having just released Price’s posthumous album Songs in the Key of Price this week, Ha reflected on Price’s temperament on the mic.
“Sean was a lyrical warrior, a savage competitor, a true Bar Barbarian. ‘I’m the nicest rapper out duke Eff what he said’… He took pride in his writing, was self aware of his skill, and had no lack of confidence. It’s that type of tenacity that you want to see in your power forward, his position in the Fab 5, and he had no reservations complementing himself.”
Ha knew Price for 22 years and spent the bulk of the eulogy remembering Price as a person. Here’s how he finished the piece:
You were inspiring, and left us a massive catalog of music to remember you by. But make no mistake about it; we love you for the person that you were, even more so than the legend that your music will live on to define.”
