It was a Devastating time for the Hip Hop community when in 2015, MC Sean Price unexpectedly passed away. Heralded for his witty punchlines, fierce bars and descriptive metaphors, the Brooklyn-bred rapper earned the respect of his peers throughout the course of his career. On August 8, which marks the two-year anniversary of the Duck Down legend’s death, his fourth studio album, Imperius Rex, is to be released.
In anticipation of the posthumous release, the Duck Down camp has shared the tracklist and official cover art alongside an animated video for the title track, which portrays Price as a king of cartoon gorillas. The 16-track project is packed with all new music and features notable MCs like DOOM, Styles P, Smif N Wessun, Method Man, Freeway, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, and the late Prodigy.
