How The Gods Chill: @SeanMandela Price - "STFU, Part 2" (Duck Down Records)
The Chain Gang somehow managed to seamlessly splice together a bunch of stop-motion [animation] clips to construct Sean Price's latest music video, "STFU (Part 2)." Before it's all said and done, we see Super-Price courageously fending off a pack of angry killer apes with a microphone... getting some calcium fortification, pilot a spaceship, re-enact a couple album covers, run through the jungle, etc. All of Sean Price's milk-fueled hi-jinx were animated by crafty illustrators, Haroon Gilian & Whitney Alexander; "STFU (Part 2)" will appear on Price's long-awaited Mic Tyson album, along with previously-released tracks "Haraam" and "I See." Rome York directed and released a quick, 1:30-minute music video last week to go along with "I See," which was in fact pre-empted by "Sean Price Plays Tennis" back in early Sept.
Duck Down Records are finally gearing up to liberate Mic Tyson on Oct. 30th and it's set to feature a handful of intricately-woven guest verses: Pharoahe Monch, Freddie Gibbs, Buckshot, Ruste Juxx, and Ill Bill ... In addition to skilled production work from 9th Wonder, The Alchemist, Evidence, Statik Selektah, and DJ Babu (Dilated Peoples). Mic Tyson seems to be the third [and final?] chapter in a loose 3-part trilogy that dates back to Monkey Barz and Jesus Price Supastar (2007). Oh, let it be known that Sean Price is often regarded as one of the most prolific/criminally under-rated emcees in Indie Hip-Hop - Having worked with nearly everyone from Guilty Simpson & Black Milk to Hardcore Punk band, Cold World. It almost seems like Sean Price has been on a boxing kick in recent years, since his last full-blown project, immediately preceding Mic Tyson was quite cleverly titled "Kimbo Price."
