My Style Is Impetuous: Sean Price & Pharoahe Monch - "BBQ Sauce" (Duck Down)


Sean Price is a former member of 90's Underground Rap crews, Heltah Skeltah/Boot Camp Clik (who supposedly worked on 2pac's last project). My old Shop Rite buddy, Jarrad Jenkins first turned me onto Sean Price around like 2005-06, who had only released Monkey Barz and Donkey Sean, Jr. [mixtape] @ that point. Price's third solo album, Mic Tyson has been in-the-works since 2009 and after numerous delays and pushed back dates, Duck Down finally unleashed the album back in October '12. Evidence & DJ Babu produced the latest video-single pulled from Mic Tyson's 15-song tracklist, "BBQ Sauce." It does a pretty damn great job @ showcasing the Brownsville, BKLYN native's criminally under-rated sharp tongue, un-matched cadence, and witty rhyme schemes.


Pharoahe Monch co-stars in it's companion Todd Angkasuwan-directed music video, which super-imposes Sean Mandela into a number of historical events, TV shows, school sports, etc: NASA "Aural Redenbocker," Jeopardy Championship, An Evening with The Rolling Stones, Johnny Carson, Miss America vs. Miss USA Pageant, and 3 Nobel Prize wins. "This @SeanMandela x @pharoahemonch video for "BBQ Sauce" is the greatest video since "Thriller" [though]," lamented Ghetto Fabulous blogger BIG GHOST. If you haven't heard Mic Tyson by now, maybe you should re-evaluate your life a little bit because it's seriously one of the best Hip-Hop albums I've heard in the past 5... even 10 years!
