sean price the brokest rapper you know, nice to meet you
Sean Price – Jesus Price Supastar
YES. New Sean Price. And its about time since this thing got pushed back twice (what doesn't these days though?). On the whole, this album is real good... hopefully he'll get some recognition with this one because he's still virtually unknown to any casual hip hop fan. The first single (if we can even call it that, it ain't like he shootin a video for it) “P-Body” isn't a particularly radio friendly joint but damn does he go hard. You know, most rappers rap about guns and shootin people and you're like ya whatever okay.. Sean P raps about that shit and you believe him because he actually SOUNDS LIKE he would body a dude for looking at him crooked. That track is still real good I just don't hear it getting a lot of spins. The production really stands out from his first retail here too. A lot less raw gully sounding beats and a lot more soulful grandiose sounding shit, which really works for him. There's some serious lyrical depth here too, amongst songs about sellin coke and beatin people up, theres songs about killing yourself (Mess You Made), while other songs go in between deep serious topics and drug sales and violence. Song #4, Cardiac, in particular sounds like some shit that could blow up on the radio. In fact, I'd go as far as saying if it had the producer name Kanye West on the exact same beat instead of an unknown like Illmind (even if he is signed to G-Unit he aint a big name producer), that it WOULD blow up on the radio, since it's about sellin drugs and beating dudes up which is obviously what people are feeling in rap these days, content wise. 9th Wonder lends 5 tracks to this one but honestly, I felt like his were the weakest on the album, production wise anyway, which is surprising as hell but they are by no means whack, the other producers that I had honestly basically never heard of just brought it better.
Overall, this jawn is definitely an 7.5 of 10 (roughly an XL if you wanna go by that). I'd definitely say now after a few listens that I like it better than Monkey Barz, but no song on this touches “Boom Bye Yeah” for me. So I think that had something to do with my reluctance to call this one better at first.
So yeah, go cop this album on Jan 30th cuz even 2 retails deep, “Sean Price: The brokest rapper you know”
