With Random Axe (Sean Price's supergroup along with Black Milk and Guilty Simpson) dropping their debut album on June 14 (read an album preview here)—and Price's long-awaited Mic Tyson album still on the way—we got down with Ruck of Heltah Skeltah to talk about what we feel are his 25 most essential songs. The Boot Camp Clik veteran talks about the chip he had on his shoulder while recording Jesus Price Supastar, how he used to sell drugs and hustle Motorola two-ways, and why he regrets the video for "Everything Is Heltah Skeltah." Beyond that, he also recalls growing up with a mother who was both a drug addict and a numbers runner, how he took shrooms before recording "Onion Head," and how he doesn't want to be known as the brokest rapper you know anymore. It's P!
