Sean Price Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

Sean Price “Heartburn” (2005)

Produced by: 9th Wonder

Sean Price: “I went down to Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina with 9th Wonder and Khrysis [to record both Monkey Barz and Jesus Price Supastar]. Either 9th or Khrysis would pick me up from the hotel and we would drive [to the studio]. It’s so funny, his studio was connected to a church so I couldn’t smoke in there. I had to go up in the trees, the mountains in that wilderness to smoke.

“It was The Justice League’s studio, I think it was like a group thing where no one person owned it. Skyzoo was down there at the time, that’s how I met Skyzoo. Sean Don, Legacy, Joe Scudda, all of them were down there. We just vibed out and knocked joints out bang, bang, bang.”

“I met 9th at a show. What’s so funny is when I met him he was like, ‘Ya need to come on down here man.’ And he played ‘Heartburn’ in his truck. I’m like, ‘Yo, hold me that beat man. I’m coming back for that.’ And after Dru set up the trip, I got down there, and I was like, ‘Yo, you remember that beat?’ He was like, ‘Yeah, this.’ He already knew, he really held it for me. I don’t know if nobody bought it, but he really held it for me. I was like, ‘Where that beat at?’ and he said, ‘You mean this?’ And he pressed play and he was ready to shoot like, ‘Go on right there.’ I was like, ‘Wow.’ Then we knocked it up.”
