Sean Price f/ Tek “Onion Head” (2005)

Produced by: Khrysis

Sean Price: “Me, Tek, Steele, and Buckshot were in North Carolina working. I had did a song called ‘Bye Bye’ earlier and then my friend came by and brought me some shrooms, but he had them in chocolate fishes. I take Shrooms like every leap year. [Laughs.] That’s how often I do it. I just sit back and enjoyed my movie. That’s what I call it, the movie. So I ate like three of the chocolate fishes and this beat was on. He said, ‘Nah, that’s Scudda’s beat.’ I said, ‘Scudda, can I get the beat please?’ He goes, ‘Alright.’

“I just started writing. I wrote the two verses quick because I was feeling the shit. Now, I’m waiting for Steele, but I can feel the shrooms kicking in. I’m like, ‘Once these shrooms kick in all the way, I’m not gonna be able to do this song.’ So I stopped Steele in the middle of his session and I’m like, ‘Yo son, let me please do this song.’ He said, ‘Alright, go ahead,’ and I did the whole song in one take.

“It was so funny because on the second verse I was talking about Steele. Steele was just sitting in the corner with a whole big gallon bottle of knotty head, Seagrams, and he was just drinking. [Laughs.] He had a big bottle of Seagrams just tearing that shit down, guzzling it. I looked at him and I was like, ‘‘Grabbing the Gin/Drunk rappers need to grab on the pen/Write some ill shit bitch, let the madness begin.’ I admitted to him that I was rapping about him and he’s like, ‘Yeah, I’m grinding. This fire.’ [Laughs.]”
