Sean Price is known for his sharp wordplay, wit, and humor. For years, P was responsible for dropping lyrical bombs as one-half of Heltah Skeltah in the Boot Camp Clik and later on in Random Axe.
These days, the 40-year-old MC has found his success in his solo career with two solid projects under his belt—2005’s Monkey Barz and 2007’s Jesus Price Superstar. Both of those brought his unrelenting style and commanding presence on the mic full circle. It’s the reason why so many hip-hop fans have been patiently waiting for the past five years for P to drop his next LP, Mic Tyson.
While the Duck Down veteran promises an October 30 release date, he invited a few journalists to preview his third solo album at the Cornerstone offices. He walked in with MacBook in hand and immediately cracked a joke about the complementary pizza and beer. “What is this? College?” After giving the table a round of daps, he sat down and pressed play on his 15-track effort.
P didn’t stop the session once the album was over. He shared snippets of the three iTunes bonus tracks, including a notable feature by Freddie Gibbs on a track called “I Remember.” One of the lines—“Fucking with an African thug/When I was 12, I killed a lion”—stood out, but that’s just a small dose of Mic Tyson’s excellence. Read on to find out what else is in store.
