Sean Price 1972 - 2015

Sean Price aka Ruck

By now, I'm sure most of you will have heard the awful news of the passing of Sean Price of Boot Camp Clik. The only details that have been disclosed are that he passed away in his sleep in the early hours of Saturday 8th August. He was only 43.

It's taken a couple of days to digest but I wanted to share a few words of my own. An influx of tributes and words about Ruck flooded social media over the weekend and rightly so. It seems whenever any artist is taken so soon that nothing but positive things can be said about the individual. This time it's legit.

Sean Price was loved. His music was and is remarkable but this time it's more than music. Anyone who knew him personally or met him at shows or in interviews will attest to how charismatic, hilarious and humble he was. He definitely wasn't humble in his rhymes though!

I was lucky enough to meet him at his show in Manchester late last year and spend some time with him on his early morning trip back to the airport. I tagged along to make sure Didjit didn't fall asleep at the wheel! Although P had little to no sleep after his show, he was nothing but gracious and funny the whole time. I'm happy I had those few moments with him.

He made amazing music, was a top tier lyricist, had a great live show and had the big personality to boot. I think many would agree that he is a massive loss to Hip-Hop and the friends and family he left behind. Rest in peace, P.

His new mixtape "Songs In The Key Of Price" is due to drop in a couple of weeks which makes the timing even more tragic. Check Peter Rosenberg's Real Late tribute mix below.

Breaking Bad - The Final 8 Episodes


Not long now until we see the return of Breaking Bad for the final eight episodes of season 5. The penny has dropped for Hank and I can't wait to see what happens next. Walter has dug such a hole for himself and it looks like his time is up.

Anyone who hasn't watched the show before might want to skip watching the video below. It's basically Breaking Bad from the start to where we are now, in 9 minutes. So don't spoil it for yourself if you plan on watching it some day.

Breaking Bad returns August 11th on AMC in the US. It should follow shortly after in the UK.

Check out the "Epic Refresher" below.

Adrian Younge & Souls Of Mischief Album Announced


Adrian Younge has a new concept album on the way. After his collaboration with Ghostface Killah on their "12 Reasons To Die" project, he'll next be behind the boards with Souls Of Mischief on mic duties. It will also be narrated by A Tribe Called Quest's Ali Shaheed Muhammed.

He had a few words to say about the concept album in a recent interview with XXL Magazine.

"…It’s a project that if somebody misses the sounds of 93 ’til Infinity meets The Low End Theory meets De La Soul Is Dead. If somebody misses that kind of sound, they’ll be happy to hear this album because it goes back to that time, you know. Kind of like how the Ghostface album [12 Reasons To Die] kind of went back to that time. And I love both styles of music back then, so I’m very, very excited.
“And it’s also a concept album too—Souls of Mischief almost gets killed by some dude that was just crazy and the whole album just starts off with this incident, and then it blossoms into these different stories that are a result of this volatile incident. And that’s basically what that album is about."

The album is due in September on RZA's Soul Temple Records.
