Less than a week after the tragic loss of hip-hop veteran Sean Price, a new song in the form of “Planet Apes” has premiered online.
The new anthem, which is expected to be a part of an upcoming Duck Down Music release, is produced by PF Cuttin.
The hip-hop community was rocked August 8th by the sudden passing of rapper Sean Price, who died in his native Brooklyn at the age of 43. At the time of his death, the Boot Camp Clik rapper also known as Ruck was putting the finishing touches on a new mixtape titled Songs in the Key of Price. That mixtape will arrive August 21st through Duck Down Music, and Rolling Stone exclusively presents “Planet Apes,” a track off that upcoming collection. (Rolling Stone)
