New York rap veteran Nas has paid his respect to the memory of late hip-hop artist Sean Price this week on social media.
Nasty Nas shouted out Price on his birthday Thursday (March 17).
Back in September, Terror Squad leader Fat Joe reflected on Price passing away.
“You know what, life goes on and it’s unfortunate because we have to deal with deaths and it’s sad. We deal with it all the time. In hip hop we just lost Sean Price, a legend. It’s about staying strong, it’s about just moving on and keeping the memory with you and keep pushing forward because the minute you reach out and dwell in the darkness, you’re through.” (SCMP)
Last August, Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller released a posthumous Price track.
