blame it on JES7 August 15, 2015

It’s been one full week since the news of Sean Price’s untimely passing was dropped upon us all. It was like seething napalm tearing through the soul when I read the press release in my inbox that Saturday morning/afternoon, and I was in utter shock and disbelief. Actually, I still am – as are most fans.

Although the God Ruck has left our realm in the physical form, he has left behind a legacy and classic discography that will remain ingrained in our lives forever; as the First Law of Thermodynamics states: “Energy can be neither created nor be destroyed, but it transforms from one form to another.”

Sean P The All Time Great, thanks in part to graffiti legend MERES ONE has now been immortalized on a wall on the corner of Bergen and Kingston in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

Up top, check out a very moving, behind-the-scenes documentary short of MERES ONE putting together the mural with moral support from Ruck’s peers and widow Bernadette. If you’d like to donate to Price’s family, you can still do so by visiting this link.

Do remember, P!’s Songs in the Key of Price arrives August 21st. Pick up a hard copy via DRuck Down or pre-order on iTunes.

EDIT: During last night’s episode of The Tonight Show and following Jimmy Fallon’s monologue, The Roots paid tribute to Sean Price with a short, but sweet intermission, performing one of P!’s more well known solo joints, “Onion Head.” Watch the brief clip below.
