Sean Price Looking to Step Away From Music; “Mic Tyson”
“Sky's the limit…I got two more projects I'm working on, officially, then Imma take some Sean time off, improve as a man.”
Sean Price, ½ of Heltah Skeltah and a member of the Boot Camp Clik, is a rapper that has managed to maintain and keep himself within Hip Hop.
With over 15 years in the game, Price has been able to achieve many accolades and has been well respected for his lyrical abilities.
The music and the respect, however, may not be worth it all as participation in the rap game has placed a hold on his personal life and his family.
During an interview with Puna.nl, Price spoke on the price of the game and how he might need to take a step back for a little and re-evaluate what matters.
“I was really analyzing my life and it's like: I have kids, I have a family and it's kinda like I love my music more than anything else and it should be the other way around. It's supposed to be. I think after these two albums, Imma sit back and reflect and do some Sean time. That's what's next, improving as a man. Forget the Hip Hop and whatever, I think that's my next step.”
Price admits that music has overwhelmed his life as he has lost sight of his loved ones and needs to gain more clarity to what is truly important to him.
“I do this to take care of them, but I think I love the music more than I do my family, actually maybe more than God. That's why I need to really sit back and take time for myself and get my life together.”
The two upcoming projects coming from P is a collaborative effort between Price, Black Milk and Guilty Simpson, although no title or release date has been released as of yet.
On the solo tip, P released the mixtape Kimbo Price: A Prelude to Mic Tyson, which as the title entails, is the calm before the storm for his next project Mic Tyson which he has described as being ignorance at its finest, a term he has used since his 2005 debut Monkey Barz.
“I say a lot of things that are wild and when you know something is wrong, but you actually enjoy it and embrace it and say it, that's ignorance, but I do it so well. It makes for great music, hence the term ignorance at its finest.”
With two left in the tank, Price is sure to deliver and leave something worthwhile. As most know, but refuse to say, ignorance is bliss.
