Hip-Hop suffered a major loss when Sean P suddenly died in his sleep in early August. P’s longtime rap co-d, Rock of Heltah Skeltah penned a tribute song,”Da Streets Want Blood,” and recently discussed the emotions he went through while creating the tune.
Real Brownsville goonie goo goo tears were shed.
“This is the realest sh*t I ever wrote, and I’ve wrote some real sh*t,” Rock told WatchLOUD. “In my world and realm of people, the f*ckin Earth shattered the day P died. After I wrote ‘Da Streets Want Blood’ I couldn’t write anymore. I did not want to feel what I felt again while I wrote that. And I cheated on [that song]. I masked my sad with mad…I took that route. The mask didn’t stay up [though]. You might not hear it but when I listen to it I hear my voice cracking in the booth.”
Check back for the tribute song’s proper video later today.
Rest in power Sean P.
