Product Description

Sean Price is aka Ruck, 1/2 of the successful rap group Heltah Skeltah, and one of the lead and most popular rappers from the mighty Boot Camp Clik. In 2005 Sean Price released his first solo album Monkey Barz which earned him independent album and artist of the year honors from the Source Magazine and All Hip Hop.com. Sean Price became a household name in the Underground circuit, touring nationally with GhostFace (Wu-Tang) and Boot Camp Clik. Sean Price was invited to rhyme alongside other Independent heavyweighta Immortal Technique, Jedi Mind Tricks, and Little Brother to name just a few. While Heltah Skeltah has solid Soundscan History scanning over 300,000 units over their career, Sean Price has now officially made a name for himself as a solo Artist. Sean Price is Jesus Price!

Back in the '90s heydey of the Boot Camp Clik (Black Moon, Smif-N-Wessun), few would have guessed that the rapper formerly known as Ruck from Heltah Skeltah would emerge as the Clik's most viable star. It may be because Price has had to fight his way back from recording limbo, taking the mix-CD and independent label route, but the maturing process has only enhanced Price's lyrical skills and mic presence. With Jesus Price Superstar, it's clear that the success of 2005's Monkey Barz was no fluke: Price shows a great deal of charm and versatility in attacking, aggressive songs like "Cardiac," and "One," or slipping into a smoother flow for "Oops Upside Your Head" or "Hearing Aid." Despite including at least eight different producers, most notably 9th Wonder and Khrysis, the album's sound is more consistent than you'd expect: 9th Wonder and others favor soul/jazz-derived tracks but there's plenty of thunder here to compliment Price's rumbling baritone. The title of the CD might raise some eyebrows but Price's resurrection is still something to marvel at. --Oliver Wang

Sean Price has proven once again that he is a big force in Hip Hop. Just from listening to his older work as Ruck and his New work as Sean Price, you can tell he has always had great respect and understanding for hip hop. Even with all of the "New Rappers" that seem to be able to get money by making dance instructional videos and basicly taking the easy way out, Price has never switch up his style He is a lyrical mad man and this is evident on songs like "P-Body" and "One" another way he has been able to connect with the listeners is by not being afraid to tell the real story. You can take a look into his world of failure when listening to "Mess You Made" and he also brings back that good old punch you in our face and then laugh at you style with the song "Church" which features his crime partner Rock. This album is a MUST have, so start typing your credit card numbers in and cop this album.

Sean Price's sophomore solo effort, Jesus Price Supastar, is the first notable hip-hop release of the year; and he doesn't dissapoint in providing the lonely month of January with an outstanding effort. Price's first album, Monkey Barz, was definitely the standout release of the three BCC albums that were meant to bring Duck Down records back to relevance, surprassing mediocre records from hip-hop legends like Smif-N-Wessun, and a dream-team consisting of Buckshot & 9th Wonder. Some may state that the reason Sean succeeded so well on Monkey Barz is because he took the common man approach; something only one other emcee(a man whose name coincidentally rhymes with Price's) have ever taken up the representation of. Sean Price wasn't attempting some type of Obie Trice gimmick infringement though; dude was just being real. It's rare to find an emcee who boasts about being 'the brokest rapper alive,' but these claims only add to Price's appeal.

It's no surprise that Sean P spent a good amount of time touring with Ghostface last year, because Jesus Price Supastar is quickly becoming the Fishscale of 2007; a dope album released early in the year, that is almost sure to go on everyone's top ten list when '07 draws to a close. Though there's still eleven months left to go, it's hard to imagine that there'll be ten other albums released this year to trump Jesus Price's amazing sophomore effort. While Sean P's debut was an outstanding album, it takes a rare breed of emcee to release a second album even iller than their first. Another similarity P-Body's newest release shares with Ghostface's Fishscale is the indy dream-producing team; 9th Wonder, Khrysis, and even Pete Rock all contribute beats to the album, and each producer gives the perfect backdrop to Sean's nasty street tales.

With the bleak state of (mainstream) rap these days, Sean Price latest is effort is a welcome reprise. Good production, strong beats, but most importantly solid and versatile lyircal content. Very back to basics NY style flow and song construct. Sean Price's lyrics have a good mix of street grit, self-deprecating humor, and real street tales. That said, his album isn't the usual laundry list of I did this, I shot him, and sold that. A concept of story telling and innovative thought that is almost dead, so if you like Ghost, Jedi Mind, Cunninlynguists, Pumpkinhead, even Nas, you'll enjoy. (Someone please send to 50 and Dipset). Liked another reviewers comparison to Ghost, both for consistency and effort in all songs on the album - almost no throwaways. One of my boy's said he could hear "SEAN P" shout as background in any song and feel it and I'd have to agree. Highly reccomended for rap heads looking for good, innovative production, good flow, and versatile lyrical content...

Sean Price: Jesus Price Superstar

What can I say? Hot rhymes, dope beats. To let you know what type of jack move this album is on, one line, among many, that particularly sticks out: 'Lie to the cops and tell the truth in the booth, instead you tell the truth to the cops and lie in the booth'...umm....album is basically packed with non-boring wordplay like this and hot beats. What more could you ask for? Lot of people wanna know if this album is as hot as Monkey Bars? Truth is: they are 2 different albums that can't even be compared. What makes this album stand out from Monkey Bars is it's 100 times harder and more creative than Monkey Bars. Sophmore Slump? Not over here. . If you want to hear someone that can still rap, do yourself a favor and pick this up? Sean Price is the Ghostface of the Boot Camp Click. True heads will know what I mean by this statement.

This is Sean Price's follow up to "Monkey Barz" and is quite possibly the best hip hop album is recent history. Easily the best boot camp album of the 21st century. Sean Price continues to step up his game lyrically and makes ignorant street music sound like a masterpiece. Teaming up with the Justus League once again on the production tip (9th Wonder and Khrysis) help to make this at least the best album of 2007. Must have for true school hip hoppers!

Not many rappers or emcees have a flow or the knack for wordplay that can rival Sean Price. On his latest release, he holds down the album with strong lyrics that take your attention away from some spotty production. Standouts like "Mess You Made", "", and "" make the album worth the asking price and there are other solid cuts like "" and "". The production is handled by Illmind, 9th Wonder, PF Cuttin', Khrysis, and a few others and for the most part the production is solid -- even if it is spotty and uneven from time to time.

The first problem to jump out at me was the repitition of some of the production. There are dope beats on the album, but the production on joints like "Let It Be Known", "You Already Know", and "Hearing Aid" makes them skip material in my book. "Oops Upside Your Head" and "Church" aren't necessarily bad songs, but you'll forget about them once the new release buzz wears off. The thing that makes me listen to ANY of the previously mentioned songs is because P. rocks the mic and commands respect with his wit, flow, and wordplay. In fact, his vocals are what make this album worth hearing.

Jesus Price Supastar is a solid, yet somewhat unspectacular, release from one of BCC's finest. The lyrics make the album, but if you've been down since the Duck Down rebirth then this is sure to please. Newcomers should cop Monkey Bars before diving into this one. This is still a good release, I just expected more. I recommend checking this album out.

Standout Tracks: Stop, Mess You Made feat. Block McCloud, Da God feat. Sadat X & Buckshot (My Favorite), Violent, King Kong, Cardiac feat. Buckshot, Rustee Juxx, & Flood, Directors Cut, and Intro (Jesus Price)
