View Full Version : Sean Price "Im Done" in refrence to rapping

06-07-2007, 01:04 PM

Whatís up?

Iím doing better, man. I was sick for awhile. I was having some voice problems recently. Iím just getting my old voice back. With all the touring and climate changes, I was getting sick and it took a toll on my voice. I was scared to the point where I thought my **** wasnít going to come back. I went to the hospital and saw a throat specialist. They gave me some stuff to take and they told me to shut the **** up.

Sean P canít lose his voice.

Yeah, I know, man. When you hear the mixtape, youíll hear the voice change. Iím not going to front, I did the mixtape with a ****ed up voice because I just wanted to get something out. Youíll hear the different voice changes, but donít worry, thatís all me.

You might have to call DMC for some advice.

I donít know. I donít know if I should call DMC. No disrespect, but I donít think his voice sounds too hot either. I donít know if I would take his advice, no disrespect.

In his HipHopGame Journal, Black Milk talked about how you were going out to Detroit last week to work on the album your doing with him and Guilty Simpson. How was your trip?

It was cool. Big up to Black Milk, Guilty, Hex Murder, Trick Trick and King Gordy and everybody else out there that showed me love. They picked me up at the hotel, took me to the studio and dropped me off at the end and I did my thing.

Howís the album with Black Milk and Guilty Simpson coming?

You know what? I canít really call it right now. The beats are banging. We laid down some good verses. Guilty was out in LA doing his Stones Throw thing, so he has to come in and lay his verses down. We have three complete songs and everything else is incomplete until Guilty gets done. Weíll see how it turns out.

How was it working with Black Milk?

Black is cool as hell. Heís about his business. He handles his handle. I canít complain.

What are his beats bringing out of you?

One thing Black mentioned to me was he was like, ĎYo, I know you and Guilty are kind of cut from the same cloth as far as lyrics and subject matter.í We both talk that tough ****. We could have made an ďIíll **** you upĒ album with my version and the Detroit version, but we got some concept records that might shock a few people. Black brought that out. And with Black rhyming on some of the joints, he breaks up me and Guiltyís rah-rah-rah ****.

How do you think the album will turn out?

I think itís going to be a winner. I kind of slept on Black as a lyricist. I knew Black could rhyme. I have his album, but I kind of slept on him as a lyricist. He really goes in. He was never wack to me though. I was just thinking producer first, MC second. Heís dope at both. I was personally sleeping on him. Heís dope.

Howís your Master P mixtape coming?

Itís coming out real good. July 24 is when it drops. Thatís the date. Itís cool. Itís a regular mixtape with me rhyming over instrumentals and all that. And then I have some original joints on there that were never officially released that we put on there. Thereís somethiní-teen tracks on there.

Whatís the concept behind the Master P title?

Itís just another nickname like P-Body and Sean P. I feel like Iím the master right now, so I called it Master P. No disrespect to the man Percy Miller. Heís dope and heís an OG in the game. I just feel like Iím the master at what I do right now, hence the title Master P. Plus I got the old pen and pixel cover to give it that flavor!

Like the old No Limit covers?

I always liked those ****s! All of those ****s were extra! Those were always extra, so it was like, Ď**** it, letís do something like that.í

Howís the Boot Camp Clik compilation Casualties of War coming?

Itís a bunch of songs that we never put out. Thatís not the new Boot Camp album. I want to set the record straight on that. But itís still dope. But itís not the new Boot Camp album.

Are you working on a new Heltah Skeltah album?

Yeah. Weíre working on it, but weíre just taking our time. I know people are like, ĎWhatís going on?í but **** that. Weíre not putting it out until itís right. If it never comes out, then it means it was never right. We want to make this **** right. Weíre taking our time and people are throwing us beats. Thereís no rush. Weíre not rushing. I know the people want it but weíre not going to disappoint them. Weíre taking our time with it.

Are you happy with how your last album Jesus Price Superstar did?

No. Iím never happy with the way my albums do. But Iím not mad. I donít think any artist is ever completely happy with how their **** does. No artist is ever going to be completely happy, but to each his own. You drop an album and then you move on. But at Duck Down, we do what we can. Iím not blaming nobody. It did what it did and Iím happy with it. Thereís always room for improvement. We put that out and we move on. Thatís it.

You must be happy with the response from fans and critics.

Yeah. What I just said, Iím not talking about what the people say. The reception from critics, they showed me love this time. Iím not mad at that at all. I want to say, ďThank youĒ to all the fans and critics who showed me love. Thank you.

Your stock as a solo artist has risen incredibly fast. Are you at all surprised by that?

Yes and no. Iím surprised. I donít really know how to explain it, but yeah. I always knew it was good music, but I didnít know the people were going to appreciate it like that. Iím surprised, yeah, but Iím not because I know the work I put in. It goes both ways.

Howís your third solo album coming?

I havenít started it yet, but itís called Mic Tyson. Iím going to get to working on it. Even with that one, Iím going to take my time with it because itís the last Sean P album, man. Iím trying to make sure itís where Iím going. I want to go out with a bang.

Why is it the last Sean P album?

Because I said so.

Are you done as a solo artist after Mic Tyson?

Iím done.


Completely. Iím done.

No more Heltah Skeltah or Boot Camp?

Iím done.

Did anything specific happen to lead you to this decision?

No. Itís time to move on. Iím done. Thereís no beef, no riff and itís nothing contractual. Itís nothing. Iím done. I had enough of this ****.

Do you want to get into other things?

I want to move on. Iím tired of this ****. ďI love rap but I hate the game, matter of fact, *****, whatís my name? P-Body.Ē Yeah, you heard the song. Iím ****ing done.

What part of the game bothers you the most?

Everything. Itís not one thing. Itís everything. The only thing Iím happy about is my management team, Duck Down. Other than that, I donít like nothing. Iím ready to get the **** out of here.

When will Mic Tyson come out?

I donít know. I donít even have a date yet. I know after the Heltah Skeltah album is completed. I pay attention to the project Iím working on. I canít do three albums at once because nothing gets done. Iím paying full attention to this Black Milk and Guilty Simpson ****. Iím going to knock that out. Bong. Then Iím going to finish the Heltah Skeltah album. Bong. Then Iím going to have the Mic Tyson album. Then we might do another Boot Camp album and Iím done.

06-07-2007, 01:05 PM
Youíre not going to come back like Jordan, wearing the 4-5?

You might hear me on somebodyís single or feature, but as far as another Sean Price album, I doubt it very much. Iím not no fortune teller, so who knows? But Iím pretty sure with the way I feel right now, Iím done.

If you walked away after Mic Tyson, would you be happy with the mark you left on hip-hop?

No. Not at all. But it is what it is.

Is there anything you wish you could have changed?

Of course, but Iím not Superman. I canít reverse the ****ing globe and go back in time. It is what it is. Iíve had my share of fun and Iíve had my share of disappointments. It is what it is.

Will you still tour when youíre done?

Iím going to work every album like Iím supposed to. Iím going to do my job. Donít get it twisted. Iím not going to leave incomplete. Iím going to do what I have to do to make the album sell. But once thatís done, Iím out of here.

Has Dru Ha or Buckshot tried to talk you out of leaving the game?

Nah. They canít, anyway. And thatís not even on no Debo ****. Dru is my manager but heís also my friend. If he knows I donít want to do it, heís not going to force it.

You canít force it anyway.

Exactly. For me to do another album after Mic Tyson, I need a better situation. Iím not dissing Duck Down, but I need more exposure, man. I kind of feel like Iíve done all I can do on this level. If me and Dru canít get a better situation, then **** it, man. Iím done. I canít do it no more. This **** is ****ing annoying.

There were rumors that Def Jam was interested. Did that ever pan out?

No, it didnít. (laughs) Thereís a lot of rumors going around, but donít believe all the rumors. Thatís what they are Ė rumors. Iím not going to lie. I did get calls from certain people at majors, but nothing panned out. Iím not mad at them, but it just didnít work for me. I go where I want. Me and Dru know what we want and weíre not settling for nothing less. So nah, it didnít work out.

Do you think majors are scared of you as an artist?

Whatís to be scared of? Iím an artist. I go to the studio. My **** be on time. Iím not a lazy artist. I work my product and I do what Iím supposed to do. I donít think no label is scared of me. If you want me, you want me because of the **** that I did already, so why would you ask me to do anything else? Thatís the **** that bugs me out. If they like Sean P, thatís who theyíre ****ing with already. For them to ask me to jump out my character, why would they do that? I donít think thatís smart.

Are you looking for the major deal now?

Iím always looking for the major deal. I never stop looking for the major deal. Iím always looking for that. My situation has to get better. Iím not the brokest rapper you know anymore. Itís not like that. Itís time to take it up a notch. I just feel that I canít put out another record on this rinky-dink independent ****. **** that ****. People always talk about how they get $8 a record. I have never gotten $8 a record. That is such a ****ing crock of bull****. Iím not getting $8 a record, B. That **** is a lie. Whoever believes that is a ****ing idiot. If everybody independent is getting $8 a record, then nobody would sign to a major. Theyíd all go get that gwop. Itís ****ing bull****, man.

When I interviewed you for Monkey Barz almost two years ago, you said that no rapper could touch you. Do you still feel that way?

Yep. Yep. Yeah, I feel like that. When I mean you canít touch me, I mean in my lane. I donít think Iím the nicest rapper out there, but what I do, nobody can do. And if you try to do what I do, youíll sound like ****. This is my lane right here. Iím the master of this ****. Yeah, I canít be touched, man. Especially when Iím in my groove, Iím untouchable.

You always have creative album titles. How do you come up with the titles?

Itís how I feel at the time. With Monkey Barz, I was back in the streets, trying to come up. I was really gorillainí out here in these streets, so thatís where Monkey Barz came from. And then hip-hop needed saving. I didnít say I was the ultimate savior, but I felt that Jesus Price Superstar was a good title. Everybody said they needed the real hip-hop back and all that, so I went with that title.

And right now, I just feel like ****ing **** up right now. Thatís why I got this new title, Mic Tyson, because Iím going to **** you up, man, lyrically and physically. I even got a personal trainer now. Iím working out and all that. Iím on a diet and all that. Word up. Iím trying to be in my top form physically and lyrically. When you see the title, M-I-C Tyson, know what that means. It means that Iím going to **** you up, lyrically or physically, however you want it. I go where I feel and I like to have a title for my album before I start.

Recently, Sean Paul of the Youngbloodz announced he was changing his name to Sean P. What did you think when you first heard that?

You know how many mother****ers were telling me to go get him? Iím like, ĎMan, **** all that ****. I donít give a **** what that dude calls himself. That doesnít stop what I have going on.í They think if I diss him, Iíll turn more people on to my music. People think that if I diss homie, then more people are going to want to **** with me. Iím not with that.

Do you see Sean Paul changing his name to Sean P as disrespect?

At first I did. I think I still kind of feel that way. I can be honest with my feelings. But I donít think dude knows who I am. Iím under his radar if he doesnít know. But if he does know and is like, Ď**** it anyway,í then he did disrespect me.

Would you record a diss track to him?

Iím not the person to make diss raps. Iím not with that. Iíd like to talk to him. I donít want to jump out the window and start disrespecting him and then he doesnít know whatís going on. Thatís not the answer either. I would like to talk to him and then we can take it from there. On some man to man ****, letís have a talk, like, ĎDo you know who I am?í And we can take it to wherever it has to go. We can leave it alone, go at each other, put the gloves on and go a couple of rounds, whatever has to happen. But I would like to talk to him as a man.

It would be good to clear that up.

Yeah, it would be good to clear that up. Iím not trying to jump out the window. My friends are like, ĎGet him! Get him, son! Get him!í (laughs) Iím like, ĎGet who? Get the **** out of here.í I donít like beef rap. Back in the day, beef rap was cool. KRS and Marley Marl kept it on wax. Iím not talking about Sean Paul, but the majority of rappers are *****-type. They talk about doing this, that and the third. Iím not like that. I would like to talk to him as a man first. How that discussion goes will tell me how weíll take it from there.

Are we going to see a Rustee Juxx album in 2007?

Actually, his album is coming out early next year. He just dropped a little something called ďVic Flair.Ē Itís getting a nice little pick up. Itís real nice. Definitely look out for that. The name of the album is Indestructible.

How are you helping Indestructible?

Iím the executive-producer along with Dru Ha and Buckshot. I brought him into the Duck Down family so itís only right that I oversee that project. I canít just bring him in and be like, ĎAll right, see you later.í Iím definitely overseeing that project for sure.

What advice would you offer to up-and-coming artists?

Good luck. Good luck, homie. Work on your craft and if youíre that good, your music will speak for itself. Donít get caught up in all the bull**** thatís going on in the game. You donít have to be a part of that. A lot of people think you should diss people to get on now. Come on.

What are your plans for the summer?

I got the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival. Iím doing that on the 23rd. I have a free show in Brooklyn for the people. I forgot what date that is but Iím doing that. I have the Rock the Bells show with Wu-Tang at Randallís Island. Iím there. Then I have some tours lined up. Me, Black and Guilty are going to go overseas in the fall. Iím working on my music, just getting it right.

What do you want to say to everybody?

I just want to tell the people, ĎThank for the support.í Look out for me, Black and Guiltyís album. Look out for the new Heltah Skeltah and definitely look out for the last Sean P album Mic Tyson. M-I-C Tyson. Whoever supported me, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. And if you never supported me, maybe youíll like this next one. Itís okay. Iím not even tripping off that.

And Sean P from the Youngbloodz, get at me. Call me, brother. Tell you manager to call my manager and weíll talk. I just want to talk. Thereís no crazy ****. Not yet. (laughs) Contrary to popular belief, I can hold a conversation. Iím not a savage. I can talk. And if the conversation is good, then it is what it is. But if youíre crazy, then weíll both get crazy. Iím not trying to start nothing, but just get at a *****. Thatís all.

06-07-2007, 01:35 PM
If Sean P wants to stop after he's completed his upcoming shit then I say fairplay to him, noone should feel obligated to stay in the game if they aint feeling it no more.

Thanks for upping this.

06-07-2007, 01:58 PM
Yo, I love Sean. I'll definitly stay supporting no matter what.

Everybody is gonna know Black Milk real soon if they dont already. I seen a long video on youtube last year about him and his whole work ethic is solid. He's about to be everywhere ,watch.

This is a damn good Sean Price interview , probably the best I have read yet. Thanks for spreading this R410.

06-07-2007, 03:48 PM
Shit. That shit pains me cuz Sean P was 1 out of 3 peeps up in boot camp who had potential to be killer solo artists and have major rotation on mtv, bet, everywhere man(other two being Starang and Rockness). Shit man, hopefully his last album becomes a success and get P to at least gold (Really hard enough now a days but it's possible if P get's the right airplay and label).

06-07-2007, 04:10 PM
Nuff Respeck to Sean P and the BCC for holdin it down for our culture and it's future. Can't wait for the next Heltah Skeltah ALBUM!!!

06-07-2007, 07:04 PM
One of the best interviews i've read in awhile. Real talk the whole way through. Even though he's leaving the game, he sounds pretty busy with his next solo, heltah skeltah, black milk, master p mixtape, and the bcc album.

Shit. That shit pains me cuz Sean P was 1 out of 3 peeps up in boot camp who had potential to be killer solo artists and have major rotation on mtv, bet, everywhere man(other two being Starang and Rockness). Shit man, hopefully his last album becomes a success and get P to at least gold (Really hard enough now a days but it's possible if P get's the right airplay and label).

There is no more hiphop on mtv and hardly any on bet anymore. I don't blame him for leaving hip hop.

06-07-2007, 07:12 PM
its just sad how things are in hip hop now its really sad u kno being a die hard hip hop head the current state of it hurts me......ppl just dont take it serious no more and its only a few that do but the few that do dont even get the respect they deserve...im not sayin hip hop is dead cuz it can never die but it dam sure aint what it used to be

big up to sean p tho u kno alot of rappers if in his position would just change they style to appeal to the commercial audience but he'd rather quit than do that

06-07-2007, 08:17 PM
Sean P is that nigga. He and the boot click are from around my old block. Glad to see none of them are sell outs. If Sean P wants to bounce,I can respect that.
