Contrary to what fans may believe, rappers donít live a music video 24 hours a day. Both the ice and the ice grills come off and real life has a way of ensuing. Showing that rappers are more than just money, cash, hoes, HipHopDX is introducing a new column that allows you a glimpse into the thoughts of your favorite rhyme spitters on the most regular topics. Rap is a prohibited subject. Weíll shoot the breeze with your favorite emcees as we do what youíve probably wanted to always do, talk to rappers about regular stuff.

First up is Sean Price. The Boot Camp Click alum does have his upcoming album Mic Tyson on the way, but today, weíre pushing the beats and rhymes to the side. Instead, P talks about why being a vegetarian was wack, Valentineís day with the Mrs., preparing for the birth of his first daughter, the bum-ass Knicks and Haiti.

HipHopDX: Yo P, what up homie?
Sean Price: Iím good, how you?



DX: Man I gotta keep it real, Iím kinda tired man. Was thinking of taking one of those 5-Hour Energy joints. You ever tried that ?
Sean Price: Um, not before a show but one time I was doing a show out in Bmore and this guy wanted to do a feature with me in North Virginia, which isnít that far, but it was a little ride. I was tired after the show so I drunk one of those. It actually does work.

DX: Oh word? Like, were you bouncing off the walls and all that?
Sean Price: No. And I donít drink Red Bulls cause they donít work. But the little 5-Hour thingÖand I ainít even have to drink it all.

DX: So theyíre official?
Sean Price: Yeah.

DX: Aight, I been hearing people talking about global warming and going green lately. How you feel about going green?
Sean Price: I mean, anything to save the environment. But one thing I do know is it costs a lot of money to go green. So I donít necessarily have the finances to go green, nah mean? Even if you wanna go organic, that shit costs more than the regular stuff soÖmy finances ainít really up to go fully green. I might have a solar-powered calculator, but thatís it.

DX: Ha, ha. So we ainít gon see you up in Whole Foods?
Sean Price: I mean, I be up in Whole Foods. I did the whole vegetarian thing for a whole year last year.

DX: For real, howíd that work out for you?
Sean Price: I hated it ! Man, it was the worst. Yeah, it was the worst. I went to Whole Foods and got the little vegetarian sausages and little things, and that was cool, but for the most part, I hated it. And I aint even lose no weight. I lost more weight this year by working out and just watching what I eat.

DX: Whatís your work out looking like? What you going in the gym doing?
Sean Price: Nah, no gym. I got The Perfect Push Up. Plus I do a lot of drugs and drink a lot of water, so itís cool. I lost 30 pounds so far. My stomach is gone! I opened up a can of squid today, ate that right out the can and drunk like three glasses of water. Thatís something I got from jail, eating the squid out the can.

DX: So your wifeís pretty much cooking everything in your cribÖ
Sean Price: Yeah, my wife do all the cooking. Contrary to the song ďHeartburnĒ where I said ďthe bitch canít cook,Ē - she definitely smacked me in the back of the head for that one - she know how to cook. She get in. And she donít fry nothing so we donít really eat fried foods.

DX: Speaking of the wife, Valentineís Day is coming up. How you gone do it up for your lady this year ?
Sean Price: Man, I donít know what Iím gonna do this year. Last year it was the Juniorís, you know the heart-shaped cheesecake with the strawberries on it and the cookies, like the lips with the ďI love YouĒ on it and all that. Year before that, it was a gold and ruby set from Zale's, you know the heart, the chain, the ring, the earrings. I donít know what Iím gonna do this year. And I have a child on the way, March 20. And the baby shower is in February so we might just skip Valentineís day this year.

DX: Oh, aight. Congrats on your unborn child. But you canít skip out on that question though. When people think of you they think of this big burly dude, but whatís the most romantic thing youíve done for your lady?
Sean Price: You right, I am a bully. Let me figure this outÖI donít know man. I just get her what she wants. I donít really know if itís romantic. I surprise her with things. I mean, Iím definitely not the rose petal in the tub-ass nigga. I definitely ainít do that. Not saying I wouldnít, I just havenít done it yet.

DX: Well there you go. Thatís the idea for this year thenÖ
Sean Price: True. But she pregnant though now, nahmean? So, ehhÖ..

DX: Ha. With you about to become a father, what kind of changes is that going to bring to your day-to-day ?
Sean Price: Well, I mean, itís my first daughter and all my friends are telling me itís gonna be different. I already got two boys, but it's different and Iím already feeling it, like, Iím gonna be a watchdog now. With boys, you know, they gonna be men so its love but itís tough love. My daughter is different. Man, I got friends harder than me man, rough dudes. They be like, "Man, I be crying for my daughter man, Iím a sucker for her.Ē So Iím like, aw man. I just feel sorry for her second boyfriend, 'cause the first one Iím gonna merk straight off the bat. He gonna have to come right, cause they gon be like, ďYou know he murdered the first boyfriend right?Ē I just feel sorry for him. And Iím naming her after me, S-h-a-u-n Price.

DX: Thatís crazy. A female Sean Price. But yo, what if she brings home a rapper ?
Sean Price: I mean, hey. Iím just gonna put her on the game man, the tricks of the trade. Every trick I ever tried to lure a girl in, Iím gonna tell her. SoÖif she be aware of it, hopefully I can train her right, nah mean? I definitely was a dog so Iím gonna tell her everything. Iím not gonna hide nothing.

DX: So in a few years we gonna see you doing the Daddy Day Care thing and going to the father-daughter dancesÖ
Sean Price: Oh, no question. I already got the iPod up to her stomach that says the alphabet. In English and in Spanish. That, and she hear her numbers, in English and Spanish and my songs. Thatís all I play on the stomach.

DX: Speaking of play, wussup with your Knicks man? It gotta be hard rooting for them sometimes.
Sean Price: Yeah, Iím a Knicks fan. I go through hell and back every year with that.

DX: But I remember a couple years back they had a hell of a team, talent wise, but they still couldnít do anything. What do they need?
Sean Price: Man, you know what it seems like? Whenever we get talent, they ainít shit when they get to New York. Itís like they donít know what to do with their players. Like, Iím looking at Zach Randolph play the other day, for the Grizzlies, he wasnít doing none of that shit when he was in New York. We had Antonio McDyess, he wasnít doing none of that shit in New York. He was doing good before us, then came here, left and went to Detroit and got a ring. Every time we get somebodyÖ

DX: You see what Jamal Crawfordís doing with AtlantaÖ
Sean Price: Exactly ! Yeah. Everybody. We had Trevor Ariza at one time. But they looking ok now. Itís still kinda early. David Lee is doing his thing. I didnít like Nate Robinson before, but heís kinda showing his ass now. No Bruno!

DX: So what you think about the whole Gilbert Arenas thing man ?
Sean Price: [Sighs] Man, I just donít understand Gilbert Arenas. Iím not gonna call him stupid, I think he just made a stupid move. He say he live in Virginia. Brought his guns to the locker room to keep them away from the kids but, a dude like that, youíre a legal dude. A nigga like me, if I had a gun in the house, Iíd have gun charges. A dude like him, if your guns are legal, you ainít gotta take Ďem out the house to keep them away from the kids. They got all types of locks, trigger locks, safe boxes that you could get dude. I donít understand that move at all.

DX: You think it was right for him to get suspended for the rest of the season ?
Sean Price: I mean, it ainít Plaxico Burress bad, but itís still bad. Like Charles Barkley said, "I donít think itís a $90 million mistake where they should just shut your whole contract down, you didnít hurt nobody," thank God. You hurting your pockets right now.

DX: Mark McGuire admitted to the steroids thingÖ
Sean Price: Man, I donít know what to think about that. If I played baseball, would I use steroids... probably not. Any medicine thatís gonna fuck with my manhoodÖIím not fucking with it. Period. Fuck a baseball. My shit ainít working right because Iím trying to get muscles? Iím not messing with none of that.

DX: Not to get too heavy on you, but with what happened in Haiti, has that effected you at all personally ?
Sean Price: I mean, Iím not Haitian, but I have a lot of Haitian friends. If you buy and Duck Down albums on iTunes right now, all of the proceeds go towards Haiti. But of course itís gonna effect me. Whether I was born here or there, it doesnít matter. Itís still a messed up situation. It ain't even a color thing, itís a people thing. And the news only shows people looting, but theyíre not looting, theyíre surviving. It was never sweet over there to begin with. I donít like how the media portrays it. Thatís not looting, thatís surviving. I just hope they get the funds and the aid that they need to get right and get better.

Definitely. Sean is good for the comedy and Prodigy holds it down with his conspiracy theory paranoia outlooks on life.
