Mic Tyson (Deluxe Edition)
Longstanding indie-rap favorite Sean Price has been around since the mid-'90s, when he debuted (under the name Ruck) as half of the Boot Camp Clik group Heltah Skeltah. Both of his previous solo albums (Monkey Barz and Jesus Price Superstar) were embraced by the underground, which is still intoxicated by P's relentlessly ruffneck verses. Effortlessly balancing Brooklyn trash talk and chuckle-inducing punchlines, he's one of New York's most charismatic emcees. And he keeps getting better with each release. On Mic Tyson, he hits us with another batch of hardcore but funny and streetwise wordplay, attacking corny rappers and tight pants–wearing cheeseballs. He rides neck-bending beats while collaborating with like-minded homies Buckshot, Ill Bill, Ruste Juxx, Pumpkinhead, Pharoahe Monch, and Torae. If you're already a fan, this has everything you know and love about P. If you're new to his BK style, this is a perfect intro. Don't miss "Price & Shining Armor," "Frankenberry," "Bar-Barian," and "The Hardest N*gga Out."
