We have all woken up this morning to reports from family and friends saying rapper Sean Price died suddenly this morning, apparently in his sleep, at his home in Brooklyn. Price was only 43 years old.
“It is with beyond a heavy heart that Duck Down Music is sadly confirming that Sean Price passed away early this morning in his Brooklyn apartment, Saturday, August 8th, 2015,” his rep said in a statement to E! News. “The cause of death is currently unknown, but it was reported that he died in his sleep. He’s survived by his wife, and his three children.”
The cause of death is not known at this time, but an update will be made following the release of an autopsy report. Sean Price rose to prominence under the name “Ruck” in the duo Heltah Skeltah in the 90s, and would later go on to join the supergroups Boot Camp Clik and Random Axe. He was set to release an album this year, Songs In The Key Of Price, for August 21st.
Rest In Peace Sean Price
