Though Shady Records has yet to confirm the donation (they really don’t have to), it has been reported that Eminem’s label has donated $10,000 to the family of the late Brooklyn rapper, Sean Price.
On Saturday August 8th, Price (43), survived by a wife and four children, unexpectedly died in his sleep inside his Brownsville home. Duck Down music — a New York based record label that released Price’s solo debut album “Monkey Barz,” created a CrowdRise page in the wake of Price’s death. The fundraiser has accumulated a little over $86,000 to date, to help Price’s family move forward.
A mural in Crown Heights went up a day after the rapper’s death in honor of his Brooklyn roots and Hip-Hop legacy. 5Pointz graffiti artist Meres One painted the dedication on a brick wall at Bergen Street and Kingston Avenue. “Sean Price inspired me and represents to me what true hip-hop is about,” Meres One wrote on Instagram. “We should not wait to lose our true heroes to recognize and value them!! #restinpower”
“I swear I just told Marshall (Eminem) on Thursday that Sean was my current favorite,” Paul Rosenberg, Eminem’s manager told All Hip-Hop. “I hung on every word in his verses.”
