Duck Down Raises Money To Support Sean Price's Family

On August 8th, hip hop lost a legend and the world lost a genuinely good person in Sean Price. The Duck Down family is taking care of their brother by supporting his family with a fundraiser powered through CrowdRise. Below is the statement issued via the Duck Down website.

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. 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.

Sean Price, who turned 43 in March of this year, was a beloved rap artist. He was 1/2 of the group Heltah Skeltah, a key member of the Boot Camp Clik, and a successful solo artist, known simply as Sean Price.

Sean’s family and friends are asking for time to grieve and process the news. Further details will be issued when more information is available.

This is the perfect opportunity for us as a Hip Hop community to come together and take care of our own. Below is a link to make a donation.
