Sean Price - Mic Tyson
By Mark BozzerBrownsville's finest, Sean P (aka Sean Price, aka "the brokest rapper you know") is back on his "grown-man shit" with his long-awaited and highly anticipated new album, Mic Tyson. This is his first full-length since 2007's Jesus Price Superstar and first batch of new material since the Kimbo Price mixtape, which dropped back in 2009. With a gang of dope beats in tow, courtesy of everyone from the Alchemist, 9th Wonder, Evidence and Babu to the Beat Bullies and Stu Bangas, the punch line champ is back with enough quotables and shit-talking to send the rest of these cornball MCs running to hide behind their security details. Peep P take aim at the new generation, "Young dummies/Can't spar/No life/My flow tight/Like your pants are," on "Bar-Barian" over Alchemist's mesmerizing backbeat or hear two O.G.s sounding proper on the Pharoahe Monch-assisted, and Evidence- and Babu-helmed, "BBQ Sauce," which has P spitting some disrespectful bars, "I ain't believing in y'all/Make your mom suck my dick with blue cheese on my balls," over some high-pitched strings and crashing drums. Other dope cuts include the horrorcore served up on "Solomon Grundy," featuring Ike Eyes and Ill Bill, and the futuristic slick shit Price and Torae easily drop on the Evidence-produced "By The Way." Young rappers take notice: you want to sound like this when you get older.
