Billboard is reporting today that Brooklyn Rapper Sean Price died in his sleep early this morning. As well as being a solo artist, Price was a member of the hip-hop group Boot Camp Clik, and was one half of the duo Heltah Skeltah.
His representatives issued the following statement:
“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,” reads a statement from his reps. “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.”
So far there have been no details about his death with the exception of him being asleep when it happened. It seems peculiar to a lot of people commenting on the story that Price would simply pass in such a way. Many are asking if he was sick or under notable amounts of stress or the like. But according to the Billboard report, family and friends are asking for time to grieve before they make any further statements.
Price was 43. Condolences to all his family and friends and may he rest in peace.
