Sean Price – Imperius Rex Review

This release has some great moments, but is not without its missteps. No part of it is bad, but some of it does not stand out amongst today’s rap elite and needs a little more finesse.

The production is powerful and gritty which helps boost the impact of Sean Price’s delivery. Each beat does a great job of creating the correct atmosphere for the song which helps keep the album cohesive. Something a little faster could help add something for a younger audience, but Sean Price knows what works for him and has used backings that are effective for him.

The lyricism is great with plenty of alliteration and clever rhymes to keep the legacy of Sean Price going. A lot of structured genius goes into making these bars really roll and land hard with the listener. A few attempts to change his flow might have helped add a little diversity but Price is in his element here.

The features help to make this so cohesive and the momentum going. Each guest only does a god job boosting Sean Price’s last album and only shows great respect for his memory. The guest selection on here honours Price in the best fashion.

Overall, this is a great project to show the greatness of Sean Price. This album will stand the test of time as a list of what could have been and how talented this legendary artist is.
