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.

Sean Price – Songs In The Key Of Price Review

This project is short at only eight tracks but each has a lot of talent and skill put into it. It is a cohesive album that has a lot of replay value.

The production is excellent with a good range of sounds for Sean Price to work with. There are a few different atmospheres as the project progresses which helps each track sound more diverse than the others. A few more tracks with a faster tempo and more bounce could have made some more interesting tracks, but the chosen beats have enough for Sean Price to really shine.

The lyricism is good with some different techniques being explored by Price to keep the lyrics enjoyable. His signiture style helps put his passion into his work so that his rhymes keep the listener engaged. Some more flow variation could have shown a bigger variety of skill, however keeping to what he knows still makes some very good songs.

The features are great and add a lot to the songs they are on. Each of them brings thier talents to thier verse and makes a good contrast to Sean Price while making sure the listener does not forget them. Some guests from further out of his comfort zone may have made a few more memorable moments, but there is no doubt that those selected to be on this album, do a great job on it.

Overall, this project is enjoyable and entertaining while keeping his own identity on it. Sean Price has made a great last project and may he rest in peace.
