NYC rapper Sean Price released his new album, Mic Tyson, on October 30 via Duck Down Records and was supposed to play a hometown record release show that day at SOB's, but Hurricane Sandy had other plans and the show never happened. Still no word on a new date for that show (or if there'll be one) but he'll play a different NYC show with fellow Duck Down labelmates/affiliates Buckshot, 9th Wonder, and Murs at Santos Party House on November 13 with opening sets from Young Guru and DJ Meka (2dopeboyz). Tickets for that show are on sale now. The flyer is below.
November 13 is also the day that 9th Wonder will release two collaborative albums: The Final Adventure with Murs via It's A Wonderful World/Traffic Entertainment/KGMG and The Solution with Buckshot via Duck Down. The cover art, tracklists, and song streams from both albums are below.
Both 9th Wonder and Buckshot contributed to Sean Price's Mic Tyson, as did The Alchemist, whose upcoming album with Action Bronson features Sean Price. Hardcore hip hop has been enjoying somewhat of a resurgence this year with great albums getting the attention they deserve (Killer Mike, Freddie Gibbs, etc) and Mic Tyson fits right in with that. You can stream it in its entirety below via spotify.
All streams, a list of all dates, and more are below.
