Sean Price & Small Professor Posthumously Align for New '86 Witness' Album: Stream It Now (Exclusive)
Sean Price tragically died in 2015, but producer Small Professor is doing his part to continue P's legacy. The pair will unite for the nostalgic 86 Witness album Friday, but the 10-track project is now available to stream early with Billboard below.
The effort finds the Brooklyn legend exercising his lyrical prowess in an homage to the year 1986, giving props to the Super Bowl XX-winning Chicago Bears, William "Refrigerator" Perry, WWE's Mean Gene Okerlund and John Gotti. Mic Tyson is joined on the project by AG Da Coroner, Guilty Simpson and Your Old Droog, to name a few.
"Some of our favorite rap music was created out of the one emcee/producer album tradition. It’s a tradition that I hope 86 Witness adds to. Though P is no longer with us, his legacy lives through his music, including this album," Small Professor tells Billboard.
The burgeoning Philly native adds that even though he never met Price face-to-face, their styles meshed seamlessly. "Despite never having the chance to meet, I hope listeners can feel the chemistry in what resulted from this project: two old souls from different eras with a common love for hip-hop. Long live P!"
