Sean P lives on! His posthumous album Imperius Rex dropped last year, and it was highly anticipated amongst die hard fans. It featured some of the dopest artists in game like Method Man, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, Ruste Juxx, MF Doom, Buckshot, Steele, and more. And one of the songs that really stood out is “3 Lyrical P’s“.
In 2015, we all mourned the loss of hip hop legend Sean Price (RIP). Two years later, we all felt the sting of losing another legend with the demise of hip hop icon Prodigy from Mobb Deep. This collaboration was both a blessing and sentimental at the same time. Styles P‘s lyrical prowess is definitely underrated. And his verse on this joint shows that he’s one of the heavyweights in hip hop.
The concept to align these three lyrical mavericks on this dope track was pure genius. The visuals for the “3 Lyrical P’s” was inevitable. And I absolutely love it! The video is an animation of Sean P’s signature cartoon style niche. And these animated characters of Sean P, Prodigy and Styles P take us on a journey from Brooklyn to Queens and then Yonkers’ city blocks, as the trio spit bars amidst graphic visuals of street life.
The video starts with Sean P’s character hittin’ us with his hardcore witty punchlines as only he could deliver. And then he’s followed up by Prodigy’s animated character who embodies his same style and swag dawning his signature bandanna. Lastly, we get Styles P rockin’ out at the end bustin’ shots and ill lyrics.
Salute at Duck Down Music and Bernadette Price for preserving this hip hop legacy. Who’s ready for another Sean Price album? I know I am! In the meantime, enjoy the visuals from the “3 Lyrical P’s”.
