Rap artists and fans alike have taken to social media to pay their respects to Heltah Skeltah's Sean Price. The respected Brownsville lyricist passed away in his sleep last Saturday, August 8 at 43 years old, and is survived by his wife and four children. Sean Price's label, Duck Down Music, has since began a crowdfunding campaign in order to aid and support the "beloved rap artist's" loved ones, and Shady Records decided to extend their hand with the biggest donation for the "Operation Lockdown" emcee.

Shady Records - which serves as the label for acts like Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse - donated $10,000 to Price's family a couple of days ago. In total, Duck Down Music has received up to 1,158 donations totaling over $80,000.
