Brooklyn’s own Sean Price has passed away at the age of 43.

The news was confirmed by producer DJ Premier who made a post about it on his official Instagram page.

Price was one half of the duo Heltah Skeltah, and part of the boot Camp Clik. He also performed under the name Ruckus. He reportedly passed away in his sleep overnight.

He made some waves with the 2012 release Mic Tyson which had production from The Alchemist and 9th Wonder.

We send our condolences to the family and friends.

R.I.P. Ruck….Love and Respect to The Duck Down Family!!! #SeanPrice
