The Harambe Incident Gets Satirized In Sean Price ‘Dead Or Alive’ Video [WATCH]
Two years ago, we lost the beloved Brooklyn rhymer Sean Price. On Tuesday (Aug. 8), Duck Down Records released his posthumous album, Imperius Rex. The collection features the chest-thumping track “Dead or Alive” and now an official video for the song has been released.
The visual plays on the gorilla-themed album as Steele of Smif-N-Wessun is running a Brooklyn zoo out of his backyard. Residents are invited to see this rare gorilla who exhibits the same personality as the late Heltah Skeltah rapper. From smoking cigarettes to drinking Hennessy right out of the bottle to throwing poop at patrons, this ape simply gives no f---s.
The gorilla attraction gets so popular that a news reporter (played by Michael Rapaport) is called to the scene to report on this amazing animal. But things goes awry when the gorilla goes berserk after a hipster falls into his pool area. Since the animal can't be contained there’s no other recourse but to shoot it, which is reminiscent of the infamous Harambe incident.
But unlike Harambe, this ape escapes—with cigarette in hand— as he trollops on the streets of Brownsville. The “Dead or Alive” video also features guest appearances from Ruck, Buckshot, Steele and Sean Price’s widow Bernadette Price who spits tough bars throughout the clip.
Sean Price's Imperius Rex is available on all streaming platforms and you can cop it right now on iTunes.
