Rapper Sean Price first rose to prominence as a one half of the duo Heltah Skeltah, a member of the hip-hop collective Boot Camp Clik. Performing as under the name Ruck with partner Rock, Price dropped the acclaimed album Nocturnal in 1996 and the well-regarded follow-up Magnum Force in 1998. He made his solo debut in 2005 with Monkey Barz. His second solo effort, Jesus Price Supastar (2007), was a major success and generated some major label interest for the underground sensation. His work with Boot Camp Clik has continued throughout his solo career - he recently released a new Heltah Skeltah album, titled D.I.R.T. (Da Incredible Rap Team) alongside Rock in 2008. His latest release as a solo artist is Kimbo Price (2009).
The dynamic duo of Tek and Steele, known as Smif-N-Wessun, are survivors of the game of hip-hop. With a fast break into success, Tek and Steele made their first appearance to the world of hip-hop on Black Moon’s 1993 debut, Enta Da' Stage. The duo's debut LP Dah Shinin' (1995) followed shortly after. A brief legal dustup with the Smith & Wesson firearms company forced the duo to change its name to Cocoa Brovaz in 1996, and the newly-named group quickly joined Heltah Skeltah under the Boot Camp Clik banner and released its second album, The Rude Awakening (1998). They appeared on a number of compilation albums over the next several years before reclaiming their original moniker on the 2005 release Smif 'n' Wessun: Reloaded. Since that triumphant return, the group's releases have included Smif-N-Wessun: The Album (2007) and Monumental (2011), the duo's latest release with Pete Rock.
