The rapper Sean Price was found dead on Saturday of unknown causes. The next day, the artist Meres One started a project to commemorate the MC. Meres is known for his work as a curator 5 Pointz, the outdoor art space in Long Island City that centers on graffiti. He told Gothamist, "All of [Price's] label [Duck Down] would come to 5 Pointz...I had this wall for a year and I wanted to do a portrait, I just didn't know who. It just was a perfect fit, one of the illest out of Brooklyn." Meres continued, "This is like payback, especially to him. I'm not going to change it. He has a permanent home here." You can see the mural 's progress above and check out more photos over at Gothamist. To donate to Price's family, go here.
