Duck Down Records, home to Black Moon, OGC, Heltah Skeltah, and later Statik Seletah and David Dallas, had a strong run as one of the more successful underground indie labels of the 90s. Its popularity was overshadowed by rap’s sudden shift to capitalism music, and one of the labels groups, OGC, even had beef with Notorious B.I.G’s gang crew Junior Mafia that allegedly resulted in fisticuffs at some point.

The Fab 5 was originally Heltah Skeltah and OGC as a team, and that was how they signed to Duck Down records. But they split to release respective group records, and through the natural progression of time, never reunited as a group within the label.

As Hip Hop celebrates Sean Price, let’s take a look at what could be considered his grand entrance into the game he clearly loved so much.

Rest in peace, P!
