The beloved mural of Brooklyn rapper Sean Price is set to be removed after the building acquired a new owner.
Price’s wife posted the news on her Instagram account. “I was informed that the @seandabarbarian ( SeanPrice) Mural located on Kingston and Bergen will be PERMANENTLY REMOVED due to the new building owner..

In August of 2015, the mural of Price went up as a tribute to him after he passed away at age 43 in his sleep. It was painted by street artist Meres One, who added the Brooklyn Bridge and a golden P ascending to heavens. The mural also has the lyric, “Use your head for more than a hat rack.”
Sean Price left behind his wife and three children. What are your thoughts on this?
