Mic Tyson is the third solo studio album by American rapper Sean Price.[2] It was released on October 30, 2012.

Background

Sean Price announced the album to the public in mid-2009, by releasing a mixtape (as a “prelude” to the album), titled Kimbo Price: A Prelude to Mic Tyson, which contains 23 tracks. In an interview with Vlad TV he stated that “he’s tryin’ to fuck everybody on this album”. He calls it Mic Tyson “because he’s from Brownsville and that he knows how to fight”. In an interview with Grand Angel TV, he stated that the only confirmed guest thus far was rapper Chali 2na.[3] However he did not make the final cut of the album. In that same year, he spoke with Conspiracy Radio regarding the producers slated on the album, which are Stu Bangas, The Alchemist, Evidence, Sid Roams (who as well did not make the final cut), 9th Wonder, (who has appeared on Price’s two previous studio albums), Beat Butcha, etc.[4] In 2012 three videos on YouTube surfaced of Price previewing tracks off of Mic Tyson,[5][6][7] and after many of the pushbacks, Price stated that the album would see release in July. However it was pushed back, yet again, to October 30, which ended up being the actual release date.

Singles

According to Duck Down Records (Sean Price’s label), “STFU, Part 2”, produced by The Alchemist, is the first single of the album.[8]
