Wake held for rapper Sean Price

A large showing of family and friends said their final farewells Tuesday to Brooklyn rapper Sean Price, who died over the weekend.



A wake service was held at McManus Funeral Home in Flatlands.



The Brooklyn native, who was a member of the legendary hip-hop duo Heltah Skeltah, died of unknown causes Saturday morning, according to family members. He was 43.



Mourners say Price was both generous and genuine. A local artist created a mural in Crown Heights to honor the late rapper.



Price is survived by his wife and three children.
