CROWN HEIGHTS - A seasoned graffiti artist created a mural honoring Brooklyn rapper Sean Price, who passed away this weekend.

MERES ONE began painting the mural on Sunday after learning on Facebook that Price passed away.

The mural is located in Crown Heights on Bergen Street, near Kingston Avenue.

MERES ONE says he felt compelled to honor the fallen rapper because he was a fan of his music.

Price, a Brownsville resident, was a member of the hip-hop group Heltah Skeltah. In recent years, the Brooklyn-based rapper worked as a solo artist. His most recent album, Mic Tyson, was released back in 2013.

Price died unexpectedly in his sleep. He was 43 years old.
