    YESSSSS!! I love you guys at SLAM. You know Slick Rick was brought up in London, England. He is dope, one of my favourite MC’s. Childrens Story is a classic !! Probably one of the greatest storytellers in the history of hip hop. I’m gonna shut up with my requests for a while now….haha

    It’s false advertising to call it Outkast if Dre doesn’t rap or sing, or do something. That is a rule.


    U.K. in da Hoose !!

    Children’s story is one of the most legendary hip hop tracks ever. Also probably one of the most sampled ones.

    91′ Rulers Back – Top Cat was always my go to Rick track…


    Kanye the new Slick Rick (as he calls himself)!? Pleez! Sit down son and watch the Master @ work. All these joints are Grade A class! My personal fav tho is an underrated one, “I Sparkle”.


    And I give credit to Slick Rick for introducing me to Moet. Luv that chamapgne!

    All jokes aside, shout out to Slick Rick.
    Surely among the top rappers of all time.

    @ GP23: No doubt, you can even hear his British accent lol. His homie Dana Dane put on a fake accent when he rapped though.
    MF Doom (aka Zev Love X) was also born in Britain I think.
