1 rating: 5.0
Rap & Hip-Hop album by Slick Rick

After he gained legendary status rapping on Doug E. Fresh's "La Di Da Di," it was only a matter of time before the world would clutch British-born Ricky Walters to its heart. Rick had already fancied himself a rabid storyteller (and a mighty good one) … see full wiki

Slick Rick is the Dr. Seuss of Hip-Hop.

I love this album. As a kid I would listen to this constantly between the summer of 88' and 89 going to and from Coney Island with my sister and my cousins. Slick Rick has been one of my favorite hip-hop artists. His debut album is an perfect example of the genre's finest old school sound. He is so original that you can recognize his style instantly from the rest and why he is "The Ruler." His English accent is extremely original and his flows coincides his accent perfectly. Slick Rick has earned the title "Father of story-telling Hip Hop," for a reason.

Once you listen to this you would understand why artists cover him, and mix in some of his cool lyrics, because even they know; it doesn't get much better than this. All his tracks are good, except for a couple weak ones, "Treat Her Like A Prostitute," "Mona Lisa," and the well-known "Children's Story" are classics I never get tired of hearing, but the absolute treasure on this album is "Hey, Young World." This song exceeds all standards and sends nothing but love, and Rick's message is one needed to be played often and listen to.

If you're able to get a hold of this disc you will understand why he is what he is.
