Slick Rick talks about his classic The Great Adventures of Slick Rick Album [Video]


The wonderful homies over at Okayplayer captured the legendary Slick Rick talking about his classic album The Great Adventures of Slick Rick.

As part of Red Bull Music Academy’s Five out of Five series, where they speak to rappers repping one of each of the five New York boroughs (Slick Rick repping the Bronx, although he’s a Londoner really), this was captured by the OKP TV team for our viewing pleasure.

He talks about how he created the album pretty much single-handedly, his disdain at the choice of the first single “Teenage Love,” how Knight Rider inspired a track on the album, and his take on storytelling.
