Great old school rap. It is Slick Rick at is his b

by on 3/15/2008

I absolutely love it. This cd came out when I was in my last year of high school and into my first year of college. Tunes like A children's story and mona lisa are great. This whole cd is classic. I would encourage all serious hip-hop heads to have this is their collection.

Album Notes and Credits
Personnel includes: Slick Rick (rap vocals); Vance Wright (DJ).
Producers include: Ricky Walters, Jason Mizell, Hank Shocklee, Eric Sadler.
In the history of rap music, there are few artists who can be labeled as pioneers. One such artist is Slick Rick who, along with partner Doug E. Fresh, is the rapper responsible for such long-standing hip-hop classics as "The Show" and "La Di Da Di." With the special rhythmic flow of his accented vocals (he was born and raised in England) and powerful, innovative production, THE GREAT ADVENTURES OF SLICK RICK further led Rick Walters down the road of quick, massive fame and sealed his reputation as a master MC.
At the time of this solo debut, Slick Rick's personalized style was ground-breaking. The first single, "Children's Story," crowned Rick the king of rap's storytellers. He was able to turn the truthful pain and hardships of his community into entertaining tales that opened the eyes of the industry, and gave hip-hop a new thematic avenue. With the exception of LL Cool J's "I Need Love," Rick's "Teenage Love" was rap's most popular slow jam, dealing realistically with troubles of the heart experienced by most inner-city youngsters. Taking on the role of various characters--particularly, The Ruler and MC Ricky D--Slick Rick also began the role-playing, playwright style of rap music that is continuously used by any number of gangsta crews.
Although it was released in 1988, THE GREAT ADVENTURES OF SLICK RICK has had a lasting impact on the hip-hop nation, which still pays hommage by continuously sampling "Hey Young World" and featuring the album's most famous cut, "Mona Lisa," at parties on both coasts.
