The Very Best of Slick Rick

Here is a Best Of that I’ve been looking forward to doing for a very long time. For as long as I can remember; Slick Rick has always been one of my favourite rappers, even though he hasn’t released anything for 11 years now. His unmistakable voice and incredible storytelling skills make him one of THE most unique Hip-Hop figures to walk the earth. All four of his albums are completely different to anything I’ve ever heard from any other artist and The Art Of Storytelling is one of my favourite albums ever. It was great to hear him on The Ecstatic last year, but I think it’s time we heard some new material from the man himself - sooner, rather than later. If I could have two musical wishes for 2011; they would be to have new albums from D’Angelo and Slick Rick - that would make me a very happy man. Hopefully you will enjoy this tribute to one of the greatest rappers we’ve ever seen. Tracklist and download link after the jump.
