"Excuse me Doug E Fresh
Have you ever seen a show with fellas on the mic
With one minute rhymes that don't come out right
They bite, they never write, that's not polite
Am I lying?
- No, you're quite right!"...Last night 4/25/18 was the last Hip Hop show at BB Kings Times Square venue for a legendary closing! The Ruler and Doug!..
"Rick's music has been sampled and interpolated over 600 times, in over 35 songs by artists including Eminem, Beyoncé, The Beastie Boys, TLC, Nas, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Black Star, The Notorious B.I.G., Snoop Dogg, MC Ren, and Color Me Badd. In the process, Slick Rick has become the most-sampled Hip-Hop artist ever. Many of these songs based on Slick Rick samples went on to become hit singles. He's been a VH-1 Hip Hop Honors honoree, and About.com ranked him No. 12 on their list of the Top 50 MCs of Our Time, while The Source ranked him No. 15 on their list of the Top 50 Lyricists of All Time! His career began in late 1985; gaining success in the rap industry after joining Doug E. Fresh's Get Fresh Crew, using the stage name MC Ricky D. He was featured on the single "The Show" and its even more popular B-side, "La Di Da Di", which featured Rick rapping over Doug E. Fresh's beatbox!
