Slick Rick The Ruler  Born in Britain, bred in the BX...God First...

Here I sit at 23 years old. My first solo show (post The Get Fresh Crew) at @beacontheatre circa 1988. I was anxious—this was NYC! My dancers insisted on doing a solo routine. The crowd booed the mess out of them—they ran off the stage and never came back! The crowd started laughing, including myself. 😂 Needless to say, the crowd stayed with me. Vance and I rocked the stage that night without the ladies. Hilarious to look back at now...just know the girls were never allowed to do ANY solo routines ever again! Fun fact: I still have the throne. #tbt

Check out my #ThisIsSlickRick playlist on @spotify + listen to my new throwback track #SnakesoftheWorldToday while you’re there. Took me a couple of takes with @jessalilmore, but we got it! 😂🤣#SlickRick30 #TGAOSR 🎥: @amberrima Edited by: @dirtyharryny

To the right of me, the super, super kind hearted Kim Porter. I met Kim hanging with my bro @officialalbsure when he and I were recording, “If I Am Not Your Lover”. Kim was the kindest and nicest sister you could meet ever. A class act. I remember we all hung out and went to Heavy D’s house in Mt. Vernon. Al, you remember that day? RIP sis. Great job with @Quincy! Blessings to your family.

Thankful for everything.

An honor to have been invited to meet the legendary jazz keyboardist Mr. Bob James and his band.
His arrangements and body of work has undeniably contributed to the formation of #HipHop. #googlehim
