US TOUR COMMEMORATING THE CLASSIC ALBUM KICKS OFF APRIL 2ND IN LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY
Back in 1988, a young Bronx emcee named Ricky Walters put out his debut album, “The Great Adventures of Slick Rick” and forever changed the landscape of hip-hop. This spring, true hip-hop fans will rejoice as the renowned Slick Rick the Ruler goes on a 19-city tour, kicking off April 2nd at the Headliners Ballroom in Louisville, Kentucky!
“Slick Rick’s reputation as hip-hop’s greatest storyteller hangs on his classic debut “The Great Adventures of Slick Rick,” says AllMusic’s Steve Huey.
This will be the first major tour since Rick’s highly publicized immigration case. But much of his story remains untold. The countless articles about prison may sell magazines, but they tend to overshadow the rapper’s impressive and influential body of work. Slick Rick has a following that breaks age and cultural barriers. More than any other rapper, he’s been sampled, quoted, loved, and emulated by each generation that has followed him. “
Slick Rick is one of the greatest artists — not just MCs —in the world, and I just really love his music,” says rap superstar Nas.
“I am so grateful to my fans who have supported me throughout my ordeal. Because of them, I am able to make this tour happen,” says a humble Slick Rick
