Slick Rick-Hey Young World

All hail Rick the Ruler. Slick Rick is undoubtedly one of the greatest story telling lyricist hands down. Ricky Walters was born January 14, 1965 in South Wimbledon, London, England. He moved to the Bronx in 75' where he met Dana Dane and they joined forces to create the Kangol Crew. One of the most commonly unknown things about Slick Rick is "What the hell happened to his Damned eye?". Well just to put your curiosity to rest, Rick was blinded in his right eye as an infant by broken glass (sounds painful). I remember my cousin Antuane aka Rick used to play this album at grandma B's house non stop.
