The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick (Explicit)

The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick by Slick Rick
Released: Dec 1988
Label: Def Jam/RAL
It's a sign of how much hip-hop has changed that Slick Rick was once called misogynist for "Treat Her Like a Prostitute." Such charges once obscured our appreciation of his incredible storytelling on The Great Adventures. "Children's Story" is a hoodlum tale that is both funny and tragic. He imagines prison rape on "The Moment I Feared" -- a scenario no rapper would touch today, at least not in the first person -- and gets the cooties on "Indian Girl." Nearly every story, from "Hey Young World" to "Teenage Love," is a revelatory look into the '80s B-boy id, a scary and wonderful place to be.
