Slick Rick Is Still Shinin’ In His First Video After Nearly 2 Decades

BY JACOB "34" KOERTGE • JUNE 29, 2019

It’s been more than 30 years since Slick Rick released his debut album, The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick, and 20 since The Ruler dropped his most recent project, The Art of Storytelling. His natural effect on both Hip-Hop and popular culture is palpable, as the British-born, Bronx bred MC’s talents and style has been referenced and rebranded by artists from Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, and JAY-Z, to Young Thug, Migos, and Nicki Minaj. Slick Rick’s legacy and groundwork continue to shape the culture, and today, Ricky D drops an all-new visual to add to his influential catalog.

After releasing the audio for his brand new singles, “Can’t Dance To A Track That Ain’t Got No Soul,” and “Midas Touch,” Rick wastes no time blending both songs into one cohesive video in a way that only he can muster. Here, the MC provides insight and candor to the visual, shining light on both his perception and long-standing relationship with the music and the label heads who stand in his way.
