Slick Rick maintains a very active 35-plus-year-Rap career. In the last year, he has worked with Black Eyed Peas, appeared in music videos by Nas, French Montana & Drake, and sat down with GQ to show off his truck jewelry collection. In late 2018, Rick Walters also worked with Def Jam Records on the 30th-anniversary collector’s edition re-release of his acclaimed debut album, The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick. That rollout included some previously-unreleased music from the late 1980s sessions.
Although Rick is active, like peers Big Daddy Kane and Rakim, he is not so keen on dropping new solo songs. Early in the second, Rick made “Need Some Bad” for The Sitter soundtrack. However, the Bronx, New York representative dropped two songs today that involve sound-beds heard in Hip-Hop’s early park jams.
