Slick Rick's reputation as hip-hop's greatest storyteller hangs on his classic debut, The Great Adventures of Slick Rick, one of the most influential rap records of the late '80s - for better and worse.

You had already long since become part of American culture at that point, in terms of having been here long enough, but do you remember what your mindset was when you were putting that project together? Well, the mindset was probably, You put out a single here and there, but now you have to make a whole album, so you have to mentally prepare yourself for at least 12 songs.
Slick Rick's approach to rap was unique for a number of reasons. For starters, he didn't sound like anyone else we had ever heard. Originally from England, he later moved to the Bronx and eventually started his rap career. The half-British accent mixed with New York street slang was a hit with rap fans everywhere!

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.
