Vinyl of the Week:
The Great Adventures of Slick Rick. Wow - this is a classic. Released in 1988 via @defjam. Even people that aren’t hip hop fans know the lead single “Children’s Story” that starts with “Once upon a time not long ago...”
One track was produced by Jam Master Jay while the rest were produced by Slick Rick himself or The Bomb Squad who also produced Public Enemy. The storytelling on this record is incredible. I suggest anyone that hasn’t heard it to go give it a listen ASAP.
I like the image on the back of the vinyl sleeve because it looks like they took it in a bathroom lol. The different font is also super dope as well. The most interesting part by far though, definitely the song titles: “Treat Her Like a Prostitute” and “Lick The Balls”... that’s intense.
My non-single favorite is “The Moment I Feared” which is a vivid story about him getting into something he never wished he would have.
