Uncle Ricky plus Mean Joe Preem. Ricky D can still rap his ass off. Primo can still make drums go boom and bap while chopping the shit out of a sample. Okay. What the fuck were you expecting…a slow jam?
Slick Rick “Need Some Bad” (Produced by DJ Premier)
I’m all for the vets maintaining their squabbles and finding the means to stay stylistically relevant as MC’s. Here’s one of the realest examples I can throw your way. Apart from the god Kool G Rap, Ricky-D is still the master after surviving many generations of Hip Hop. He straight shits on everyone with this…effortlessly (typical Uncle Ricky fashion…as only he can do it). I don’t wanna hear anything for a few minutes after that verse. Repeat play this…
Shouts to Monday Chris at Big City Records for puttin’ me onto this.
