Hip Hop Icon Slick Rick Releases "Children's Book"

29 years later, Slick Rick returns with The Great Adventures of…Children’s Book (Get On Down), a puffy-covered, illustrated board book of the classic hit, officially launching on Saturday, April 22, 2017, for Record Store Day. The book is accompanied by a CD of the full album, The Great Adventures of Slick Rick (Def Jam) along with a 45 of “Children’s Story” and “The Moment I Featured,” featuring artwork taken from original 12-inch.
Slick Rick (born Richard Martin Lloyd Walters, London, 1965) was blinded in the right eye by broken glass as an infant, and took to wearing an eye path that was as distinctive as his accent. His family moved to the Bronx in 1976, and he went on to attend The High School of Music and Art, where he met Brooklyn MC Dana Dane.

Together, the two formed The Kangol Crew and started hitting the park, high schools, and local clubs. In 1984, Rick met Harlem’s own Doug E. Fresh, and soon became a member of the upcoming Get Fresh Crew. When the two dropped “The Show” and “La Di Da Di,” it was a wrap. A new day had arrived in Hip Hop.
