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.

New Issue of ‘Batman’ Will Explore His Catholic Upbringing & Why He’s Not a Christian Anymore

The recent run of Batman comics by red-hot comic book writer Tom King has really leaned into Batman’s human side, exploring his loneliness, mental health and doomed romantic life more profoundly than any in recent memory. And now, it appears, the series is going to tackle yet another of the Dark Knight’s all-too-human experiences: lost faith.In a preview of an upcoming issue illustrated by Lee Weeks and released to Inverse, Bruce Wayne reveals that his father raised him as a Christian. Wayne’s father, as you may be aware, is no longer in the picture, and when he died, he took Bruce’s fledgling faith with him. No word on whether or not Bruce is going to rediscover his faith as part of this story, but he’s not in a great place, generally. His bride-to-be, Catwoman, stood him up at the altar and he’s in trouble with the law for possibly botching a case. So, if ever there was a time for Batman to turn to a higher power, it might be now.You can read the full preview here.
