RICKY YOU THE NIGGA DONT FORGET IT!



MC Ricky D. The Best. Ever. In n' out of jail, although not entirely his fault. Once in 1990 for shooting his insane cousin and associate after he brought him over from Jamaica to be his security detail, but realized the dude was nuts and was just looking for drug connects. Threats and extortion is common place shit when you're in the Bronx with one eye and thousands of dollars worth of jewelry on you. So that got him 2 years in jail for attempted murder, and he was in an extra 3 years due to immigration issues. Plenty more immigration issues for The Ruler, 17 months in a Florida jail following a cruise ship performance in 2002, and is now awaiting a trial brought on by the Dept. of Homeland Security to deport him to England.

He now lives in the Bronx with his son Ricky, where he manages a few buildings he owns. Weird to think that Slick Rick could be your landlord. He is supposedly recording a new album, but is waiting for a more accepting, mature rap audience to put it out.
