With the 25th anniversary of his debut classic, The Great Adventures of Slick Rick, coming up, Rick the Ruler has announced that he’ll be touring across the US.
Kicking off in Louisville, Kentucky at the Headliners Ballroom, Slick Rick will be hitting up cities Nashville, Miami, Seattle, Denver, Boston, New York and more, to celebrate and perform classic album cuts like “Children’s Story,” “The Ruler’s Back,” “Hey Young World” and “Teenage Love.”
Released November 1, 1988 via Def Jam/Columbia/CBS, The Great Adventures of Slick Rick has remained one of hip-hop’s most enduring, influential and frequently sampled of all time.
At the time of its release, the album received a 5-mic score from The Source (back when The Source mattered) and stayed at the top of the Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart for five weeks.
