Slick Rick

In the south-west London district of Mitcham Walters was born and raised, but then he later moved with his British Jamaican family to The Bronx in 1977 where he met Dana Dane with whom he later formed a hip hop duo known as the Kangol Crew. Walters received his characteristic eye patch after being blinded in the right eye by broken glass as an infant.Once he gained a degree of wealth, Walters earned a reputation for wearing a significant amount of gold and diamond jewelry.

He first gained success in the rap industry by joining Doug E. Fresh’s Get Fresh Crew, using the stage name MC Ricky D. He was featured on the single “The Show” and its popular B-side ”La Di Da Di”. La Di Da Di featured Walters’ rapping over Doug E. Fresh’s beatbox. Both tracks gained some mainstream attention. In 1988 Walters’ solo debut The Great Adventures of Slick Rick came out on Def Jam Records. The album was very successful, reaching the #1 spot on Billboard‘s R&B/Hip-Hop chart. It also featured three charting singles: “Children’s Story”, “Hey Young World”, and “Teenage Love”.
