Slick Rick Finally Gains US Citizenship After Over 20 Years Of Fighting


Put on 10 or more gold chains, a Kangol, and an eye patch to celebrate Slick Rick’s victory in the fight to gain citizenship. For those of you who don’t know Ricky “Slick Rick” Martin Lloyd Walters was born in England and never rightfully gained proper citizenship. The process was held up by various legal issues, including being sentenced to prison for a self defense shooting back in 1990. “Ricky D” has been fighting for dual citizenship for 23 years. The legendary MC made Hip-Hop classics like “Children’s Story”, “La-Di-Da-Di”, “The Show” and more. Rick was over joyed by his long awaited victory and had this to say:

“This has been a long time coming for me, and I am relieved to finally put this long chapter behind me. I want to thank everyone – my family, friends and fans – who have supported me and stuck by me over these 23 years. I am truly blessed – and stay tuned, I will have more to announce soon.”

We’re happy for Slick “Tha Ruler” Rick  and we’ve posted one of his classics below, peep:
