This is Rick's latest album, I consider this his second best. Ofcourse he couldnt ever top his debut album, but he comes pretty close. Especially the beginning of the album grasped me with blazing tracks like Kill Niggas, Street Talkin and Me and Nas. A little too much tracks on here too, shame there's filler on here like Trapped by me and Impress the Kid......

Very, very nice cameo with Raekwon too, same goes for Unify with Snoop Dogg and We Turn It On with Doug E. Fresh

This album is a lovely laid back listen with a relaxed Slick Rick flowing over laid back beats. Flow and lyrics 9/10. Beats 8/10.

Total 8.5/10

ahahah finaly the right Section. I like Slick Rick and his albums, one of my favourite UK rappers, he has a unique style and i like it. I agree with you that his debut was his best work so far. I wonder what happened with him? Does anyone have some current information on him?

Yeah I agree, great album. Kind of suprising after some unimportant releases. The Ruler's Back e.g. Frozen, Street Talkin' and Me and Nas bring it to your hardest and who rotten 'em are the best tracks on this one. 8/10

Slick Rick is probably my favorite rapper that came from the 80s. Yeah, even over Rakim, BDK, etc...

This album was sick but had a few flaws... was surprised that he sold pretty well for someone who was on hiatus for so long. I'd give it a ... 8.5 or 9 out of 10.

slick rick is illllllll. such a different style.

i actually like this album better than the first.

one. because i think his vioce is more matured, just a personal preference thing i guess.

two. the production is just a lot better, i dont think anyone can argue with that.

'adults only' is such a great/funny song to me. booming baseline too.
