It was the moment I desired - finally a Slick Rick U.K tour! The Ruler's first time back on the manor since him & Doug did The Show on Top Of The Pops in 1985 apparently. He's even gonna be bubblin' in Dublin for Donal & this blog's 6 Irish readers. The only question here is, is his live show any cop?
Ya host caught the Pete Rock & CL Smooth reunion tour a couple of weeks ago and Pete Rock accidentally managed to piss off the REAL HIP HOP brigade by playing Stayin' Alive by the Bee Gees as their intro, while CL was a surprisingly consummate performer/convivial raconteur with crystal clear vox, banter about British sport, and corresponding dance routines for every song: hulking out for I Get Physical, a variation on the cooking dance for The Main Ingredient, finger countin' for One In A Million, air-saxophone for T.R.O.Y and so on. The only downside was they did Lots Of Lovin' when everybody was waiting for All Souled Out or even a medley of Skinz and The Basement.
Old rappers should be heard live and not seen on t'internet. Pete Rock is gonna have kittens if he ever catches wind of that Instagram video of the mother & toddler rapping along to TEC & Maine Musik's Ain't No Coming Down.
