Released November 1, 1988, The Great Adventures of Slick Rick has remained one of hip-hop’s most enduring and influential albums of all time. At the time of its release, during rap’s “golden era,” the recording earned a rare five-mic score from The Source magazine. It remained at the top of Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart for ten weeks, producing the hit singles “Mona Lisa”, “Children’s Story,” “The Ruler’s Back,” “Hey Young World” and “Teenage Love.”

Three more acclaimed albums followed on the iconic Def Jam Records, and Rick collaborated with dozens of fellow artists within and outside of his genre. He even made an appearance in his fair share of movies and videos. In 2018, Rick remained the most sampled hip-hop artist of all times. His compositions have been chopped, interpolated and incorporated well over 650 times. The rapper’s passions have also led to him devoting much time to mentoring youth and raising awareness of issues affecting underserved communities.

The 36-year-old explained, “Briar has seen me on TV, but she doesn’t really understand what it means. She also thinks I could be a cartoon. She doesn’t really understand the concept.” Eddie’s kids know what he does, but “they don’t care.” “Take Two” premieres tonight on ABC.
