Children's Story • Slick Rick

Ran up the stairs up to the top floor
Opened up the door there, guess who he saw?
Dave the dope fiend shootin’ dope
Who don’t know the meaning of water nor soap

Rick the Ruler highlights that life will put you in dicey situations...and you will have to face the consequences of your actions...and he does it with the most infectious beat in the history of rap.

This is where I take you back, way back, to the origins of what I consider my favorite genre of music...hip hop and rap.

This playlist is a collection of essential tracks that have defined this style of music for decades.
