Slick Rick’s Great Adventures Cross Paths In Miami With Dynas (Premiere)
Slick Rick does not make many guest appearances—it is part of what makes the storyteller laureate so great. However, MC Ricky D must like South Florida veteran MC Dynas, as he starts the party on “Who U?” The rapped story finds Rick in Miami, Florida, at a gym off of Ocean Drive, “workin’ off the belly.” The day progresses, with an interesting series of interactions. Dynas, who has worked with J Dilla and DJ Jazzy Jeff on his The Apartment LP, adds two verses, sandwiched between two from the eye-patched legend.
The song, which also features producer Tony Galvin (Mystikal, T.I., Snoop Dogg), has a whimsical approach—perfect for the Slick Rick legacy. Inside, you’ll hear some Caribbean ad-lib flare, and nods to some of Rick’s The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick style, with the kicks, snares and emphasized conversational cadence.
Dynas & Tony Galvin’s (who handles all of the production) Big & Tall LP will be released in May 2015 on AVX Records and features one guest appearance, as heard above. Stay tuned to Ambrosia For Heads for more info.
