Ever See This Vintage Slick Rick Freestyle With Rahzel On The Beatbox? (Video)
Here’s a look back at a vintage freestyle by Slick Rick the Ruler, accompanied by human beatbox extraordinaire and Roots-affiliate, Rahzel. The clip is from a promo campaign for an MTV Hip-Hop week that looks to have taken place in the late 90s.
Rick is “fresh dressed like a million bucks,” decked out in a mink coat, suit and tilted brim, while Rahzel recreates an approximation of the beat for “Mona Lisa,” from The Great Adventures of Slick Rick LP. As usual, The Ruler’s flow is effortless and not lacking one bit in swagger. Check out the video.
Bonus Beat: Here’s a quick promo that Rick and Rah did that features another short verse.
