NY Governor pardons Slick Rick!

Some good news from Albany, NY. Newly appointed Governor David Patterson pardoned hip hop pioneer Slick Rick for a 1991 gun charge. In 1988 Slick Rick released, "The Great Adventures of Slick Rick", often considered one of the greatest hip hip albums of all-time. "La Di Dadi" and "The Show", two songs he performed as a member of Doug E. Fresh's GET FRESH CREW, are unquestionably considered two of the greatest hip hop songs of all-time.

Over the years, the native Brit has dealt with legal problems stemming from the fact he is not an American citizen. The full and unconditional pardon should allow Slick Rick to seek relief from deportation from the federal immigration courts.

Cheers to Slick Rick, a true genius, pioneer and innovator.
