In 1988 Slick Rick released the hit single, Children’s Story, off his Def Jam debut, The Great Adventures of Slick Rick. Now 19 years later, minus an eye patch and plus a beard, a different Rick is re-telling the story. Although DJBooth cannot confirm or deny if Children’s Story (Uncle Ricky) will be included on Ross’ new album, Trilla (set for release on December 26th), the self-proclaimed ‘Boss’ exhibits plenty in common with his industry counterpart of the same first name. Replace the gold chains with some platinum and Rick Ross’ reworked story is as fresh as it is charming.
