Slick Rick

While “Children’s Story” and “La Di Da Di” are considered hip-hop classics, as well as 1988’s The Great Adventures of Slick Rick, neither has received a Grammy acknowledgement. To make matters worse, Slick Rick would later receive a nomination, but not for his own track, instead on Montell Jordan’s 1995 smash single “This Is How We Do It” which included a sample of his “Children’s Story.”
