Slick Rick Visits Shyne in Belize
The legendary Slick Rick recently took a trip to Central America to link up with Shyne, and luckily for us, the two commemorated their hangout sesh with an epic picture. You can see the picture for yourself on Slick Rick's Instagram post below.
"Went to visit my brotha @shyne_po in Belize. Thank you for your kindness & generosity," reads the caption for Rick's post of himself and the former Bad Boy rapper sitting atop the country's colorful sign monument.
One can only imagine what these two rap titans ended up discussing when they were hanging out, but we bet they had a really good time in the beautiful Central American country. Belize is actually Shyne's native country, but he moved to the U.S. when he was just a small child.
After serving about nine years at Clinton Correctional Facility for his role in an infamous shooting at a Manhattan night club in 1999, Shyne was deported back to Belize, where he's been since 2009. Still, doesn't look like Belize is too bad of a place to be, especially when you've got Slick Rick pulling-up for a visit.
In other Slick Rick-related news, the rapper's classic "Children's Story" is being turned into a children's book.

The book will come along with a special reissue of the album when it's released on Record Store Day on April 22.
