His music has been sampled and interpolated over 600 times, by such artists as Beyonce, Beastie Boys, TLC, Nas, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Black Star, The Notorious B.I.G., Snoop Dogg and Color Me Badd. In the process, he became the most sampled hip-hop artist ever. Many of the new songs became hit singles, underscoring his timeless influence.

Slick Rick has also acted and cameo’d in 10 movies and videos. He has four Billboard 200 records, and 14 Top 100 Singles worldwide. Music isn’t his only passion; on top of being a uniquely gifted lyricist, Rick is an actor and music producer known his fashion sense and for a growing list of business and philanthropic endeavors. The artist is known for his infamous eye-patch and heavily adorned jewelry. This self-expression through personal style has become his signature and has never been successfully duplicated. Recognizing the need for positive influences, he has devoted his time to mentoring youth on the dangers of violence. Additionally, Rick has partnered with various organizations to raise awareness and funds for the issues impacting underserved communities. With more than three decades in the world of music, this legacy artist is still striving, still working, still giving back to his community and still ruling!
