DAY 76 GRAMMY CHASE: PRETTY SLICK INDEED

Day 76, feeling like royalty. So, while I was just checking out one of the best rappers to ever touch a mic and tell or sell a story, I asked  myself, “Was Slick Rick ever nominated for a Grammy?” Well, the answer is yes, but it wasn’t for his debut classic The Adventures of Slick Rick. Keeping true to his name, it was actually pretty slick how Rick found himself nominated for a Grammy.

Slick Rick is credited as the Producer of the ever-popular hip hop crime-tale with the Keystone Cops inspired video, “A Children’s Story.” Slick Rick made it a hit in 1988, until 7 years later, enter Montel Jordan, with “This is How We Do It.”
Montel Jordan was nominated for a Grammy Best R&B Vocal Performance, Male, for the #1 spot, Billboard hit-song, and as a result of Montel sampling Slick Rick’s song, The Ruler was listed as a writer, therefore enabling him to mention himself as a “Grammy Nominated artist” for the rest of his life That was Pretty Slick, Rick! I REFUSE to post the Montel Jordan video as it was one of those hits from 15 years ago, that should remain a part of the 90’s instead of still getting regular rotation in 2010.

Unless someone knows otherwise of better, thats the theory I’m going with.
