Slick Rick - The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick 2LP Deluxe Edition with Hardcover Book And Eyepatch

Def Jam

Newly Remastered and Expanded 30th Anniversary Deluxe Colored 2LP Edition in Hardbound Book featuring 5 Previously Unreleased Bonus Tracks & Reproduction of Infamous Eyepatch!

The Great Adventures of Slick Rick, the 1988 debut album from Slick Rick - the inimitable British-American MC and third signing to the legendary Def Jam Recordings label - is widely regarded as one of hip-hop's seminal masterpieces. To celebrate its 30th anniversary, Def Jam releases a newly remastered and expanded 30th Anniversary hardbound book colored 2LP Deluxe Edition featuring four previously unreleased demos and the previously unreleased session track "Snakes of The World Today," plus a reproduction of Slick Rick's infamous eyepatch, lyric sheets and photo prints.

Driven by the back-to-back chart successes of "Teenage Love" (Top 20 R&B, Top 10 Rap), and "Children's Story" (Top 5 R&B and Rap, and consistently cited as one of the Top 50 Rap hits of all time), The Great Adventures of Slick Rick soared to No. 1 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart for five weeks. The album was one of the first hip-hop LPs to be certified platinum by the RIAA and it provided a solid foundation for Slick Rick, who went on to release three successful follow-up albums on Def Jam: The Ruler's Back (1991), Behind Bars (1994), and The Art of Storytelling (1999).

• Original album remastered on colored 2LP in hardbound book
• 5 new bonus tracks
• Reproduction of Slick Rick's eyepatch
• Reproduction of lyric sheets
• Prints of various Slick Rick photos
