Fridays are always stacked with an assortment of new music in need of your attention, but Slick Rick's "No Stylist" verse should have no problem working its way into your release day agenda.
For his part, Rick uses his new verse on the 2018 French Montana and Drake collab to take aim at people who drop "names that I wasn't impressed with" to push "mad ugly clothes." Up top, catch the A Rock Jackson-produced lyric video for Slick's "No Stylist" remix.
Back in October, Slick Rick rolled through the official video for the original "No Stylist." ASAP Rocky, Luka Sabbat, Dapper Dan, and Cam'ron also made cameos in the clip from directors Glenn Michael and Christo.
"I was glad that French Montana pulled me into the 'No Stylist' video," Rick previously told Coveteur of the shoot. "I don't need a stylist, so we went that route—I went that route. I wrote [a verse for the song] a long time ago, but it hasn’t come out yet. I was in the video, but they didn't use the verse. They said they're going to use it later on, so we'll see how that goes."
Friday, Slick Rick also marked the 30th anniversary of his debut album The Great Adventures of Slick Rick with the release of a special remastered and expanded edition of the 1988 classic. The re-release comes in multiple packaging options and sees the inclusion of previously unreleased demos for "Mona Lisa" and more. Head to his official website for more.
Thursday, Slick Rick stopped by the Power 106 offices for a quick interview on legacy and the current genrelessness debate at the center of the industry. "If it works, if you have the ability to draw a country audience into the hip-hop audience, then do you, if it works," Rick said of the "Old Town Road" success. "When we was growing up, we all liked certain country records. Glen Campbell, all that. There might be a little Dolly Parton . . . If you're able to draw us, then good for you. If we're able to draw you, then [good for us]."
