Gather 'round party goers, thats if you're still livin'

Seeing this picture put me back onto Slick Rick's music. My favorite album by him is "The Great Adventures of Slick Rick"

Throughout the album, Slick Rick plays two characters- Slick Rick the Ruler and Emcee Ricky D. Within the context of these chronicled accounts, a variety of subjects are addressed; many of which inject at least some amount of humor, whether it be overtly obvious or not.
