The Storyteller Comes to RENO!
There's nothing like the Slick Rick Experience. Every album is a parallel universe where old-time radio and urban culture collide. Aural theater merges with ghetto fantasy. Rick becomes a character actor with voice-throwing chops a ventriloquist would envy and narrative powers greater than Stephen King. In theory, it all seems preposterous - impossible to pull off. But because Rick has such a genuine gift on the mic - dexterity, cleverness, wit, articulation, fluidity - it works like gangbusters.
