“Slick Rick a Hip Hop legend? On what planet, exactly?” ~Frank Isola, New York Daily News
One Big Apple journalist was less than impressed with Slick Rick’s recent halftime performance during a game between the Brooklyn Nets and the New York Knicks. Now, New York Daily News beat writer wants to know “on what planet, exactly” is Slick Rick a noted Hip Hop legend — explaining the real rapper who deserves such credit would be that former correctional officer.
Here’s what Frank Isola had to say on twitter about Slick Rick:
“The Nets are claiming that halftime performer Slick Rick is a Hip Hop legend.
On what planet, exactly? At least when the Nets played at the Meadowlands, Joe Piscopo was in on the joke.
Slick Rick actually thinks he’s entertaining. How does one go about becoming a hip hop legend. If Slick Rick can do it there is hope for all of us.
I heard that to torture prisoners at Guantanamo, the U.S. State Department played Slick Rick’s Greatest Hits over and over. I know of one hip hop legend named Rick. And that would be my guy Rick Ross. You may refer to him as Mr. Ross.”
Was Frank Isola in the wrong for dissing legendary hip hop emcee Slick Rick The Ruler? Of course. Don’t believe me.. Ask Jay Z.
