After a 23 year struggle and a five year stint in prison, Slick Rick was finally granted American citizenship in a ceremony held earlier this morning. In a press release, the British born veteran and hip-hop legend expressed his happiness and plans for the future.
“I am so proud of this moment – and so honored to finally become an American citizen,” said Slick Rick. “This has been a long time coming for me, and I am relieved to finally put this long chapter behind me. I want to thank everyone – my family, friends and fans – who have supported me and stuck by me over these 23 years. I am truly blessed – and stay tuned, I will have more to announce soon.”
We’re looking forward to seeing what Slick Rick has up his sleeve.
