Hell Yeah 20 Years later and I'm still listening to his debut.He influenced a lot of artist.So what if he's not "Rock"You whiney white boys are funny.

Hey Leon - You seem to be hung up on this color issue. We maybe funny - you are not.

Yeah, us whiney white boys also know his track record isn't so hot when it comes to the I & I arguments given here. Remember, you said it yourself on another page - African Americans gave up on rock cause you felt it was boring. To come back to it and then claim you know who should be in the Hall after all these years is perhaps, just perhaps stretching it a mite.

Hey Dameon I wasn't trying to be funny!And I am very hung up on color.
Posted by Leon on Friday, 09.12.08 @ 16:45pm
Hey Cheesecorp I can't have an opinion about the hall because my people have given up on the genre Rock&Roll?lol I can comment on what ever I want.The last track on Slick Ricks Classic Debut "The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick"pretty much sums up the rest of my feelings about this.

Hey Dameon I think Slick Rick should Be a double inductee,as a member of the rap group Doug E Fresh And the Get Fresh Crew and a solo artist.Like it or not there will be some Hip hop in the hall.its that same whiny attitude that killed rock&roll.Hip Hop is what Rock use to be.

Leon...as far as "my people" go, Dameon, Lax25, Cheesecrop, Philip, mrxyz, etc... are "my people"!!! Why? Because we all love the music and love discussing and having lively debates about it. I don't know what "color" any of the above are, and I rightfully don't care. Try being part of the solution and quit being part of the problem...stand on your own two feet and quit trying to speak for "your people". You'll find a lot of them don't share your views...AT ALL!!! I know my friends don't.

Hey Cheesecrop Very mature respons.But I will always see things that way I see them.May be next time I'll word it better.
Posted by Leon on Friday, 09.12.08 @ 21:00pm
Hmmm...why don't you define "my people" then. Yep, to be part of the solution, you've got to know what the problem is. To me, you're obviously hung up on color even though you don't even know what types of people you're talking to. One thing rock did in the 50's was break down racial barriers, now a bunch of ignorant fools want to build them back up.

Here is the problem between you and me. I have no p;roblem with groundbreaking Hip-Hop bands being inducted; you think that the white boys here don't want to see it. The question would be; when the time comes for Hip-Hop to have there own HoF, will they induct Blondie, Aerosmith and Anthrax? Or will they keep the long haired white boys out? I don't give a sh*t one way or another. But I do know this, I was listening to Motwon before you were born and I was playing the Blues before you knew what music was.

Hey Dameon If there was a Hip-Hop Hall Of Fame I would not have a problem with long haired white boys getting in.Anthrax,Aerosmith,
Posted by Leon on Saturday, 09.13.08 @ 06:06am
The way I am reading it, the only one whining here is you. And don't even try to lecture me on the Blues.

They haven't deported him back to Bloody England yet !!! Treat 'Em Like A Prostitute.

Hey Joe-Ski the govenor of New York just granted him a parden.20 years later and that album still "Rocks".

As for Slick Rick - I always have to stick up for my Bronx mates. People don't give the Bronx enough credit; afterall, it produced me.

Hey Cheesecrop 1 word perfect.Now who do we talk to about getting this off the ground?You know my trips to the record shop have been pretty interesting since I stumbled on to this website.There's a lot of acts that I didn't even know were not in The Hall.And it only gets worse as the years go by.
Posted by Leon on Sunday, 09.14.08 @ 18:07pm
I say no.

Slick Rick was a one album wonder and brought cursing to Rap Music through Def Jam. Did I vote for him, no. There are many others in Rap Music that never got the credit because Hip-hop never knew them. I.e. - Crash Crew,Spoonin G, Super Rhymes, Kurtis Blow, Treacherous 3, Fearlous 4, ect. First we have to acknowledge those who started "Rap Music", then we can start giving credit to the people "America" knows and made famous. The should be a Rap Music Hall of Fame, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Soul Music Hall of Fame, Country Hall of Fame, and one big music Hall of Fame for all categories of music that they give Grammys to. Stop being so segregated, this is 2009 and we have a Black President.
