SR Lyrics & a Baubles

Truck-style jewelry, regal stage gear and blinged-out eye patches–three icons of extravagance – span the arc of Slick Rick’s rise to stardom in the late eighties to today. The charismatic, flamboyant, and witty emcee will greet audiences in Austria, Germany, Sweden and Switzerland this spring, headlining the “Lyrics and Baubles” tour featuring DJ Kaos and The Slickettes . MC Lyte’s Next Top Female MC winner Intelligenz fills the tour’s opening act slot.

“Looking forward to expanding my horizons and experiencing/absorbing other cultures outside of the US.” Rick said. It is going to be nice experience seeing what is going on in the hip hop scene in other parts of the world. I’ll be performing material from all four of my albums, building up momentum for the blowout 30 th anniversary celebrations of The Great Adventures of Slick Rick in November 2018.”

Slick Rick To Co-Headline Germany's Out4FAME Festival

Finally an American Citizen, Slick Rick The Ruler Heads For Foreign Shores

Hip Hop Legend Co-Headlines Germany’s Out4FAME Festival Months After End of Long Legal Saga and Becoming An American Citizen

For the first time since 1990, world-renowned storyteller Slick Rick will take his stage show international, performing in Hunxe, Germany July 31, as part of the Out4FAME Festival. His slated co-headliners are De La Soul, Method Man, Redman, Rick Ross and German rapper Sido.

“I am honored to have been invited to perform at the Out4FAME festival” said Rick. “And to be sharing a stage with my emcee brothers, at one the most highly-regarded hip-hop festivals outside of the United States will be unforgettable. I am looking forward to checking out the German culture, and performing my German fans. I will also be confirming more foreign dates in the very near future.

The announcement comes two months after the Grammy-nominated artist became an American citizen, following a 23-year protracted battle with the United States Department of Homeland Security. The Ruler will maintain his U.K. sovereignty with dual-citizenship status, now labeling Rick the American-Brit. A special United Kingdom performance is being planned for Winter 2016.

"OUT4FAME Festival and OUT4FAME Entertainment is excited to welcome Slick Rick, the legendary emcee and master storyteller to Germany for the first time ever.  As true hip hop fans ourselves, we want to give festival goers a taste of hip hop history" states Mario DaCosta, manager of the festival.
