January 9th is "Slick Rick the Ruler Day"!


A moment in hip-hop history occurred on January 9, 2015, as music veteran Slick Rick the Ruler kicked off his 50th birthday celebration with a memorable performance at their annual Brooklyn Bowl bash. Another moment in history of the evening was Rick being honored by Mr. Ruben Diaz Jr., President of The Borough of the Bronx, who stated that “on behalf of its 1.4 million residents and on the occasion of the rapper’s 50th birthday, proclaim January 9th, 2015 as Slick Rick the Ruler Day in the Bronx.”
