Slick Rick is a king of marketing a look. Younger fans may not recognize his music but you can bet they know what he looks like. In an industry where you need to have a "look" in order to get booked, Slick Rick is a true OG. Before the colorful dreads and face tattoos, Slick Rick was rocking his eye patch. He also has a dope collection of jewelry. He's rocked chains that were floor length,eye patches that were diamond-encrusted, and much more. He's showed us his drip, showing it all off for GQ in a new video.
In the past, Rappers like Quavo and others have shown off their collections for the GQ series and it's about time that the real OG stepped up. Slick Rick was in the building as he flashed his jewels on camera. In the video, he goes back a few years to show off his older pieces, then he comes back to the present day where he's still copping diamonds. Slick Rick is known to buy the biggest piece at the store he's in, he loves to walk away with heavy weight around his neck. Slick Rick also flashed his Gucci-link chains, magnificent medallions and expensive watches.
