The Great Adventures of Slick Rick

The Great Adventures of Slick Rick is a hardcore rap album by East Coast hip hop performer Slick Rick, released in 1988 (see 1988 in music). While Slick Rick's distinctive delivery and humorous tone earned him many fans, making this album one of the most popular (and last) albums from the golden age of East Coast rap, his vulgarity and misogyny (such as on "Treat Her Like a Prostitute") also earned him many detractors.

The Great Adventures of Slick Rick topped Billboard's Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart, and peaked at #31 on the Billboard 200.
