Rick the Ruler...

This is probably 1 of my top 10 vintage t-shirts that I've ever come across. The shirt is from The Great Adventures of Slick Rick LP which released in 1988. Im not sure if its a concert tee or just a shirt sold at local record stores but it really doesnt matter because its so DOPE! Rick the Ruler has one of the most unique flows in hip hop and his first LP included hit songs such as "Teenage Love", "Children's Story", "Hey Young World" & " La Di Da Di". Originally from South Wimbledon, London, England, he moved with his family to The Bronx in 1975 where he met Dana Dane, later forming a hip hop duo as Kangol Crew. Rick's characteristic eyepatch was acquired after being blinded in the right eye by broken glass as an infant. Once he gained a degree of wealth, he earned a reputation for wearing an enormous amount of gold and diamond jewelry, including many large necklaces with giant pendants, bracelets, huge rings on each finger, and a gold tooth......the rest is history.
