Song With A Story: Slick Rick - "Children's Story"

It's time to add a new feature to my blog, just to keep things fresh and interesting. This feature will be called Song With A Story, and as the title suggests, it will simply involve me posting songs with a story in them. So to kick things off, there's no better way to introduce this feature than with the undisputed king of storytelling Hip Hop, the one and only Slick Rick.

Slick Rick has built his entire career on the art of storytelling, and has become one of the most respected emcees in the game. This particular track, "Children's Story", is one of my favourite storytelling songs of all time, and the perfect way to demonstrate Rick's amazing storytelling abilities. Rick spins the story of a young boy who chooses "the wrong path" in life, and the crazy journey this path takes him on, involving crime, dope fiends, cops and car chases. I don't wanna give too much away though, so just listen to the song for yourself. Enjoy!
