1. Did Slick Rick Deserve To Get Boo-ed For This Performance at Last Night's Knicks-Nets Game?


    At halftime of last night's New York Knicks - Brooklyn Nets game none other than hip-hop legend Slick Rick performed - a special guest to commemorate a special night, this being the first regular season contest between the clubs at the Nets' new BK home, The Barclays Center. Unfortunately, according to reports Rick the Ruler was roundly boo-ed during his set, leading Knicks' beat writer Frank Isola to publicly question Rick's status as a "hip-hop legend" (because NBA beat-writers are obviously experts on such matters). This in turn led to a lot of people shitting on Isola on the Twitter , and scolding the fans who showed so much disrespect to MC Ricky D. Well, today fan video of Rick's performance hit the Interwebz, and well, let's just say there were obviously some technical issues involved. Still, painful as it was did it warrant the boo-birds? Watch the video, egotripland people, and you tell us.

      Nah. Nets fans don't suck. That performance did. I love Slick Rick as much as the next person and even I would've booed that...smh. Maybe his in ear monitor wasn't working.

      Its not really about the booing and its more to do with Isolas stupid comments about slick ricks greatest hits being used as torture etc. The guy really had no clue and decided to expose his ignorance on twitter.

      I'm a huge Slick Rick fan, but his live performances, at least lately, are pretty bad. I saw him a couple years ago and it was a really boring, half assed show. That said, he will always get respect for "The Great Adventures of", that's a pure hip hop classic.

      It's obvious from the beginning that he couldn't hear the track....so I say Barclays Center sound sucks......must've brought the same shitty system over from the Izod center....lol

      Legend or not he's there to entertain, he failed, they booed plus it's not like they were there to see him

    • zulunyc

    • Mr Postman

      "Hey Young World" gets any party started!

    • Justified Slick Rick Stan

      I don't care if he performed the entirety of "Behind Bars (Warren G Remix)" WITH the Warren G verse, you DO NOT BOO Slick Rick! That is all.

      He started off telling the sound guy to turn the beat up, as a rapper you cant do shit until you have established your rythm. i totally blame the sound guy, case closed.

      I saw him last year in Austin and it was sick, maybe he had an off night.
