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.
