Ain't Nuttin but Trouble

New Slick Rick: Trouble (3.6 mb)

The storyteller is back, this time flowing over some butter strings and warm drums (could it be Large Professor?!). It's a short track, clocking in at just over 2 and a half minutes, way too short for all of us fans who have been waiting for the Rickster to come out with some newness. A car chase that ends as quickly as it begins, the "trouble on the west side highway" is an entertaining short story from the master. The density of the story-telling is reminscent of the hard-to-decipher tales on "The Ruler's Back", but close attention is rewarded.
