i hate when people say slick rick like they were actually pumping his music through their speakers all day, lol. ya'll only saying slick rick because it just seems like the "right thing to say". nobody could tell me one song aside from "lotty dotty" and "children's story". look, slick rick will always be remembered as one of the greatest storytelling rappers to do it. he was one of the pioneers, but nas took that and revolutionized the art of storytelling. please give me one slick rick song that's on par with "one love", "the message", "i gave you power", "shootouts", "suspect", "undying love", "rewind", "2nd childhood", "what goes around", "blaze a 50", "sekou story", "live now"......

and if you haven't listened to any of those songs then you have no say so whatsoever. nas is the best story telling rapper of all time, not just our time. and he pays homage to slick for doing it before him.

im DISGUSTED at how many votes there were for Nas. im fu*king new school and i know that Slick Rick is better than Nas. u people should be ashamed of yourselves
look slick rick is a legend and his songs are classics that i still bump but nas has done it for 14 years straight and he still puts out joints like death anniversary where the story of imagining he didn't exist and providing a story to go with it are unparellel...everyone love slick rick but calm down......

I disagree. They are different types of storytellers. Slick Rick always has humourous stories, whereas nas goes for more serious tales. I think it's a pretty good question, to say rick is much better than nas is wrong in my veiw, their pretty dam even. Also slick ricks stories are ALOT more simplistic than nas' stories, meaning ricky doesnt sound very intellectual when he spits his stories, not saying it's a bad thing, but it shows another difference in their story telling techniques.

not even gonna argue cuz i know if i do that a lot of nas stans are gonna be hitting that hate button. nas stans are the worst stans in the music business, so ima just say i disagree with you.

Nas took over the song writing title
Slick Rick is second

Nas - Undying Love

Uh..
Pacino life, G a roll, casino dice
at the Mirage, Vegas strip, neon lights
Gamblers, puffin cigars, couples and stars
Flashin cameras, dealers, shufflin cards
Spent the weekend, already miss New York and it's odd
cause I'm the first to say it got too many hustlers who rob
I never hang out, when we do we bust the four-five
cause shells comin back at us while we jump in the ride
Flyin, duckin, our bi*ches in the club cluckin
Tellin my wife who I was dancin with like I was fu*kin
Flew back, Monday evening from the bottom where the sun was beamin
to the concrete jungle of cement
Limousine's from LaGuardia airport, sleepin
Told my dogs peace, kept in movin, I was beat when
got to my crib, where the hell my keys went?
Ringin the bell, heard a yell but wasn't sure
Dropped my luggage to the ground, put my ear to the door
Slow music, H-Town, no that's down low
My baby's, drop Mercedes is parked, I creep around yo
to the back, she must be inside and can't hear
Probably upstairs, in the mirror, doin her hair
I walked in through the back door entrance
Shocked it was unlocked, when I walked in, I smelled incense
chased by a weed aroma, empty Guinnesses
and lipstick marks on like three empty Coronas
A pair of blue jeans on the carpet; size 12 Timberlands
Somethin swingin on the ceilin fan, I stopped it
Swingin slower and slower..
On the last swing I saw it was a G-string and heard laughin
Thought about my nine-side Glock but somethin made me disregard it
Started my way up to where the noise and music was at
Froze, I couldn't react
Bedroom door opened a crack, seen wifey layin with some n*gga
mumblin sh*t, he had one hand on her a.ss
and she was rubbin his d!ck, toastin wine glasses
Cherry scented candles was lit, couldn't handle the sh*t
Searchin for words I found none, without a sound
I left the house with a sick smile and took my gun
Now I'm out buggin, whylin, what I'm gon do?
Call my man Horse, meet me outside, I'm comin through

{Nas singing}
I thought you loved me
I thought you cared for me
I thought you needed me
Did you believe in me? * repeat 2X *

[Nas]
Got up with Horse, showed a look on my face was mad lost
I ain't know whether to cry or just, try to laugh it off
"Son you home early -- they wiped you out that quick?"
I said, "Nah," showed him the plastic with nine in the clip
Hopped in the whip, popped in the disc, pressed play
To the Grand Central, from the Van Wyck Expressway
I said, "Bet you'll never guess in a million years
what I just saw happenin -- and probably still is
Snuck in my crib - some n*gga fu*kin my wiz
I saw dem, they ain't see me, I ducked and I slid
I'ma grab shorty, I need you to grab the n*gga for me"
Just when I thought I found love, she sh*tted on me
Shopped in Vegas, a present, for our engagement
20 G's on a ring I would have hit her today with
My surprise couldn't match the one she had for me
We pulled up, he was walkin out the house backwardly
Parked in the back of my house, they couldn't see us
Ran to the side of my house, c*cked the heater
Walked to the front when I talked he had junk
bi*ch tried to slam the door shut, got caught in Horse foot
Shot the Spanish kid in the rib, drug him in
Grabbed her face, say goodbye to your undercover friend
One between the eye, she's died, by mistake
Must've held the gat too tight, pointed at her face
Heard somebody knock -- Horse helped me hide the bodies
Heard si-rens, I guess we goin out we out like kamikazes
We surrounded, red lights flashin, who's inside?
Came out a bullhorn, I'm contemplatin suicide
Horse asked me for the Mac, he gave me dap, one love
Cocked the strap, then he ran out the back
Mad shots couldn't tell what was goin on
Sat on the floor near my dead girl, put her in my arms
Pulled her ring out my pocket I was savin
Put it on her ring finger c*cked the glock, and started prayin
to Muhammad and Allah, the most beneficial
through you, all things are possible, I know you're listenin
I never meant for this to happen, I never dreamed
this'd be my fate, such a grotesque, murder scene
On that note, same time, the cops busted in
Kissed my lady, her blood on my lips, I said "Amen"
Put the nine to my head, pulled the hammer, held her close
Squeeze the toast, said to her, "Now unto God, we elope"

.. we elope ..
