WILMIGNTON, DE — Each one, teach one.
That’s the message Hip Hop artist Richard Martin Lloyd Walters, who is better known in the rap world as Slick Rick, brought to the Wilmington Library on Feb. 23 as part of the Voices of Power Series.
The British American artist, known for his storytelling in songs such as “Children’s Story” and “Hey Young World” talked about fashion, jewelry and leveling up in the community.
He said he has always been an entertainer, but rap created a space for his success.
“As a child I just liked to tell stories,” Walters said. “I was just having fun and when rap came out, I wanted to put it into rap form, and it gave me a lane to exist.”
Wearing a gold sweater, black shirt, black apple cap and black signature eye patch accented by a fat gold chain with an oversized charm, he gave a performance for the standing-room-only crowd. The Atlantic City Focus team was in the building for the performance. See concert footage below.
