This past Friday, after 30 years on U.S. soil and a six year bid in prison, Slick Rick has earned his right to be called an American citizen. The Ruler was born in the U.K. and has been fighting to become a citizen for years and now has a duel citizenship in the UK and America.
“I am so proud of this moment – and so honored to finally become an American citizen,” said Slick Rick. “This has been a long time coming for me, and I am relieved to finally put this long chapter behind me. I want to thank everyone – my family, friends and fans – who have supported me and stuck by me over these 23 years. I am truly blessed – and stay tuned, I will have more to announce soon.”
