Nas & Slick Rick live: Children’s Story

Last night, Slick Rick celebrated his 50th birthday in style at NYC’s bowling alley/venue Brooklyn Bowl. Among the festivities was a historic performance of his 1988 classic “Children’s Story,” with Rick aided by Nas onstage. Watch it above.

The absurd number of chains worn between the two veterans could probably pay for a few college educations (or at least cause some severe neck pain), but both men seem very accustomed to these sort of accessories onstage. Later on in the evening, Nas would write “HAPPY BDAY SLICK RICK THE RULER!!!!!!!!” on his Instagram of the two industry stalwarts. This is how we chill from ’88 ’til.
