It appeared as if Slick Rick was done recording some time ago when Chamillionaire pulled him out from the bushes. Working on his second album, Chamillionaire wanted to pull off an unexpected move. Having basically no interest in his new music, he decided to recruit a legend for his album. During the summer of 2007, Chamillionaire featured Slick Rick on his controversial song, “Hip Hop Police.”
Even with a cameo from the legendary Slick Rick, “Hip Hop Police” did not do it for the fans and the record sales showed it. Chamillionaire officially fell into the “one hit wonder” category and Slick Rick returned to the shadows. A few years have passed since his creative verse on an underrated and forgotten song. The only time Slick Rick gets any air play, it is on the throwback hour on the radio.
During the time of his Chamillionaire collaboration, there were rumors of a comeback album from the British rapper. But, the comeback album never came and Slick Rick denied working on a new release. With no major collaborations planned, rumors are beginning to swirl about the rapper possibly putting together a new album to be released before the end of this year. The label status of Slick Rick is unknown.
