In the midst of celebrating the 30th anniversary of his iconic debut album The Great Adventures of Slick Rick — a five-mic classic, might we add! — rap vet Slick Rick is schooling us all on something he knows very well: jewelry.



Sitting down with GQ Magazine for their “On The Rocks” video series, the “Children’s Story” MC gave an extensive look into his legendary collection of bling — ropes, rings, medallions and all types of chains n’thangs included. Some of the anecdotes he touches on include being inspired by Mr. T’s gold-encrusted neck, a few of his completely iced-out eyepatches, and other guys in the game that he gives props to, including French Montana, Diddy, Busta Rhymes and of course 2 Chainz for obvious reasons.

Watch the full GQ feature on Slick Rick and his many chains above, and let us know which one is the coldest over on our Facebook and Twitter!
