/ June 3, 2013

After Wu-Tang’s nostalgic performance at Summer Jam XX, VIBE and Guerilla Union dug into the vaults for this backstage sit-down with Ghostface Killah at Rock The Bells 2010.

The 36 Chambers rapper cited Slick Rick as one of his influences. “That’s like my idol right there. I get a lot of my storytelling from Slick Rick,” he says. “Even when I got my eagle on and all those jewels, I got it from this man right here. I was going through a lot of shit when he put [The Adventures of Slick RIck] out. I was in the era of getting fly, selling drugs and dust and it was just everything all in one and Rick was the nigga.”
