Slick Rick At Abode in Pictures... Wichita Hip-Hop At Its Finest

When I first heard that Naymlis was going to bringing Slick Rick to Abode I really couldn't believe it.  I had this date marked on my calendar for weeks!  I can't even begin to tell you the number of times I would watch the Children's Story video on Rap City coming home after from middle school.  This man was a true pioneer so to say I was excited to see him coming to Wichita was an understatement.  

The show had opening acts from the Levvelheads, Crim De La and Approach (from Lawrence).  I saw quite a few of the die hard local hip-hop scene usuals and also some who don't usually come out.  Check out the visuals from the show below... Enjoy! ~ @RoyceOnTheRadio

Big up to the Levvelheads.  I was very impressed with them!  It was great to see what the next generation of hip-hop music in this city has to offer.

Approach performing.  The first time I saw him perform was around 2000 in Lawrence, Kansas.  To this day he has one of the most energetic sets I have ever seen.
