Slick Rick had a rough time at Barclays Center. Taking the stage during the New York Knicks vs Brooklyn Nets game, Rick was booed during his halftime performance. He shouted out Jay-Z and Beyonce before launching into favorites "Hey Young World" and "Mona Lisa," but the audience turned on Rick and booed for the remainder of his show.
One NYDN writer began dissing Rick in a series of tweets that questioned the emcees entire legacy.
"The Nets are claiming that halftime performer Slick Rick is a 'Hip Hop legend.' On what planet, exactly?," Frank Isola tweeted. "At least when the Nets played at the Meadowlands, Joe Piscopo was in on the joke. Slick Rick actually thinks he's entertaining."
"What does one go about becoming a 'hip hop legend.' If Slick Rick can do it there is hope for all of us," he continued. "I heard that to torture prisoners at Guantanamo, the U.S. State Department played Slick Rick's Greatest Hits over and over."
"I know of one hip hop legend named Rick," he added. "And that would be my guy Rick Ross. You may refer to him as Mr. Ross."
