Hip Hop Legend Sworn in After 23-Year Court Battle
After a 23-year protracted legal process, pioneering Grammy-nominated hip-hop singer Ricky “Slick Rick” Martin Lloyd Walters scored a victory today when he became an American citizen. The English-born rapper and performer was sworn in at an official ceremony alongside dozens of other new citizens in New York.
“I am so proud of this moment – and so honored to finally become an American citizen,” said Slick Rick. “This has been a long time coming for me, and I am relieved to finally put this long chapter behind me. I want to thank everyone – my family, friends and fans – who have supported me and stuck by me over these 23 years. I am truly blessed – and stay tuned, I will have more to announce soon.”
Congrats to the legend!
