Slick Rick Praises The First-Ever Global Hip-Hop Day

June 8 marks Global Hip-Hop Day, during which we celebrate the global and cultural impact of the genre that was started some 40 years ago

The first-ever event, which is held in conjunction with the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, the office of The Bronx Borough President, and New York radio station Hot 97, will take place in the Bronx and will commemorate hip-hop’s ability to unite people and create positive impact around the globe.

During the day, there will be a public proclamation and unveiling of Hip-Hop Boulevard at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, which is the birthplace of hip-hop and home of legendary hip-hop pioneer Kool Herc.

The special ceremony will also recognize Fat Joe, Slick Rick, Kool Herc and The Lox as this year’s of ICON honorees for their vast musical contributions.

For legendary rapper Slick Rick, Global Hip-Hop Day will help solidify the future of the genre’s place in society.

“It’s a good thing, because hip-hop is due recognition,” Rick said in an interview with HuffPost. “And it’s addressing the influence it has over modern day youth and the future of modern society.”

The English-born MC ― who’s known for his charismatic style and vivid storytelling lyrics ― rose to hip-hop prominence in the 80s with the release of his critically acclaimed debut 1988 album, “The Great Adventures of Slick Rick.”

As one of New York’s longstanding hip-hop radio stations, Hot 97’s SVP/Market Manager of Emmis New York​, Charlie Morgan said that the station aims to celebrate the extension of hip-hop’s global reach.

“We want to both honor the origins of hip-hop music and the hip-hop culture as being born and bred in New York City, specifically the Bronx,” Morgan told HuffPost. “At the same time, we want to celebrate the global reach and impact of this native New York art form. Hot 97 is proud of our heritage and role as the first hip-hop radio station, as well as the role we are playing in the global expansion of this music with the international expansion of Summer Jam and global distribution of Hot 97 online.”

Rick said he’d like for hip-hop to unite fans on topics such as foreign affairs.

“It could be a pulpit for the modern day youth to express its opinions about issues ― global warming, foreign affairs ― as far as how to get along without all the unrest and stuff like that,” he said.

Big Slick: Celebs gather in Kansas City to focus on family, charity this Father’s Day weekend

Back in 2010 I called two friends from my hometown of Overland Park, Kansas with an idea for a charity poker tournament. The friends were Paul Rudd and Jason Sudeikis, and the goal was to have fun with our family and friends while raising $ 50K or so for Children’s Mercy Hospital. It took nine weeks to plan. I named the event Big Slick, and celebrated as year one exceeded expectations both in regard to total money raised and the generosity of all those involved – including friends like Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, George Wendt and Will Forte who flew in for the cause.

This weekend marks the 6th annual Big Slick Celebrity Weekend fundraiser. It’s also Father’s Day. And while the holiday overlap wasn’t intentional, it beautifully highlights everything Big Slick has grown to be about over the past five years. The event has increased in size, awareness, donations and celebrity attendance, but it still remains all about family: those families impacted by childhood illness and seeking care from the incredible doctors and team at Children’s Mercy; as well as my own family – and those of fellow co-hosts Paul Rudd, Jason Sudeikis, David Koechner and Eric Stonestreet – who volunteer countless hours to make Big Slick and the more than $ 2.2MM it’s raised (a record $ 1MM in 2014) possible.

Throughout the months leading up to Big Slick, it really is a familial effort that makes it all happen. My sister Julie and brother-in-law Mark are on the organization board along with Paul’s mother and sister, Jason’s mom, David’s sister, Eric’s sister… not to mention volunteer committees full of countless childhood and college friends. It’s an annual family reunion of sorts that keeps us connected to our roots, introduces new friends to a city that we love, rallies the entire region around charity and continually humbles and inspires us – all while having fun.

The fun of Big Slick weekend includes a variety of fundraising events ranging from celebrity vs. celebrity softball on the field at Royals’ Kaufman Stadium to song and dance numbers and high-ticket auction items. However, the best part of the weekend is always away from the crowds. It’s the hours spent in the halls at Children’s Mercy. Those moments in the hospital are also what brings us, all the volunteers and our celebrity friends – most of whom have no personal connection to Kansas City or the Midwest – back to support Big Slick year after year. Once you meet the children and their parents, hear their stories, meet the nurses and staff… there’s no denying that it’s worth taking the weekend to help these individuals – even if it means being away from your own kids on Father’s Day in order to support these fathers.

There’s an incredible documentary called Inside Pediatrics that was filmed at Children’s Mercy last year, narrated by Paul Rudd and including a glimpse of Big Slick weekend. Whether you’re familiar with the Kansas City area or not, it’s a moving look at the current work being done in child medicine and the challenges faced by our neighbors impacted by illness. It’s what inspires me. This Father’s Day or any day – whether in your hometown or current town – I encourage you to find what inspires you to act. Making a difference could start with something as simple as an idea and phone call. To learn more about Big Slick, visit BigSlickKC.org or Crowdrise.com/BigSlick.

Men’s Hairstyle Trends on the Runway: Long Vs. Slick

A longtime favorite of stylists, slick hair was the go-to look at the fall men’s runway collections. An extreme slicked-back style with high shine, hair was given slightly more volume for an overly dramatic look. Although a bit predictable, this look has the potential to gain popularity once again.
Long hair is no longer a woman’s prerogative. Taking its cue from the rock music scene, this season’s looks included mostly medium and long textured hairstyles with a messy finish. This hairstyle is not expected to be a temporary trend, so anyone opting to grow out their hair will surely find plenty of inspirational images.
