Slick Rick’s “Children Story” is one of the greatest songs of all time. Can it also be one of the greatest books?

We’ll soon find out.

Get on Down is releasing a “Children’s Story children’s book. The book will be 18 pages and it will be released alongside a re-release of The Great Adventures of Slick Rick, the rapper’s 1988 masterful debut album. Also cool is the fact that a 12” piece of artwork from the original “Children’s Story” video will drop alongside the book.

What makes this a must-cop for collectors is the quality: the pictures will be beautifully drawn and painted and will showcase scenarios straight out of the song and video:

That’s still a couple of weeks away. So start saving coins now.
