by West ·
After years of deportation woes, hip-hop legend Slick Rick has finally been pardoned by New York’s Governor and will be allowed to stay in the Bronx where he has been a resident since the age of 11.
“My family and I are eternally thankful to Governor Paterson, my attorneys Michael Krinsky and Craig Kaplan at Rabinowitz, Boudin, Standard, Krinsky & Lieberman and to all of the people who have supported me throughout the past seventeen years,” Slick said in a statement. “This has been a long and difficult road and I am happy for this to be settled once and for all. I look forward to enjoying this time with my family and friends and to continue leading an honest and productive life.”
