"I don’t really pose my people, but I always had a studio set up ready. Slick Rick came to my studio with Bill Adler, the press officer for Def Jam. They needed a press shot for him, we got a bottle of champagne and we’re sitting around, drinking champagne and chatting. Basically I had my spot marked out on the seamless and he stood there, put his bag down on the floor while holding the bottle, and then just snap, I took that picture within the first two minutes of the photo shoot and I knew that was it. We had the hang out and he was pretty happy. He just posed himself and I love that. To me that image was just so hip-hop.

There’s one other thing I want to say about his style. Slick Rick is a Brit, he was was born and raised in the south-west London to an English-Jamaican family. His style reminded me of the Jamaican kids I saw in Brixton, a bit ska, 2 tone, mod. He’s wearing a slim suit and a slim tie, he’s got a Kangol hat on. He’s kinda echoing that whole look." - Janette Beckman
