Fashawn Praises Slick Rick

California rapper Fashawn readies his "Champagne and Styrofoam Cups" mixtape for release, the rhymer revealed just how much legendary rapper Slick Rick influenced his sound, style and approach. The visuals on the mixtape artwork are directly inspired by Rick.

âHeâs just the epitome of flavor, the epitome of style, and the epitome of what an icon is to me. And the stories that heâs told. And I feel like myself what I represent and what I mean to todayâs generation is Iâm one of the last standing storytelling emcees,â said Fashawn. âIâm one of those kind of emcees who doesnât just have to get on a song and rhyme about miscellaneous sh*t. Slick Rick was that guy and he could be fly at the same time. Being intelligent, being confident, carrying himself like a king. That whatâs I got from Slick Rick and thatâs how he inspired 'Champagne And Styrofoam Cups.' Well the visuals and the photography for 'Champagne And Styrofoam Cups.'â
