Governor Pardons Slick Rick?

Uh... what?

I was never much into Slick Rick. Your boy with the eye patch was a hit in the '80s with the now classics like "La-Di-Da-Di" and "Children's Story".

Then in 1991 he shot his cousin and another dude (Slick said they were both stealing money from him).

They both survived and your boy Slick spent about 5 years in jail for attempted murder and various weapons charges.

Ever since then he has faced threats of deportation (Slick is a native of the UK).

Enter our new governor, David Paterson. The first legally blind and the first black governor of New York.

First order of business as our new governor: Pardon Slick Rick.
