Pioneer Rapper Slick Rick Shows Off His Collection of Diamond-Encrusted Eye Patches

Slick Rick, frequently cited as one of the most influential rappers of all time and a favorite of both Nas and Snoop Dogg, recently appeared in a GQ video to show off his staggering collection of bling. 

Living up to his name, the dapper rapper dressed in a striking cannabis green, showed GQ his slick jewelry collection, which, naturally, contained several designer eye patches.

Slick Rick was blinded in one eye by a shard of glass a child, a fact that he was initially ashamed off, usually wearing dark glasses to hide the fact at his early shows. Before long, however, his patented eye patch became a staple of his look, offering him something extremely valuable to rappers of the day—an opportunity to flex.

In the video, Rick shows off two iced-out eye patches that, at he says, completes his whole “pirate look.”

Watch him show off his eye patches, gold chains and more in the full video below.
