Jermaine Dupri

"[Slick Rick] was really like one of the first people I wanted to work on my album

because he was just like my idol from day one. I used to put like aluminum foil

on my teeth so that [my teeth] could be like his teeth. I used to do all that. I just

wanted to have all the jewelry and all that -- getting fake jewelry so I could look

like Slick Rick." -- Jermaine Dupri on why he selected Slick Rick as one of the

rappers to appear on the noted producer's forthcoming debut album, Life in

1472 (July 21).
