"[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).
