Hi, I'm Homeowner, Slick Rick...

The biggest achievement of rap pioneer Slick Rick's life? Owning real estate in the BoogieDown.

Slick Rick knows a good thing when he sees it. And the eye-patched lyricist also has his priorities straight as to what's important in life. Does he think selling millions of records was his greatest accomplishment? Nah... Rick says:

"I guess my biggest accomplishment would be to purchase some real estate in the Bronx ... to have something to fall back on a rainy day" [Associated Press]

On top of running from INS, fighting extradition to his native Britain and getting pardoned by the equally smooth NY Governor Paterson, the Slick one still found time to make a wise investment in Bronx real estate. Rick, you're my hero. Now let's put this bloke in charge of administering the bailout package. He clearly knows what's going on.
