Slick Rick the Ruler dies a horrible death on stage while performing at the halftime performance at the Barclays Center. Not actually physically dying but he had a horrible performance. Slick Rick was performing at the Nets/Knicks he probably was called personally by Jay-Z to perform at the biggest basketball game in NY. Instead of giving a great performance, he shows up high or drunk.

I couldn't distinguish what he was under the influence of during the performance. Slick Rick is a legend in the hip hop game but he is 40 plus years old he should be able to handle his alcohol or drugs better than this. Slick Rick knows better.
