No one can ever complain when unreleased music from hip-hop great Slick Rick sees the light of day. Add to the mix that legendary producer Prince Paul had a hand it the song’s creation, and we’re left with a win-win situation. Prince Paul shares the story behind the track which was recorded in 1992:

This was the original version of “Behind bars” I recorded for Slick Rick during his incarceration in the early 90’s. The song didn’t come out until 94 but to my surprise was remixed by Warren G and Def Jam scrapped my mix. Though Im still considered a writer of the song I was really hoping to have this heard (well in 92 when we recorded it that is) . Though it sounds pretty dated its still one of my favorites and I had the pleasure of working with a Genius Slick Rick . Enjoy the Prince Paul unreleased series.

Stream the track below.
