Groundbreaking MC Slick Rick played his eighth annual birthday show (in celebration of his 53rd birthday) at NYC's Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday (1/20). He was backed by DJ Kaos and two backing singers, and he brought out many surprise guests, including Redman (who has been active with Method Man lately). The crowd was super into it and much of the night was a big singalong, Rick's son Rick Jr was a guest, and he also presented his father with a birthday cake for the occasion. Pictures of the party are in the gallery above.

Slick Rick also showed love to Cardi B at the show:
