Ricky Powell – his voice unmistakable, his anecdotes unique, high top sneakers and a hat his style, his pocket radio soundtrack a relict from times past, his photography iconic. Photographer Ricky Powell is the quintessential New Yorker. He represents the New York we love and has captured it for generations to come. Happy Birthday Rickster!
(Enjoy Ricky Powell’s world famous slide show on Rappin’ with the Rickster, 2 disc DVD set, 164 minutes of Ricky Powell ‘the mandingus general… The lazy hustler supreme. So don’t be a jerkoff. Cop the DVD or keep it moving.’)
