NahRight & UpNorthTrips Present: Picture Perfect with Ricky Powell

Friday, August 8th, 2014


Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

Ricky Powell aka The Rickster, for those who don’t already know, is the man behind some of the most iconic images in the history of hip-hop and NYC street photography. Whether it was the Beastie Boys or Run-D.M.C. or Public Enemy, he was always up in the mix, ready to take professional photos of the early Def Jam scene on what he describes as “a hangout tip.” And he was heavy in the culture beyond that, snapping timeless shots of everyone from Basquiat to Eazy E to Big L (RIP to all), and hosting his infamous public access television show Rappin’ with The Rickster (which is now available on DVD), which gave people an opportunity to become acquainted with his extremely fun-loving personality. Point blank, dude has taken some of the illest rap flicks of all-time and is a legendary character in the game, so it was only right that we tap him for our Picture Perfect series.

Along with our brother Ev Boogie at UpNorthTrips, who we insist be recognized as the kingpin of the throwback rap photo wave that every other Instagram account seems to be riding these days, we carefully compiled ten classic pictures of different hip-hop artists Ricky Powell has taken over the years to ask him about for our latest edition of Picture Perfect. And it was an honor to listen (and laugh) as he told the stories behind them while walking the NYC streets, pausing at times to say what’s up to friends of his on the block (and his building’s new super), take a photo of a cute dog for his Instagram account, curse out a group of Sex and the City wannabees, dodge getting hit by a delivery man on a bicycle, and collect a rack from a Manhattan restaurant who recently put his work on display. This is Picture Perfect with the guy who dicked your girl—Ricky Powell.

10 Classic Beastie Boys Television Performances

Monday, June 9th, 2014

The passing of Beasties Boys member MCA in 2012 is still being felt today by his family, friends, and fans, and that pain won’t let up anytime soon. Whether you grew up a hardcore fan like I did listening to the Beastie Boys’ music or not, their contribution as a group to the culture is undeniable, and MCA was the heart and soul of all they gave to us. Every white rapper out here (including myself) owes the Beastie Boys a debt of gratitude for breaking down barriers for them early on. They knew how to make hit records, have fun, and unlike fellow contemporary white hip-hop artists like Vanilla Ice, they never came off corny. They were three dope MCs and musicians who represented New York to the fullest, were never afraid to be themselves, and with every album release, they pushed hip-hop forward. And most especially, they were ill performers, who knew how to put on a great live show.

To honor MCA and his living bandmates Mike D and Ad-Rock, and celebrate this year’s 20th anniversary of their album Ill Communication (which is a personal Ipcus favorite), I put together a collection of 10 Classic Beastie Boys Television Performances for our latest Video Vault. These hand-picked clips span the first 20 years of their career dating back to their infant stages as a punk band in 1984, and showcase the Beasties’ incredible on-stage chemistry, from the rhymes to the instrumental riffs to the humor. Click the link below to read/watch. This is dedicated to MCA, Rest In Peace.

They’re In: Beastie Boys to be Inducted Into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

The votes are in and the guardians of the great Rock and Roll canon have deemed Mike D, MCA and Ad-Rock  worthy of induction into their shrine to the Gods of Rock in Cleveland. While there shouldn’t be any question of the Beastie’s contributions to the culture of Hip-Hop, they are certainly one of the more “Rocky” Hip-Hop acts in history, with their punk sensibilites and all that damn Jack Daniels they consumed during the 80’s. It’s funny, but ever since Paul’s Boutique, they’ve kinda become that one group that your white friend from college who doesn’t listen to Hip-Hop listens to, which is unfortunate but understanable. I’m actually surprised the Hall and it’s voters didn’t trip all over themselves to put these guys in before Run DMC a couple of years back. Passed over for induction this year were Eric B. and Rakim, which doesn’t really surprise me, although I’m confident they’ll make it on their next round. Nevertheless, the induction of The Beasties is much deserved and long overdue.

Other artists entering the hall this year will include Guns & Roses, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Donovan, Freddie King and group Small Faces. The induction ceremony is scheduled for April 14th in Cleveland.
