Special Derby Report by Sherlene Shanklin, WHAS11 Television/ABC, Louisville
We are just days away from the 142nd Run for the Roses and the sure bet tonight in entertainment is Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick. The hip-hop legends will be a part of the Kentucky Derby Festival waterfront Jam. The concert is scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m.
This is “The Show” you don’t want to miss with the original human beatbox. When Rick the Ruler takes the stage and the “Children’s Story” begins to the play the crowd will definitely sing along.
Ricky “Slick Rick” Martin Lloyd Walters just announced his “Victory Tour” after he became an American citizen. The English-born rapper took the oath during a ceremony in April after a . Once he announced his tour he says “I’m celebrating a new beginning”.
Rick’s official DJ is Louisville’s own Dwight “DJ Kaos” Chatman. It’s always good to see him on the stage with the hip-hop legends.
Did I mention the cost for the show? All you need is a 2016 Pegasus pins. You can purchase in retail outlets throughout for the city for only $5. If you purchase the pin at the gate it’s $7.
