Rappin with the Rickster 2017 Episode 1: Brooklyn Firefly x Burton & TheGoodLife! Crew

Our favorite Funky Uncle is getting a head start on 2017 with the first new episode of his classic show “Rappin with the Rickster!” Originally created in 1990 for public access television, the show chronicles the characters of NYC as only Ricky Powell can. In this episode Ricky goes to Bay Ridge, Brooklyn to the opening of Mr. Kaves’ new pizzaria, Brooklyn Firefly, and then to the opening of the new Burton Flagship store in SoHo to kick it with artist Phil Frost and TheGoodLife! fam.
