Ricky Powell// Art
Ricky Powell, also known as The Rickster, has seen a lot of history. He has worked as a busboy, bike messenger, Frozade vendor, substitute teacher, columnist, cable television host, comic and dog walker. But, he is best-known as a wisecracking, self-described "playground rat" who used his beat-up Minolta and party-crashing skills to become a nightlife fixture and a chronicler of the then-exploding world of hip-hop.
