Updated: Slick Rick's month-long residency on Avenue A



EVG regular Greg Masters spotted Bronx-based artist Andre Trenier creating this month's mural on the roll-down gate at Mikey Likes It, 199 Avenue A near East 12th Street.



The mural is of Slick Rick to coincide with the ice cream shop's flavor of the month…



Previous artists on the gate have included Madonna, Will Smith and Prince.

Updated 9/3

Here's the final version of the gate... via the Mikey Likes It Tumblr..



... and the September specialty ice cream ...

SLICK RICK!

One of my favorite old school cats. I am so happy Mikey is bringing old school hip-hop culture back to the Lower East Side and Avenue A!

Forget not the Beastie Boys recorded their first album on Avenue A!

Slick Rick's "Children's Story" is a wonderful piece of musical art, 30 years later.

Gonna stop by and grab some ice cream tonight. Love that place so much.

If I didn't have to lose weight for health reasons, I would eat at this place every day.
