4 words say it all: "I'm Rick James, bitch." At least he shows his reverence by accepting the lifetime achievement award in the name of hip-hop, and stating that "people consider us writers now. That's crazy, right? It's a beautiful thing." Thank you, Rick, for the profound lyrics in "Give it to Me, Baby." And let us not forget "Super Freak," which spawned Hammer's equally immortal "You Can't Touch This." Those pants still haunt me.
