Mona Lisa (Slick Rick)

Leonardo da Vinci had his Mona Lisa and Slick Rick had his. While da Vinci’s was the silent type, Rick took hip hop fans on an adventure with his green-eyed temptress. “Mona Lisa,” the 1998 single featured on the Bronx MC’s 1988 album, is one of the greatest songs in hip hop history.
