Where Was Rick James' House?

April 6, 2024

Rick James was a singer, songwriter, and record producer. With timeless hits such as "Super Freak" "Give It To Me baby" and "Mary Jane", Rick is an icon. He was born and raised in Buffalo, NY, and entered the music scene when he was a teenager. In 1977 he signed with Gordy Records, and released the album Come Get It!. A few years later in 1981 the album Street Songs was released, and Rick really catapulted into stardom. In 1990 MC Hammer sampled "Super Freak" for his song "U Can't Touch This." Unfortunately, during the 90s Rick was really suffering from a drug addiction, and legal troubles. He announced his retirement in 1998 after suffering a mild stroke. In 2004, a few years after announcing his retirement, he appeared on Chappelle's Show, playing himself and portraying an elaborate skit of his life in the 80s. This appearance reinvigorated him, and a new generation had become fans. He started to perform again, and went on the road. Sadly, he died later that year from heart failure, at just 56 years old. Take a look at Rick James' house below.
